Now that the South Lamar Boulevard cocktail bar Backbeat has been in business for more than a month, co-owners Michael and Jessica Sanders are ready to introduce fun happy hour specials that will make their bar the place to hang out after work.

Like sister bar Drink.Well, Backbeat offers well-made cocktails and food, some of which will be on special during happy hour.
