Music Alley Banner

Rejuvenated South Fourth Street Alley Renamed To Music Alley

The alley between Mercury Ballroom and the Louisville Public Media building is Downtown Louisville’s latest example of “tactical urbanism” and was renamed today to Music Alley. The privately owned alley recently underwent a makeover that includes all-night market lighting, painting of the concrete surface, plantings, and the addition of a fenced enclosure with Alley Gallery artwork to provide on-site storage of furniture.
