The Anti-Saloon League was a social interest group active in Birmingham in the early 20th century. The league argued for more restrictions on the sale of alcohol, and, ultimately, for Prohibition.

The national Anti-Saloon League was headquartered in Dallas, Texas. Former Howard College president Benjamin Franklin Riley served as its president for a time. The local offices of the Anti-Saloon League were in room 3 of the Watts Building at 2006 3rd Avenue North.
