Fodor's Review

Named for the Volstead Act, which instituted Prohibition back in the '20s, this subterranean bastion of cool is simply indispensable. In a tasteful setting that features just the right mix of mirrors, chandeliers, polished wood, and velvet wallpaper, a friendly staff and an ace barkeep serve up specialties like jalapeno margaritas and strawberry caipiroskas.
