NileGuide Expert tip:
Go for drinks, but stay for dinner. Make a meal out of the fabulous bar snacks they serve.
Backbar's speakeasy-esq interior comes complete with wooden stools that look like the empty shipping crates I'd imagine bootleggers used to transport their stuff "Boardwalk Empire" style in the 1920's. The clientele is more hipster than flapper and the music more 1980's than 1920's but the ice comes in chunks in the creative cocktails they serve.
Due to it's affiliation with neighboring restaurant, the fabulously seasonal/local joint Journeyman, Backbar patrons sample the cuisine that makes Journeyman so special without the Journeyman price tag.
