Reservation Policy

Backbar offers reservations for parties of six or more only, Tuesday through Thursday, between the hours of 4:00pm – 10:30pm. All other guests will be seated on a first come, first serve basis.

Reservations can be made by e-mailing In your e-mail, please include your name, the date, time, and the number of guests in your party. Parties of twenty or more guests are welcome to rent the bar for the evening. More information on buy-outs can be obtained via e-mail.

Regretfully, we cannot accept same day reservations, nor can reservations be modified the day of. Due to a high volume of business, we may be unable to honor reservations for parties that arrive twenty or more minutes late.

Please note that we do not accept reservations for Friday and Saturday. We are typically busiest between 8:00 pm and 11:00 pm so we reccomend considering coming earlier or later in the evening.
