Backstreet Cafe has been a part of Houstonians’ celebrations for more than three decades. Our restaurant is an ideal place for celebratory brunches, seated dinner, business luncheons and holiday gatherings, or let us bring the party to your home, office or event space with our off site catering.
To start planning your party, please contact Joshua McDonald at Joshua@backstreetcafe.net, or call Monday - Friday 8am to 5pm at (713)521-2239 to schedule a tour of the restaurant and private rooms and discuss further plans for your party. You can also fill out the inquiry form below. We look forward to hearing from you!
For private parties, Backstreet offers two intimate upstairs rooms, each with a fireplace and a seating capacity of 35 guests. Both upstairs rooms may be used in conjunction for parties of approximately 75 guests. The Solarium, overlooking Backstreet's patio, can accommodate approximately 35 guests. Our bar area is available for happy hour parties between the hours of 4 – 6 pm.
We have several sample menus to choose from (see sample menus below), or we can customize a special menu for your party. It is important that you submit your menu as soon as possible so the chef can place any special orders your event may require.
Backstreet can provide full beverage service for your gathering. Our regular mixed drink prices range from $5.50 to $12 per cocktail, with special premium beverages also available. The bar manager will need your wine selection (if applicable) one week prior to your event to ensure delivery.
Our experienced staff will extend courteous, professional service to your guests. Service fees are covered by a 20% gratuity added to the total bill. Some special events requiring more service personnel may necessitate an additional service fee.
We offer off-site caterings in which we provide the staffing, food and any non-food items that you may need. Due to TABC policy, we are not able to provide liquor, beer or wine. However, we can provide the mixes, garnishes, glassware and bartenders to serve your alcohol drinks.
We can arrange for flowers, linens, live music or banners for your party. If you require a podium, projector, screen or other business-related item, we can make the arrangements for you.
In order to reserve a private room for your party, Backstreet may require a deposit for half the food portion of your bill. Deposits are fully refundable up to one week prior to the date of your reservation, with the exception of Christmas parties, which are non-refundable. We will need a guaranteed number of guests three business days prior to the event so that we can order and prepare.
