Reviews for The Back Room

This place is really cool. The walk-in was unexpected (or expected if you researched it like i did) and really fun to walk through an alley to an actual speakeasy. Contrary to other reviews i read, the staff was really friendly and attentive. We were also there during the 8pm hour, so it wasnt too busy and easy to get in and find a table. Coffee cups w booze were cute!

This was my first time going to a speakeasy and to my surprise it was a lot of fun. The Back Room was mine and my cousin's first time there and initially locating this place was a bit difficult. You have to go down a set of stairs that leads you to this alleyway, which at first seemed a bit sketchy to us. However, once we found the place it had a nice chill vibe. It wasn't busy at all - especially since we went on a Tuesday night. The bartender was very nice. The drinks were full review
An authentic speakeasy, with a completely unauthentic music least on the Fri night we had the chance to visit this great spot. Not just authentic looking and feeling, but one of 2 actual locations that were functioning establishments back in the day. A piece of history people should see...just not on a Friday night. Arrived around 9pm after an earlier dinner and it was already half full, and a "DJ" was starting turn up the awful club music....and I mean awful. He full review
