The Backyard Bar in downtown West Palm Beach ranks high for its location and concept, but when it comes to execution, this wine and tapas bar falls short. Behind the Hibiscus Hotel, the outdoor space is set up like an eclectic South Florida backyard, with wrought-iron tables and chairs spaced among tall palm trees atop a deck of concrete pavers and gravel. Lanterns, a fire pit, and lights strung overheard add a romantic, laid-back ambiance at night, while regular live music keeps the energy fun and fresh. As for service and expertise on menu items, don't expect as much from the Backyard Bar. Long wait times and subpar tapas offerings take away from the atmosphere of this potentially poppin' neighborhood spot.
