It's in a shopping mall eight minutes from the Strip (by taxi), but we won't hold that against the Blue Martini, because it's still pretty cool. The cream of local bands plays here nightly, an attractive blue interior curves from room to room, and the cocktail menu is impressive (the signature martinis are served in the shaker). Also, there's a legendary happy hour from 4 to 8 p.m. daily. Best of all, hordes of the kind of people you'll want to meet (that is, sexy non-tourists
of both genders) keep pouring in.
