Fantastic venue to have a celebration of any kind or size - An Eventective User

Surprise birthday party. The owner and manager were so pleasant and incredibly helpful. The staff assigned to the party were available at all times, helpful, polite and always smiling. The food was delicious and kept full so there was no time where food was not available. The popcorn we had as a snack food was so outstanding, some people were asking how to get more. They even cut out cake and plated it for us. The layout for our party excellent. The mixture of sitting areas and tables and bar was a great mix for the attendees. The large screen to show a powerpoint was a big hit and a microphone was perfect. I would use this place again in a minute and am recommending them to any one thinking of having a party. The owner even assisted in getting the birthday person to the room without him even suspecting it was a party. The stunned look on his face was classic. O'Tooles is a great venue to have a party and the popcorn we had as a snack food was so outstanding, some people were asking how to get more.

Backroom Experience - An Eventective User from Schenectady, NY

Just attended our office Christmas party at the Backroom. Not only was this place beautiful but the staff was on top of everything! I wish I did go for the premium bar package to have a better scotch but besides that our office will be booking next year.

From the first contact with the venue and throughout, it was a great experience. They answered all of my questions and worked within my budget. The room is really a nice space and the food was excellent. The staff very helpful, friendly and efficient. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Backroom.
