4 out of 5 stars

Aside from the fantastic bar program at Odd Duck just down the street, this stretch of South Lamar was desperately in need of a proper cocktail bar. Thankfully, Backbeat not only filled the need but surpassed expectations. The creativity and talent here are evident in every cocktail—take, for example, the Cuffing Season (made with Arette Reposado tequila, Liber & Co orgeat, lime, maraschino, allspice dram, egg white, and peach and burlesque bitters) from the “Greatest Hits” section of the menu. The interior is a sleek nod to mid-century style, and in true Austin fashion Backbeat also has a rooftop patio with views of our ever-changing skyline.
