Glad to see that this place is doing great. It's been about 10 to 15 years since my last visit. I performed on your talent night shows during 2000-02. May have to swing by and say hi to everyone so I can get caught up with all of what's new.

Had the time of my life last night! The staff was so friendly and helpful and David poured cocktails that kept the party rolling! If you are reading this, please do yourself a favor and visit this amazing venue! (Haven't been hung over like this in years! It has taken 3 cups of coffee just to find the words! Lol)

Emily Hicks(Saturday, January 16 16 12:18 pm EST)
When I was 23; I landed in Chattanooga with nothing more than 100 dollars and the clothes on my back. At the airport I took the 1st job I could find and became Chatt's premiere female nightshift
cabbie. My first nights were full of terrors- meth heads and theives... but just as I was about to give up hope, I discovered Alan Golds. No exaggeration: you were my absolute salvation. I look back
fondly on the summer I spent exclusively chauffeuring your clientele. Y'all were kind to me- y'all gave me a safe place to work at night; told me where the good food was, and gave me all the business
I needed to get back on my feet safely. I'm a boring city executive now, but I still look back on this place and community with so much fondness. You are a treasure. I don't know Where I Would Be
Today Without Alan Golds and the precious people who fill this space with warmth and exuberance. <3
nichelle weaver(Sunday, January 10 16 09:43 pm EST)
hello im nichelle in im new to town in would love to come visit your club i heard good things so ill b to visit soon
In the mid-eighties, Alan & Macie gave me my first professional break as a DJ. At the time, I was terrified to approach them with the idea, because I'm straight, which I naively assumed would
pose a problem with some members of the audience. But they didn't seem to mind, and neither did the crowd. Spinning early tracks by bands like New Order, Bronski Beat, and kissing The Pink were some
of my favorite memories, and the acceptance by a crowd that was so culturally and sexually diverse was a feeling that I will always cherish. I still remember being approached by a performer named
Coco Chanel who I mistakenly thought was propositioning me. I'll never forget her reply. "I wasn't hitting on you, baby. And even if I was, I'm a woman, so it's okay." I was embarrassed, but secretly
flattered. I'll never forget those times. I professionally DJed for a few more years while doing other jobs, but eventually I started a family and settled down. But what those early days did for me
was give me confidence. i still DJ a bit, but these days I'm happy with music production. Thank you Alan (those free dogs on Sunday were always appreciated), Macie (you and the Yorkie covering the
door always made it seem somehow more exotic), and all staff at Alan's for making me feel loved. They were the best of times. Cheers, and keep dancing.
Tanisha Thomas(Sunday, October 04 15 11:48 pm EDT)
Hello love the show just need more variety of music.
Dan Clarke(Sunday, September 27 15 05:22 pm EDT)
This was such a fun bar that I used to visit every weekend until I moved to California in 1981. I'm glad Chattanooga still has a friendly place to meet others and have fun.
Rachael Blackton(Saturday, September 26 15 11:57 pm EDT)
My first bar at 18 and at 42 I still consider it to be my bar
Sabrina(Sunday, August 09 15 10:36 am EDT)

Monique(Thursday, July 09 15 02:16 pm EDT)
Josh Weller(Thursday, July 09 15 01:53 pm EDT)

Robin(Saturday, May 02 15 08:24 pm EDT)
Hello everyone sorry for your loss.

We will miss you so much Carl. Much love to you.
David(Monday, April 13 15 11:52 am EDT)
Thanks, from the few of us who don\'t do Facebook, for posting an update on Carl. A friend told me about the accident but didn\'t know how he was. I\'m an \"oldtimer\" that doesn\'t go out anymore
but have known Carl for yrs from down there. Will be keeping him in my thoughts & hope he keeps improving & can recover. Please post more updates as you get them, if possible. Thanks.

Hello, does anyone know how i could contact old friends whose stage names were Rachel McClain and Vanessa Michele? They were active doing shows back in the 80\'s. I\'d love to see how they are doing.
Appreciate any help.
Joanie Rhudy(Monday, September 22 14 04:52 pm EDT)
Girls night out...Had a Blast! Everyone was really nice and we all danced all night long. Drinks were strong and well worth the money! The cross dancers were amazingly good! We will for sure be
Patrick Todaro(Friday, September 06 13 07:32 pm EDT)
I love this place. It is the only place I can go and have fun without my "wife" around. The girls are hot and the men are even hotter! Can't wait to come back soon.
Jessica Porter(Friday, September 06 13 03:28 am EDT)
I used to love Allen Gold's. I'm in Minneapolis now tho. I was a gay male back then but have since come out in 2011 as transgender. I've changed my name from Josh Nordyke to Jessica Renee Porter.
Would love to come visit sometime. My family still lives down there. Love y'all :-* XOXOXOXO
Jason(Sunday, September 01 13 09:41 pm EDT)
Was up from Atlanta last night and attended the show. Holy amazingness! Work! I can't remember the name of the first dancer but she did a dance to some sort of remix of Ginuwine's "Pony" (which I am
now dying to find) and absolutely killed it! You will see my face again for sure.
Greg Rushing(Saturday, August 03 13 11:42 pm EDT)
Just moved to Chattanooga due to job transfer have never been to your club.
Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger
but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any recommendations for rookie blog writers? I'd certainly appreciate it.
Bob Alred(Saturday, February 02 13 12:14 am EST)
Remember AG in 1980-1983, drove down from Ktown to meet with CHA friends. Glad to know AG is still around. Remember the 25cent breakfast after LCFA. Live in Albuquerque now but next time I'm in CHA
will stop by just for old time's sake.
Had such a fantastic time here last night! My husband and I came with another couple and we played pool for awhile, then enjoyed the drag queen show and hit the dance floor afterward. It was a fun,
welcoming environment and we can't wait to come back.
Shelley Mason(Wednesday, January 16 13 11:12 am EST)
