  • Far more hospitable than actually being under a volcano, which is good, because I always found it incredibly inconvenient to try to drink a beer with a fire proximity suit on.
  • Great place to take a date on a Monday.
  • Houstons humidity will make you do nothing. Heres the best bar to do it. Sit outsidetheres a roof over the outdoor seatingand order an iced screwdriver. Youll never go back to ice cream.
  • frozen screwdrivers are famous, but also try the frozen cuba libre ;)
  • Try the frozen screwdriver (or frozen cuba livre, if you're a guy), then try the mojito (awesome), then the bloody mary, (like a meal), then the strawberry-basil margarita, (unusual but good).
  • The Singapore Sling is excellent here. Be careful not to shit your pants in the short time betwixt finishing your third and ordering your fourth.
  • Steak Night every Monday at 6 PM to 10 PM is great. It includes tossed salad with sesame raspberry vinagrette. 16 oz Rib Eye or Strip with garlic mashed potatoes and flan for dessert.
  • Not actually dog friendly. Bring your own water. Instructed that owner doesn't allow servers to provide water for dogs because they might pee on patio.
  • The best frozen Screwdrivers, EVER! Be careful, they're potent! The line to the bar is a bit long and, yes, they do need more bartenders on Friday nights.
  • Need to get more bar tenders for a friday night
  • Mojitos are fantastic! Frozen screwdriver is pretty good too!
  • Get away from the mobs of the Village Arcade at this eccentric dive, where you can get $1 off mixed drinks and daily beer and food specials during their all day happy hour.
  • Under The Volcano, a cozy, eccentric bar in Rice Village, takes its name from a macabre 1947 novel by Malcolm Lowry.
  • Best frozen screwdrivers
  • This place has been pretty dead lately :(
  • Great roast beef sandwich. Simple but good.
  • Drinks are great but juke box selections are terrible. No new kids on the block? Terrible
  • Try staying on the patio. Inside is too crowded and noisy, you have to scream to have a conversation.
  • love the chimichurri sauce they serve with their steak but i don't like the fact that you HAVE to order a drink when ordering on Steak Night. sometimes i do just want water...
  • Try the whiskey sour! It's awesome!
