Backspace Bar & Kitchen Reviews
Stopped in here for some late night eats! Had the BLT and chicken caprese sandwiches - everything was good! The bartender is so fun & friendly I didn’t get his name he’s a joy! Reasonably priced. more »
Was there for about 2 hours. Ladies room was out of order so men's room was only option. Impeccably clean and inviting. Great little pub. Drinks were delicious and service was great. Will definitely return next time I am in the area.
Lovely people in a posh little space. We had the Cuban sandwich and the house burger. DH said it was some of the best food he's had in NOLA and we've eat all over for a week! All served with gracious service and a deft bar hand.
