When craving a real nook of a bar to escape from the madding crowd, it doesn’t get much cozier than the Backroom Bar in Regency Court. The space is wee but the bar is impressive and the chairs are crazy comfortable.

There are many great reasons to stop by the Backroom Bar. First of all, it has a happy “hour” every day that runs from 4-7 p.m. Secondly, you’ll find the charming Fede Johnson, master of the bar, often working in residence; and thirdly, he serves Caybrew products on tap.

There’s nothing like an ice cold pint of Caybrew or White Tip when you’re winding down after a long day at work, particularly when in a place like this. The design and décor make you feel like you’re a world away.

Speaking of décor, we’re really curious about the nutcracker standing in the corner. Why is he there and what has he got to do with the bar? ‘tis a mystery.

Fede has worked at Backroom Bar since leaving London nine months ago. Originally from Spain, his personality fits the lounge perfectly. He can also sell you one of your favorite cigars if you so desire.

The bar does not sell the bottled Caybrew products, but it doesn’t get much more environmentally friendly than draft beer. No containers to recycle!

Those bars that do sell Caybrew bottled beers are encouraged to sign up for the brewery’s reuse-and-recycle program. Used bottles are crated and picked up by the brewery to be cleaned, sanitized and reused, keeping them off the landfill.

The next time you are driving along West Bay Road and you fancy a drink and a break, swing by the Backroom Bar in Regency Court. It’s like your own private club.
