Oh my word! It’s finally here! backbar is putting on Star Wars Week! Come in and try our drink of the week, an Obi Wan Negroni, or maybe the drink of the day today: Admiral Backbar, “It’s Arrack!”
We’ll have fun drinks, props, toys, costumes, prizes and even the movies playing on the wall. Come in with a costume on and automatically win a prize!
It’s silly and ridiculous and bound to be a really fun time.
It’s almost Fall… come try some of our early autumn flavors! We just updated our menu design and our cocktail list. Come in and try some delicious creations like Trois Monks ($11) which is a frozen shandy blend of apple brandy, fresh lemon juice, house made apple sauce, yellow chartreuse, benedictine, chimay trappist ale and a touch of absinthe!
Here in Boston the cocktail scene just keeps growing. Many, many thanks has to go to John Gertsen and Barbara Lynch for creating Drink in South Boston. They have created something truly special by having a casual and fun, cocktail party atmosphere that just happens to serve up some of the best drinks on the planet. Drink definitely deserves the award of “World’s Best Cocktail Bar” which is exactly the title they just won down in New Orleans at Tales of the Cocktail. The bartending world puts on its version of the the Oscars every year at an international cocktail conference. This year Drink and others won big:
To honor the great Drink, my former home where I learned most of my tricks, we’re making the Fort Point cocktail for our drink of the week here at backbar. It’s Drink’s signature variation on a Manhattan, with rye whiskey, punt e mes, and benedictine. It’s a delicious, simple sipper. Cheers!
backbar will be closed starting today, Thursday 7/18/13 until we reopen next week on Wednesday 7/24/13. We apologize for the inconvenience. We’re taking a short summer vacation to New Orleans to a international cocktail conference called Tales of the Cocktail, so we’ll come back with new knowledge and fun stories. Mostly just fun stories. Have a good weekend!
Our Genius Hour just got even more delicious! I know all you Ramen-heads out there might be sad, but I think if you try the burger you’ll find out it’s for the better. Have no fear, Ramen will come back! I promise. But for the hot summer months there just something about a delicious burger that sounds so much more appealing! This $12, third pound burger, is made with delicious local meat, local tomato and onions, on top of fresh baked brioche buns. Served with house made pickles and local mixed green salad. But once again, we’re only making 15 per day. So get here early and often!
