It's on my walk home from the subway. People were eating in the window eating. It's probably because I was chilled to the bone but the pasta dishes they were eating looked particularly good. Don't ever remember it being papered up or dark.
They were still tweeting away today. The photo of tonight's taps/cask list was posted a few hours ago and it looks mighty tasty. In terms of your rumour it's likely someone just mixed up Volo with another bar or restaurant.
