Aside from being simply the best coffee house in the region, Backspace is also Portland's premier music venue for all ages shows. We merge art, music, technology, and excellence in food and beverage into a thriving community of people that you want to meet. Poised in the center of Old Town, off of the MAX Green and Yellow lines, Backspace was constructed to be the ultimate Third Space. Hone your micro, play pool with friends, hear an amazing local band, discover our delicious menu, or just hang out with friends over beers and board games. If you have not visited Backspace before, you will be impressed by our professionalism, our distinctiveness, and the depth of our community.
