The drinks are very pricey, even for a bar, but the atmosphere is really cool. It looks like an old converted train station.

Martini's is really a 3.5 out of 4, but it doesn't quite earn that 4th star. They have some very good drinks, but they also have some very bad drinks. Some martinis are acquired tastes probably. It's a very expensive bar, so you should only...More

We were not let into the bar because two members of our party had vertical IDs and one was from out of state. Everyone was over 21 and he talked down to us for several minutes before we decided to take our business elsewhere.

Stopped by for drinks. Good and strong mixers. Good live band and lots of beautiful women. Inside and outside areas for plenty of room.
