Back Alley Sally’s, Footscray

MELBOURNE | Back Alley Sally’s features many of the trademarks of owner Jerome Borazio’s other ventures, Sister Bella, Ponyfish Island, 1000 Pound Bend, and of course Melbourne lane way O.G. St Jerome’s. To enter, you need to venture down a laneway, enter an old t-shirt printing warehouse and walk up an unmarked set of stairs. There, the space opens up into a suitably grungy, vibrant, exciting venue with a large bar, lots of standing space, some high tables and booths.

The drinks menu is very decent, with a good selection of beer, wine, spirits and cocktails on offer. It’s all keenly priced, which makes sense given its location close to Victoria University and appeal to students. It’s not a craft beer venue, but there are enough local, crafty brews amongst the mainstream options on the draught, bottle, and can list to keep any fussy beer drinkers satisfied. The taps also features a rotating selection of Aussie and Kiwi wines.

The food menu isn’t large, but does the trick, consisting of a variety of tasty pizzas made by sister shop Slice Girls West, downstairs. There’s the “Viva Forever” with napoli sauce, mozzarella, oregano, fresh basil, cherry tomato, or our favourite, the “Wannabe Warwick”, with napoli sauce, shaved ham, mozzarella, olives, artichoke hearts, mushrooms, baby capers, oregano. There’s also lasagna, nachos, soups and a few other bits and pieces on the menu for those who don’t want pizza.

Good food, good drinks, and a whole lot of fun makes Back Alley Sally’s a place that warrants repeat visits.
