Backstreets is one of Clemson's bars, founded in 1992, located on top of and "behind" Overtime. Convenient since they are both owned by the same person. The interior of Backstreets is decorated with items that befit an antiques shop, including a cigar store Indian. Check out the stained glass windows, including a Grateful Dead "Steal Your Face", done by Pete Matsko, the proprietor! All other the stained glass windows have been built on the premises by artist-in-residence Emily Fazio and her students.

As a matter of usual choice, Backstreets has 12 beers on tap, and roughly sixty brands to choose from, including bottled product.

Tuesday nights are packed due to the specials which start at 4 pm and go until 8 pm.

They have a full kitchen which is open from 4 p.m to 11:30 p.m. The menu offers appetizers, wings, eight types of pizza, or you can design your own from 17 ingredients. A single-topping 'za runs $9 with most additional toppings running 75 cents, Feta cheese, pulled chicken and bacon are $2. Pizzas cost between $9.75 and $11.75. Calzones run about $7.75. Also offered are sandwiches, grilled wraps, "Big Ass Burgers", hot sandwiches and subs, as well as salads.

In the spring of 2011, Backstreets will begin opening for lunch.

In 2014; the owners and managers of Backstreets compared those who choose to exercise their second amendment rights to defend themselves to "Losers" and "Douchebags". Well, that is their first amendment right, but they should suffer the consequences for their insults. Reminds me of Jim Crow days.


  • $6.50 Liquor Drinks
  • $2.50 Domestic Pitchers
  • $3.50 Large One Topping Pizza
  • $1.00 PBR most of the time

Come early or expect a long wait for your pizza.

Live music is featured from time to time.

In the 1970s, this was the location of Lawrence Cleaners, a dry-cleaning business, and then The Filling Station.
