Description: The BackRoom Wine Bar is the last addition to the family of restaurants by Todd and Kellie Stevens. The Alley House and Farrago have been tripadvisor's top picks for Pagosa Springs for some time now and The Backroom is soon to be as well. It features "small plates", awesome wines and local micro brews. With cozy indoor seating and an outdoor fire pit it is the perfect place to chill and chat with friends and loved ones.

“Tapas and wine!”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

Our hotel told us about a guy playing music at the wine bar, so we strolled down and walked into a small, homey wine bar with some tables and chairs. We were welcomed and the wine list and tapas menu presented. We ordered a bottle of Moscato and had three tapas. I had the Humbolt Fog, Tomato Kalamata Tapenade, Pecan Basil Pesto and Crostini. The Felafel with harissa and cheese stuffing. My wife had the artichoke cheese mini-casserole with pita chips. All was good and tasty. And the live entertainment was just right.

“Went Back a Second Night”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

Great ambience. The wine was a little pricey (for Pagosa) but the generous pours more than made up for it. The owners were friendly and laid back. The menu was original and the food excellent. By far the best dining experience of our trip.

“Great tapas and eclectic wines”
Reviewed 8 August 2013

A nice tapas wine bar. Started with a little JCB bubbly for my date and a nice Malbec for me, accompanied by a good octopus tapa and a great Kalamata olive tampanade with outstanding Humbolt cheese. Followed with more JCB and an outstanding meritage . A fantastic personal pizza of goat cheese and smoked lamb that was incredible. Go with a friend or someone you love. Leave the kids at home. Sit outside by the fire if weather permits. Quality and service in line with the pricing.

“Great option for Pagosa”
Reviewed 21 July 2013 via mobile

Simply put I will go back on my next trip to Pagosa. The staff was great. It was fun to sample the wines. We were going to have a little wine and a tapas for appetizer then go to another restaurant for dinner. We enjoyed the tapas so much we just kicked back enjoyed a great bottle of wine and kept ordering tapas. Yummy and fun.

Nice way to while away an evening after soaking in the springs. Nice selection of wine and tapas. My wife and I had the tuna and octopus, as well as the Humboldt Fog cheese finished off with the truffles and a great tawny port. Great service. comfortable. One of the best finds on our trip.
