We stopped at Alley Cat after work Friday They have been open for a couple of months now. The sign out front says "a contempary bar" Contempary describes the decor, glass blocks and bright lights a nice crowd was on hand. Maggie had a hot pastrimi on rye and it is what i should have had, it was great. I had a Italian panini which was very good but not as good as the pastrimi. Sweet potato fries were served with a maple pecan dip. Very hot and freshly made. It was crowded and loud but we really liked it. Unlike most bars around here large windows are featured.
Many years ago when I was out drinking we knew this place as Cassidy's. A big change, but a good one. A good adition to the Lancaster downtown area.
BTW the servers were one extremly attrictive group and even my wife said so.
