Bad customer service

Very very unhappy with a service. The entrance charge was $30 per person, however on the website it says $20-$25. The band was great, however I didn't understand why the band was keeping asking for tip when we already paid $30 for coming in and also there is a requirement to buy a minimum 2 drinks per person? Oh well, the best part was when we received the bill - a total for entrance cover, drinks, and tip. We were ... view more

Avoid at ALL costs!

We were visiting from Ohio to the Taste of Chicago and I would NOT recommend The Back Room to anyone visiting Chicago. We were charged a $25 per person entrance fee (others were charged $30, others less than $25). The drinks were EXTREMELY pricey, a cup of coffee, $5 and a coke, $5 - other alcoholic drinks ranged from $12 - $15. Upon entering we were only told that there was a 2 drink minimum - not 2 drink per set... view more

My first time there was about three weeks ago, I went there through word of moouth. A quartet called the Charlie Johnson quartet was playing there.

Great Atmosphere but

During the winter went there to see an artist, made reservations. The artist cancelled that day. We didn't find out until we arrived from the western suburbs, and didn't have a second plan. Complained to the manager, and we were told that cover would be waived since we didn't know what to expect from the band. We were pleasantly surprised, the band was great. When it came to to close out our bill, the manager renigge... view more
