Weekly Volcano Review Reviewed by: Ron Swarner

This downtown Tacoma "Whisky Bar" carryies more than 50 whiskeys from around the world.

Roger Rahill and business partner Jon Tartaglia (Varsity Grill, The Loft, 21 Commerce) want to make it clear that while the 6000 square foot venue does have a country feel to it with a whisky barrel wall, a true hardwood dance floor, a mounted moose head, staff donning cowboy hats and skimpy jean shorts - plus General Manager Paul Muller came from McCabe's American Music Café - they will play a mix of country and rock via music videos and DJs.

Free dance lessons every Thursday beginning at 7:30 p.m. DJs mix country and rock videos Thursday-Saturday nights.

This place was a disgrace to country music!!!! The majority of the music was 80 hairband rock and early 90s country. Nobody knows how to two step and the bouncers dont like it when you order shots for people who are from Texas

We were going to go in the Big whiskey bar last night. They would not let my 31 year old nephew ( who is here on vacation from Germany ) in just because he had a German Passport. Are you guys for real????? Unbelievable! He is an Officer in the German Navy and is traveling alot around the world, but that was a first for him. Really got something to talk about when he gets back home.
