The Backyard on Thirteenth
Opened on February 14, 2020, The Backyard on Thirteenth is a family and dog-friendly gathering space located in beautiful downtown Paso Robles where families, friends, and neighbors can commune in a casual open-air setting while enjoying a wide selection of rotating taps showcasing local craft beers, wine & cider, great food, games, and music. Located on the corner of 13th & Railroad Street, The Backyard is short walking distance from the city park, vacation rentals, hotels, restaurants, tasting rooms, breweries and many other local businesses making it a popular destination for both locals and visitors.
Inspiration is drawn from traditional Bavarian-style neighborhood beer gardens (from the German 'Biergarten'), which are outdoor taverns or designated areas where beer and local food are enjoyed in a cozy, friendly atmosphere. Reflecting a modern interpretation, The Backyard's design uses repurposed shipping containers providing a contemporary urban look and feel that embodies the spirit of the adjacent railroad. This unique outdoor venue capitalizes on the Central Coast’s amazing weather, and is unlike any other place you’ll find in SLO County.
