I've been wanting to try backbar since seeing it on so many "best of" lists for Boston bars. After attempting to get in last Friday night but the line was too long, I returned on Tuesday night and was able to get in. I was happy to find that backbar lives up to the reviews! The staff are all so knowledgeable about the menu and we're very helpful in selecting the perfect cocktail, which I got an elevated espresso martini that had tequila in it. There's a rotating seasonal menu as well as daily specials, so there was a lot of variety to choose from. I also got the ranch popcorn and fermented veggies as small bites, which were both delicious. I think backbar is the perfect spot for a date, but I wouldn't recommend bringing a big group since the seating is benches along the exterior and it would be hard to have a conversation if your party is more than three people. Tip (20%) is automatically included, which I appreciate and I hope that more establishments will be able to do so that staff can be compensated fairly. I'll definitely be back to backbar regularly to try out the rest of the menu!

Great service and great drinks. Definitely one of the best bars in the Boston area. Very feel places have a staff as knowledgeable as backbar.
