Party Earth Back Up Review

The Scene

Coeds in the mood for some serious partying won't want to miss Back Up, a rowdy mess of drunken revelry and meat-market mingling.

Coeds in the mood for some serious partying won’t want to miss Back Up, a rowdy mess of drunken revelry and meat-market mingling.

The vast purple room, which features flashing green lasers, clusters of glittering disco balls, and an immense dance floor, swarms with preppy boys and party girls getting down to the DJ’s mix of Michael Jackson and Katy Perry, while bachelorette partiers set up camp on plush black chairs by the bar, all the better to order another bottle of champagne and check out the rugby lads pounding beers in the nearby smoking room.

As the night wears on and the fog machine goes into overtime, tipsy girlfriends and jocks get a little closer on the dance floor to show off their best moves and smile for the camera as the in-house photographer documents the gyrating sweaty singles.

Frenetic and flirty, Back Up is a fun spot for hooking up with pals, scoring some numbers, and partying all night long – no backup plan required.

Tip from Emma:

On some theme nights, they hand out neon glow sticks to indicate your relationship status – green means you’re single, red you’re taken, and blue that you’re up for anything. It can be a fun way to spice up the evening!

Back Up User Reviews

Average rating:
Go only there's a special event
Priscilla G. Dec 7, 2012
The Back Up can be a good spot to party if there's a special event being organized there. There's a large dancefloor and bar, even a spot where people can smoke without having to go outside when the temperature drops. Otherwise, this club is not what it used to be. Expect long lines at the (expensive) coat check, a very young crowd and repetitive music. Furthermore, the bouncers can get easily annoyed so it's best to not grab their attention in any way: don't forget to bring ID.
