Houston Press' Description

Under The Volcano, a cozy, eccentric bar in Rice Village, takes its name
from a macabre 1947 novel by Malcolm Lowry. It's a great club for most every occasion, be it a birthday, a first date, or the beginning of the longest night of your life. Don't miss the "steak night" special on
Monday nights, when a 16-ounce USDA Choice rib-eye with tossed salad
and mashed potatoes is a bargain, plus you may be able to spy a few Houston Texans players chowing down.

    Sometimes it seems like there are as many steak nights around Houston as potholes, and they'll all fill your belly up real good. But Under the Volcano gets the nod, because the Bissonnet shrine to Malcolm Lowry's novel (and all things tropicalia) has the good sense to have its steak night on Mondays, and it's always a good idea to start out the week with a good, solid meal....

    They have a really unique choice of drinks that you don't typically see at bars like that. The frozen screw drivers are my fav! It's a cool place. Nice patio in the front and in the back.

Tips from foursquare

  • 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.

    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.

    2010 Best of Houston® Winner: Best Shot: “The Upside-Down Cake” the tropical taste of pineapple washes down neatly with a smooth layer of vanilla and a bright note of grenadine at the very end.

    Great place to take a date on a Monday.

    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.
