Stepped in here for a quick drink or two while meandering the quarter. Decent service by bartender and interesting decor.

“New Orleans Nightlife”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

I have been visiting New Orleans for over 15 years, so I have a shortlist of clubs and bars I frequent, but I am always on the look out for a new hotspot.

I had read an article reviewing several bars that appealed to visitors as well as locals and decided to visit The Backspace Bar and Kitchen.

It was a weeknight, so the bar was semi-full, the atmosphere is reminiscent of a great living room with comfortable leather chairs, a fireplace and dark wood. The lighting is very dim and with the warm, damp NOLA weather, Backspace Bar seems like a cozy, warm hearth to chase away a cold winter's day.

I had one of the signiture cocktails, called Death in the Afternoon, which is a shot of Absinthe and topped off with Champagn in a flute glass. It was not for the faint of heart, or those who don't care for the licorice taste of Absinthe, but I enjoyed it.

Overall a very enjoyable neighborhood type bar in the French Quarter. Take a chance on something new and off of the Bourbon street Strip!
