This first round of voting for Bar-ch Madness is here!

ALT 101.7 has put together a list of the Druid City's top 32 bars and now it's up to you.


There are no divisions in the bracket (we believe in unity at Tuscaloosa's New Alternative) and the matchups were randomized. Take a look at it for yourself below.

32 Bars. One Champion.
