Farewell Favorites: Backflip

Backflip, 601 Eddy Street. Courtesy photo.
Located in the City's rock hotel, the Tenderloin's Phoenix, Backflip was one of the hippest bars in town during the dot com boom and into the new Millennium. Everything was cool at Backflip - the drinks, the staff, the music, and most of all the atmo. The beautifully glowing blue hues and shades of the club's decor helped make the place a draw for enthusiasts of sophisticated cocktail culture, as did its great dinner menu and outdoor access. In December, 2002, Backflip bellyflopped.
