Backspace Bar & Kitchen

Can anyone tell me about this bar on Chartres St.? Is it a dive bar? Good food or just bar food?

Wow...that's the old Evelyn's restaurant...sounds fancier now. They describe it as:

"Backspace Bar is a true diamond in the rough of surrounding dive bars that line Chartres Street. With its elegant antique finished wood and stone environment and menu of comfort foods....Backspace provides a warm, welcoming experience that will keep you coming back for more"!

So no...it doesn't sound like a dive bar.

Ate there once. Nothing special. Burger was good. Old typewriters scattered about. Fireplace with gas insert fake logs.

I suspect the OP may have been asking about it last year because they opened one in Key West and we were all curious what it would be like. It seemed like it took forever to renovate the building and open the Key West location (in February or March of this year) and it's already closed. We visited the NOLA location in February for drinks, didn't get any food. It's not a dive bar at all and seemed to be very popular with the locals (go figure).
