Rolling Out An Every Day Happy Hour At Bar Volver
Over the past couple years, Bar Volver has been refining the experience of eating and drinking at this kind of antechamber to Volver proper. It has always been the easier and more approachable of the two rooms–a place to just drop by for drinks, a snack, whatever. In the beginning, the menu was seriously limited (caviar, a handful of tartines), and the focus was on champagne. Then it became cocktails and snacks, with a guest bartender program on Wednesdays and a menu that slowly grew over the seasons.
But now, things have changed again.
Starting immediately, Bar Volver is offering Happy Hour every night from 5-7pm. And happy hour here is a good deal–we’re talking $8 signature cocktails, $5 beers, and select bar snacks (like the paella maki roll or the tuna tartare) for half-off.
The cheese and charcuterie lists are well-curated, and some of the snacks being offered on the bar menu (looking at you corn croquettes and shrimp toasts) are as god as anything served on the other side of the doors. Plus, for those of you who are still mourning the loss of the lamb burger at Avance, this is the closest you’re going to get to finding one–a lamb burger with red onion marmalade and harissa aioli designed by ex Avance exec Justin Bogle, who is now chef de cuisine for the Garces restaurant group.
