Time Out for Alex!

backbar is back open! After a few day vacation to enjoy the incredibly successful Thirst Boston, backbar is back and supporting our good friend and former bartender: Alex Homans! Unfortunately about a month ago Alex was hit by a careless car while on his bicycle. He is fine, and recovering, but it will be at least a couple months before he will be able to work again at his new restaurant Fairstead Kitchen in Brookline. In an industry that doesn’t have a lot of insurance options or ways to get paid while not actually working behind a bar, sometimes you need friends to help you out. This week backbar is donating all of our proceeds from our drink of the week, a blue daiquiri with Bacardi rum to Alex in hopes of a speedy and care free recovery!

Drink is World’s Best Cocktail Bar!

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!

Journey Burger!

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!
