It's summer. It's Florida. You're part of a shopping mall....and no shorts after 5:00 pm. Are you kidding? That is ridiculous!!! I could understand after 8 pm, but 5 pm?? You MUST be losing a lot of business because of this. Get real.

I've visited the Blue Martini's in Orlando, Ft. Lauderdale, but I most often frequent the Tampa location. Being located in the International Mall and very close to the Airport makes it a great location. As with all of the Blue's the atmosphere is very nice and relaxed. The service is fantastic and the Martini's are truly the best around! The... More

The band was okay, In house DJ was good and played various music which includes Trance then came the DJ after Midnight he screwed up everything. I believe he is the same DJ Blue Martini has contract with him for Saturday nights. This guy is terrible. No wonder Blue Martini has contract with him. His music is outdated, in out... More

I was in Tampa for a meeting and met up with a couple of friends for drinks and appetizers at the Blue Martini in International Plaza. International Plaza has a host of restaurants and a large Mall. What a cool place to have lunch or dinner. You have the choice of inside or outside seating. The restaurant is on the... More

If you want to stay in one place to experience a good evening this is it. Started off "people watching" on the outdoor patio. BM is strategically positioned to watch the ingress & egress of people visiting International mall (cool move BM) The chocolate martini with a coconut rim was crazy good, like eating a dessert while getting toasted. Friendly... More

This used to be the place to go when you arrived in Tampa. We went on a Saturday night and the DJ was horrible! Although the drinks were good and it was a nice crowd, you couldn't help but notice the lack of DJ skills. There is a cover charge and you must be dressed to impress :)

Very mature grown and sexy atmosphere. Not a teen hangout, a variety of ages 25 and up. Music great, food outstanding, service very good. The crowd is definitely in the house. I can only imagine what it's like in the spring or summertime. I really enjoyed the complete package. Take my word for it, you want a nice night out... More
