The Classics

The atmosphere at Vol. 39, from the handsome design of the space to the impeccably crafted cocktails with hand-cut orbs of ice and house-made bitters, is rooted in mid-century elegance. Modern updates to classic drinks, like The Tuxedo or an Old Fashioned made with mezcal, elevate them to something that’s both familiar and refreshingly new.
