Pros: Really good blues music

Blue Martini is a great place to relax and listen to live music and enjoy a good martini. Their martini's are a little pricey but they are delicious. On the weekends it tends to get a little crowded but I would recommend going during the week.

I would give this bar zero stars if i could. The only positive reviews on here are written by management and workers. This place su#ks. The waiter's have no common sense. We have gone in with a party of about 20 and everyone complains

Blue Martini is hit or miss. When you catch it on a slow week night or on a night when they have a great jazz band - the place is fantastic. However - hit it on a weekend when there seem to be 1000 people inside and they're all in their early 20's - forget it.

Pros: Drinks, crowd, ambiance

Cons: a little too noisy

A nice bar to sit and talk with a friend or two. The music is hit or miss, and so is the crowd. Most of the time, you will find the after 5'ers hanging out. The prices are really on the high side. Go there if you are interested in paying for more than what you are getting.

This bar has good idea, but it wouldn't hurt if they invested in a air filter system that pulls out the cig smoke. Check it out for yourself.
