Located at the Intersection of Drinking & Writing.
Backspace Bar & Kitchen New Orleans is the perfect French Quarter oasis for culinary, literary and cocktail aficionados.
Recently remodeled with new seating and decor, the long mahogany bar still remains as mute testimony to days gone by where writers from many walks of life have penned thoughts and scribbled vignettes on dirty napkins.
Backspace is the perfect spot to grab a bite, have a drink, and get those creative juices flowing.

Backspace Bar's website introduction
Pairing a cocktail with the creative process is like uncorking bottled poetry. Luckily, New Orleans is like a good page-turner, filled to the foamy rim with a smorgasbord of inspiration. Backspace Bar & Kitchen is a novel destination for wordsmiths and epicureans alike.
Both barflies and book clubs find solace in the cozy civility of Backspace Bar where liquor bottles line the bookshelves and the patrons are equally obsessed with literature and libations. Serving comfort food and classic cocktails, Backspace offers a literary feast for the senses with the Grown-Up Grilled Cheese, Hemingway Cuban Sandwich, and Grandma's Meatloaf with Housemade Chip.
Smack dab in the heart of the French Quarter, Backspace Bar pays homage to New Orleans wordslingers such as Faulkner, Twain, Tennessee Williams, and every infamous author whose clattering typewriters still echo. Come get well-oiled on witty repartee in the Vieux Carré!

Midnight Boheme revised the existing Backspace Bar & Kitchen logo for a series of merchandise items that are currently sold at the one and only Backspace in the French Quarter of New Orleans. Items include stylish koozies that feature a map showing the bar's location on Chartres Street.
In keeping with Backspace's literary theme, Midnight Boheme also hand-sketched digital portraits of infamous authors such as Ernest Hemmingway, William Faulkner, and Mark Twain complete with famous quotes by each writer that are printed on sleek black t-shirts and sold at the bar.

Featuring the official "Muse" of Backspace, the creativity of the bar's business cards are only more fabulous by the iconic Veronika the Va-Va-Voom girl!
Veronika, Backspace Bar’s saucy muse, is both a spitfire and a scholar. She adores reading and discussing the classics, and she has a particular affinity for the authors that hail from her beloved Crescent City. She defies typical domestic stereotypes, opting instead to read and enjoy cocktails, all while looking absolutely fabulous.
