Came here V Day night during our trip to Tampa 2015. This was a very busy place but we still managed to get drinks. Everyone was dressed appropriately for the most part and the music was mixed which was perfect. They had warmers outside (inside was just too crowded) and it wasn't too loud so we... read more

Happy hour here is definitely the place to be. Great service, food is good and the martinis are perfect. Would highly recommend a stop here.

This place is a joke! They turned my wife and I away because we had sandals on !! There are women entering with skirts on that we're borderline obscene! They said they have strict standards,ha. Don't bother, very scusey!! Ended up at Tuscan Brio Grill next door, and it was amazing !

This is the place people go to see and be seen - so it can be a bit pretentious at times. However if you go in the afternoon early evening before it gets too crowded it's perfect. Half Price martinis during happy hour (a good deal when the martinis are $15!), food specials, you can sit outside and enjoy a... More

My wife and I stayed at the hotel on the Mall for one of her business trips last month. There were several of us that went out for drinks after the dinner on Friday night and decided to go here. We arrived at 9:00pm (dress code, no shorts or t-shirts) and it was filling up. We got a great table... More

Located inside the International Mall, right next to the Renaissance Hotel. Band was excellent, DJ popping, did pay a $40.00 cover charge though

Tampa is a second home for me and anytime I'm in town I have to visit Blue Martini near the international mall. This is my first review of the place however. My husband and I always spend New Years with our daughters at our vacation home in Tampa we decided to get out Saturday night and of course only one... More

My boyfriend and I went on a Friday night. Cover was $10, but with10 minutes, a great band started. My boyfriend doesn't even like most live music, but he liked them. Drinks were pricey, but strong enough to make it worth it. The crowd was eclectic, with demographic of all ages and ethnicities. Great place for dancing, people watching, or... More

After 1 drink (that I purchased) and standing Ina single spot, never leaving my drink. My only memory is drinking my drink and waking up in the ER with a open leg fracture (broken leg), multiple facial fracture (underwent a 9 hr facial reconstruction), and a collapsed lung. I am confident it was the BARTENDER! There have been multiple accusations... More

Great happy, great service, and great food/drinks. Whether you're visiting from out of town or a local, this is a must on any night of the week. They have live bands or sports on the huge selection of televisions. This is an outdoor/indoor set up so there is cigar smoking which is sometimes unnoticeable.
