Located on Chartres St - just across from the Marriott Hotel. Very neat old bar with great bartenders! The drinks are great, and the atmosphere is super cool! If you go, ask for a "Zelda's Revenge" - a drink made with Absinthe!!

Backspace is one of the only places in the Quarter I go to, because it somehow stays out of the Quarter's craziness. It's a classy-looking place with dark wooden walls and books and old typewriters used as decoration throughout the bar. The drinks are reasonably...More

Don't assume this is just your typical dive bar with typical bar food. The food was amazing and the prices were def not Bourbon St. prices. Really AWESOME food with cool tunes in the background.

Backspace offers a welcome break from the perma-Spring Break pace of Bourbon Street, and if you have a few nights to spend in the Quarter, treat yourself to unwinding at Backspace for one of them. It's a gorgeous atmosphere (looks like a den in an...More

The best burger i have had in a long time..so good that we went back a second time in our weeklong vacation for another one. Second time, the service was a little slow, but we were in no hurry.

Visited during the afternoon so not the most exciting time. Gumbo was very tasty and there was a good selection of beers. Very helpful bartender. Worth a look.

Love the decor . Drinks have names after famous writers or lines from their books. Try "Between the Sheets" Food so so and very slow getting out of the kitchen. They allow smoking and have ashtrays and matches on every table which I didn't like....More

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
