When you're throwing an event, it's all about pleasing your crowd -- with an attractive space, professional service, and delicious food and drink to keep everyone happy. What could be more crowd-pleasing than tacos -- and, for the imbibers in the group, plenty of tequila, too?  

Volcano Rabbit, in San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter, is actually named for a real animal -- a Mexican rabbit that's one of the smallest in the world. But, for our purposes, it's most notable for its sophisticated modern Mexican cuisine. Tacos are, without a question, the star. Don't expect the traditional carnitas and al pastor; everything at Volcano Rabbit is a little distinctive. Short rib tacos are adorned with pickled onion and carrot, daikon radish, peanut and cucumber; fried fish, a must in San Diego, comes with a lime crema and an avocado spear. Even the expected tacos get a special touch: Carne asada, served on a flour tortilla, is topped with a black garlic aioli, queso a la plancha, and fried yam and onion. 


And we mentioned tequila, right? With the largest tequila selection downtown, Volcano Rabbit excels at agave. Whether you're after a straightforward margarita, a clever cocktail, or a tequila or mezcal tasting flight, there are any number of ways to imbibe. 

The attractive, urban-chic space can accommodate a wide range of groups. Seat thirty guests in a private dining room; host a group on Volcano Rabbit's outdoor patio, right on 5th Avenue; or throw a larger event, with a seated group of up to 90 guests or 250 at a standing reception.
What's more, Volcano Rabbit is part of the RMD Group, with other restaurants including Rustic Root and Side Bar. So if you're looking to put on a truly ambitious event -- perhaps at multiple venues, with a bit of a block party feel? -- that's an option, too.
