Weekly Volcano Review Reviewed by: Nikki Talotta

A place of potions and poisons, perils and passions, the space has incredible atmosphere. A long, softly-curved counter that has held the Manhattans of many is the center of attention. (Built in the ‘30s, the counter is rumored to have hosted the grandfather of American architecture, Frank Lloyd Wright.)

Complementing the counter is a series of booths and custom wood tables carved from 500-year-old fir.  Skilled hands created tables in a shape not unlike a shield, the corners curved in layered lines, inviting you to trace their shape in the ambiance of red lighting and candles. The jukebox, a ‘40s-style replica, glows gently against a wall. The music alone will be worth checking out. The eclectic mix will be unlike any in Oly, say owners. Big, round mirrors against dark walls, a huge iron table and a crouching, winged statue add to the aesthetics.

The booze, beer and prices are roughly the same as most bars downtown, with a few specialty items, such as absinthe and other hand-crafted liquors.
