Whether its claim of being the area's first martini bar lounge is true or not, this bar does take its martinis (and other cocktails) seriously. The focus is fresh and local ingredients for all its cocktails. Around since the 1940s, the bar has a stage featuring living entertainment in the back. Watching the burlesque and comedy shows will incur a small cover charge, but if you just want to drink in the front room, it's free. Don't be surprised by all the well-coiffed young people hanging about.
