Description: Blue Martini is trendy upscale lounge with a warm, welcoming environment that is designed to be enjoyable for all of our guests. We feature the best in Live Entertainment nightly. We are known for offering over 42 mouth-watering signature Martinis, specialty cocktails, fine wines & spirits, and delicious sharable bites. Blue Martini is a hot spot for professionals who desire after-work cocktails at our legendary 'Happy Hour' when we offer incredible discounts on our entire menu. The relaxed happy hour vibe smoothly changes as the live bands stimulate our guests to dance and enjoy the popular songs of favorite artists. The late 'nightlife' at Blue Martini is unsurpassed and we consistently pack all 3 of our unique bar experiences with a high energy, fun loving crowd. Go casual on our patio**, be in front of the entertainment by our stage, or go exclusive in our VIP lounge. We offer an exceptional catering menu for private parties and we host all types of unique events throughout the year. There is always 'Something new at Blue!' At Blue Martini, we take great pride in offering only the best service to our guests. This is why we refer to them 'guests' and not 'customers'. We consider ourselves are experts in the hospitality industry and make sure every guest becomes a raving fan of their Blue Martini experience. From the moment you walk through the door to the moment you leave, we want you to be completely satisfied. In other words, we hope you leave in a way better mood than when you stepped inside.

We went to the happy hour which is from 3-7 pm. I had the Bellini cocktail which was delicious. If you ask before you order a martini they give ladies a card so the first drink is free. All the martinis are half price during happy hour...about $6. We ordered the following appetizers for 4 people: 2 seared tunas, Tai chicken, pesto chicken, mushroom flat bread, pepperoni flat bread. All were very good. We also had the chocolate cake and apple tart with ice cream. Both were generous portions and very delicious. The prices were "reduced" but they seemed about right for the quantities of food and drinks. I think $6 is the correct price for a martini, $12 is outrageous. We ate in the outside area because no one was inside. It was a little chilly outside but for some reason they would not turn on the electric heaters.

We have only eaten here for dinner probably once as most of our visits are for happy hour which they have every day from 4 pm till 8 pm. What's even better than that, well you can sign up for their VIP club and their martinis which sell between 12.5 and 14.5 are half off during those hours BUT ladies get their first drink FREE by being a member of the VIP club. Love this!! The waitresses and waiters are top notch. Also the appetizers they have are great. They did take away one of our favorites, the crab meat dip which we loved--bring it back please :D Love the outdoor seating. Very comfortable and in a very nice location==City North.

This lounge is located just north of the 101, east of Desert Ridge shopping complex, in City North. We found patrons to be quite age diverse. It was crowded at 5pm on a Friday but service was prompt and courteous. Plentiful seating inside and out. Amusing people-watching. Boisterous on the patio. Ahi tuna appetizers, beef medallions and flatbreads are good choices to accompany beverages. Live music began when happy hour closed out.

We have been here a number of times and have a favorable opinion of this place during happy hour. Food specials are ok and martinis pretty good. On May 28 we met friends for a drink and to plan dinner. When we got out of our car a block away the music was loud. When we found a table as far as possible from the music, conversation had to be carried out by shouting at each other. Even though service was ok and drinks good, we left as soon as possible. I suppose music attracts customers but it drove us away. Less volume would have greatly improved the experience.

I have been to this spot several times and it is always a great time. If you like Martini's it is perfect, but if not there is plenty more drinks to choose from. I tried a few appetizers and those were pretty tasty as well from what I remember.
Make sure to take change with you to the restroom. A friendly lady keeps it clean, offers you a towel, and sells her jewelry.
Go early as it can get crowded later in the night... There is often live music and great people watching!
