#SpaceNerds Cocktail Week!

You want to know who loves cocktails? Star Wars nerds like us! This week we’ve been celebrating all things nerdy and punny with Star Wars and Cocktails! ¬†Starting on 5/4 (May the Fourth be with you!) we’ve been making cocktails like “Red 5 Standing By” or the “Vieux or Vieux not there is no rye” (a play on the classic Vieux Carre cocktail!)

Whether you like drinks, or like Star Wars, come by and laugh and drink with us! Festivities come to a close on Sunday for our sold out party starting at 8pm!

Test Pilot Tuesdays!!!

Journeyman restaurant is an awesome dinner experience. They offer a many course tasting menu Wednesday through Sunday. It’s delicious and you should try it. But if you’re scared to invest in a full dinner than you should come to backbar on Tuesday nights. In addition to our small bites and appetizers and our amazing RAMEN we will be offering a course from the Journeyman kitchen that they’re testing out. So come on in and try a single course of amazing Journeyman food and try our Drink of the Day that will be a delicious pairing with it. Price varies depending on the size of the dish.

Starts tonight so come on in!!!
