Just had my birthday party there last night, perfect spot! I have never had such an effortlessly amazing night. Staff was extremely helpful, awesome drinks served in huge tea cups and beers served in brown paper bags, hilarious! Absolutely recommend this as a great bday spot, call to reserve an area/table.
Secret of New York

I was thrilled to show my visiting friends this venue, I didn't know what to expect. It's such a nice environment, interior and the teacups makes it even a better experience.

I've been to The Back Room a few times and it's always been extremely crowded There are many bars that are meant to be packed with people, but this place just isn't one of them. The couches, coffee tables, and general set-up of the bar makes it really difficult to move around, and so the atmosphere is completely lost. Drinks are pricey but very much on par with your typical Manhattan bar. The mixed drinks are very weak and served in teacups which makes them smaller and difficult to hold after a while. What I dislike the most about this place is that the bartenders are very rude and arrogant. I have no desire to spend my money on a business that can't even find a way to show some respect and common decency.
Great looking place, expensive drinks

I've been here twice and live right around the corner. At first, you'll be wowed by the secret entrance, the faux speak easy atmosphere, and red velvet ambience. It's cool they serve their drinks in teacups. The high price is not so cool, but it keeps out the riffraff. So yes, a little like a themepark--fun if you're in the mood.
