The walls of the Lava Java Cafe are painted red as if you're inside a volcano and the booths are jet black. The contrast in colors offers a sense of eye-catching coolness that make you want to unbutton the top button. The Lava Java Cafe is a hookah bar, an espresso bar, a restaurant, and hangout. And, most nights, by 9 pm that place is, at the very least, half full, not half empty. Entertainment on Friday and Saturday evenings.
