The Back Room can be a cool place to hang out...but you shouldn't go there if you don't want to hear really loud music. It's not the place for conversation...it's a place to rock out to metal music, typically.

The back room is one of the only places left in Austin that embraces the Heavy Metal scene. Whether it be local bands or national acts the Back Room is the ultimate place for your favorite heavy metal acts.

The Back Room isn't in the nicest area. I don't think I've ever been there where there hasn't been a fight. The music is loud and the beer is cheap. The stage is well laid out. I'm sure the acoustics are good if they could just find the volume knob and turn it down a little. There are a couple of tables in the stage area so you can make a leisurely night of it. When you're bored with the music, you can play pool on the other side of the club (completely different room, completely different atmosphere).

There is usually a wide variety of ages so you don't have to feel like the oldest (or youngest) in the building. The wait staff is limited but the bartenders are great (so it's worth it to just get up and go to the bar yourself).

Warning - the parking lot is scary. Seriously, at least one fight everytime I've gone. I won't walk to the car by myself. Somehow it feels much safer inside.

PROS: Great place to listen to hard music, cheap beer, comfortable
CONS: Many fights outsides, can be a little scary
