With its gilded mirrors, antique furnishings, textured wallpaper, pressed metal ceilings and velvet drapery, Back Bar smacks of the opulence of yesteryear.
The delicious interior makes for a relaxing drinkery where the dulled lighting and music promote a cosy, conversation-based vibe. The patrons are therefore a chilled-out bunch of twenty and thirty-somethings rather than an excited throng of teenagers wanting to dance.
Back Bar's open fire is a favourite spot in winter, and the stuffed animal heads provide a conversation point - or even a conversation (although they won't talk back) if your friends get boring.
Cosy extension of your living room that's tucked away just perfectly.
A cozy, well appointed bar where locals and guests are treated to fine service, thoughtful drink selection and decent bar snacks. The appeal of back bar is its small size; it doesn't take long to fill up with patrons bantering next to the open log fire. You never quite know who you will end up sharing your plush velvet couch with.

Back bar is a hidden jewel of Windsor - their cocktails are gorgeous & worth waiting for. Great ambience, one of my fave places on a cold winter's Saturday night. Their open fire is lovely. A very cosy, comfortable yet elegant place for drinks. Music is chilled but groovy and although the size of the place is quite cosy, there always seems to be an extra chair or 2 avail for extra friends! Cool 30 something crowd.
