Ralli’s: Rock Bar or Gay Bar?

Yesterday, the patio’s bamboo fencing came down and a sign announcing the return of rock went up. The co-owner of Ralli’s Fourth Street Pub and Grill told me the restaurant/bar may be transitioning from the nighttime gay club format it began in October back to a live music venue. If it does, that means Downtown will return to having zero gay clubs, and the citywide total will contract to three (Exhale, Sidewinders, Albuquerque Social Club).

So how do you prefer Ralli’s? Rock bar or gay bar?
