Reviews for Backspace


Whether you're needing a place to work for the afternoon, meeting a friend for coffee or lunch or enjoying one of their many evenings of entertainment: poetry slam, music or art; it's hard to find a more appealing and friendlier space.


Gallery and coffee shop by day, and bar by night. Many 18+ shows and events bring a vibrant and youthful crowd through its doors.


Part bar, part venue, part cafe, part art gallery Backspace triumphs with all ages shows that don't separate the big kids from the little kids. A great resource if you just arrive in town.


Truly all things to all people. Great (Stumptown) coffee, great veg-friendly menu, great laid-back ambience, great all-ages shows & events, great wifi... It’s also an art gallery and online gaming hub.

over a year ago

Video GaGa – This place is such a refreshing alternative to the bar scene. With LAN computer gaming, old school arcade games (love the JOUST!), pool tables, and a killer x-box room this place has a lot to keep you entertained. This place is soooo cool and has the best coffee (stumptown). Ahhh yeah. open late!

check it out.

gawd...oh yeah and free wi fi
