About The Backdoor
During the Prohibition, the act of drinking took on an amplified allure thanks to the inherent risk involved. Decorated by a theatrical set designer and secret-tunnel architect from New York, The Backdoor captures the hush-hush, devil-may-care spirit of the 1920s in a high-ceilinged speakeasy adorned with vintage chandeliers, ramshackle wall art, and tufted leather banquettes. The drinks aren't bad, either. Bartenders command a deep selection of bourbons, ryes, and gins, which can be ordered neat or mixed with house-made bitters, tinctures, and infusions to form complex concoctions. The simple food menu includes oyster shooters, crab cakes with aioli, and beef brisket.
Despite the precisely calibrated ambience, The Backdoor is a versatile space. Seattle Magazine called it "great for dates, a casual cocktail, or even a bros’ night out" in a 2011 review, and in June 2014, Seattle Magazine named it one of the city's hidden gems.
