Downtown Frankfort is a beautiful, historical, and family-friendly area in Kentucky, with an atmosphere most towns dream of obtaining for their citizens and visitors. However,  one particular business' customers have continuously disrupted the flourishing and thriving parts of downtown with consistent severe intoxication, violence, and crime and have attracted and allowed those who partake in these illegal activities to roam the streets of downtown Frankfort. 

Most citizens of Frankfort that have spent time in the downtown area have observed illegal and threatening behavior of the patrons of The Brick Alley bar. While children are playing, families are attending dinner, or downtown residents are completing their daily tasks, unacceptable behavior is being exposed in the heart of downtown Frankfort. 

  • over-serving of alcohol
  • extensive and unnecessary hours of operation 
  • outside partaking of fights, vulgarity, and exposed severe intoxication
  • illegal activities including the sales of drugs within the establishment
  • the allowance of operating vehicles/motorcycles while intoxicated
  • irresponsible monitoring of customers and their behavior

The violence, crime, threats, and intimidation oozing from The Brick Alley is actively ruining the charming atmosphere this community has worked so hard for. Murders, drugs, fights, and words of violence are filling the downtown streets and exploiting fear into our citizens' daily lives. Residents and business are fearing their livelihood and safety, resulting in a consideration of moving from the downtown area. Without change, our downtown area will become ridden with crime and violence, while our citizens avoid attending downtown events, restaurants, and parks for fear of their safety; businesses and homes will be moved to different locations and cities. 

The Brick Alley must accept their responsibility in this matter, refuse any business to those who conduct in this behavior, and change their ways of business, including but not limited to pricing, over-serving, inappropriate atmosphere, hours of operation, and illegal behaviors within the establishment. 

The City of Frankfort must recognize the destruction of our community relentlessly deriving from The Brick Alley bar. A resolution must be made in order to protect our citizens, visitors, and atmosphere of downtown Frankfort.
