About the venue: When you set foot inside Vol. 39, you might feel as though you’re stepping into a decadent cocktail bar from a bygone era. Bound vintage law books and tufted leather couches are balanced by delicate details like intricate glassware and hanging lamps crafted from cut crystal decanters. It all makes for an intriguing atmosphere that feels grounded in history, but with a hint of something new to be discovered.
