Oak Cliff sports bar Alley Oops closed about two months ago, and building owner Square Foot Inc. has been looking for the perfect new tennant. The 1,400 square-foot space is adjacent to Beckley Brewhouse and down the street from Spiral Diner. "We’re thinking independent and community oriented," broker Linda Holt said. "We’re wide open to suggestions, but we think it would be great for a home-cooking place with a screendoor on the front, or maybe a barbecue place."
Alley Oops’s original owner, Kenneth Cross, sold the business last year. "It didn’t work out for them," Holt said. "I think they just didn’t quite know what they were getting into. But we’re ready for the next one. Let’s try somebody else."
