Alex's is listed in a single national 'Gay Bar Guides' in 1970, suggesting it was open from about 1969 or earlier, but didn't survive more than a year or two. The note indicates it was "by the Greyhound Bus Depot". No local references have yet been located.

More information about this business is welcomed from anyone who can contribute it.
