Service was slow, the fryer was on the blink so we couldn't order anything fried, and was overcharged for my drink. Atmosphere is dark and cold. Food was so-so. We were referred here by the host at their sister restaurant, Fat Cats, and was told they" had basically the same food." I don't think that was the case, though. The diners at Fat Cats were well dressed patrons with reservations, versus a young drinking crowd at the Lava Lounge.

Stopped here for drinks and appetizers...the lumpia and the hummus was good. Did not like my cocktail, but the bartender quickly replaced it when I asked. I prefer a quieter more reserved atmosphere.

The Lava Lounge is a nice, small bar in the Tremont neighborhood. As a visitor from the East Coast, we have a lot of these places around that's sort of dive-y with weird "art" on red walls. Not your typical old fashioned Midwest bar. We went with our Cleveland friends on a weekend night and left before the DJ set up and the door guy started charging covers. If you don't like it loud or crowded, that may be the best time to go if you plan on checking it out. They do have a decent drink list and small food menu.
