Under the Volcano owners Pete and Vera Mitchell have revitalized this small Midtown drinkery while maintaining its cozy, dim feel. The alley-like corridor along the main bar still gives way to two ornate back rooms, but gone are the ancient piano and the wall-mounted jukebox. Instead, the Mitchells have collected more than 600 LPs for the staff to spin on twin turntables behind the bar. Local music figures routinely host DJ nights, spinning from the bar's library and their own wax. Leon's rotating drink menu features inventive cocktails like the Green on Red, a rum concoction garnished with red pepper and basil, and Volcano carryovers such as the Whiskey Smash.
