about the spacE


The porch lights are twinkling. The moon is full. The big game is on. Cold beer and signature margaritas are served while your crazy uncle flips burgers in a smoky haze…


We love a good Backyard party, and tried to create this experience with our cozy, approachable space. With a rustic hand-built design, 10 big screens and projector, 14 taps, table and board games, and weekly events, Backyard is a place friends and family gather to eat, drink, and play. Our menu is sourced locally, made in-house, and — when it comes to our barbecue — smoked to perfection.


Located behind Rookies, Backyard is its sister bar, offering a more grownup hangout in the heart of Columbia City. Tucked away, Backyard is one of the area’s best-kept secrets.


Come for the grub, stay for the good vibes. At Backyard, there’s a little something for everyone.
