Our family wandered over to Martinis for after dinner drinks. I was immediately turned off by the $5 cover, especially since we were going to sit inside. The bar scene inside was busy but not packed. We took seats on couches in a nook and...More

A former railway station transformed into a bar. Looks great. They had a band playing outside on the weekend. Friendly service. Good selection of drinks. Well worth a visit.

Martinis is located within an old train station. The bar itself is absolutely stunning. Extensive martini list however the martinis are not made with the premium spirits listed on the menu. Nice outdoor patio. I will return when visiting Peoria.

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

A friend and I were picking songs on the jukebox and the owner grabbed our arms to move us out of his way to pick different songs and stated "I'm the owner of this bar and we aren't listening to this crap". He froze the...More

I come in all the time. Great drinks, good atmosphere, even BETTER atmosphere on their off nights! As a hotel employee we recommend Martinis more often then not. TIP: If you are unsure what you like, (and it's an off-night) let the bartender know and...More
