Amazing martinis & cocktails. The Fifth Ammendment is by far my favorite. Great appetizers too. Worth a stop for a drink or two, they always have live music. Really nice atmosphere.

It's almost mind boggling how many martini options there are to choose from here but the good news is that the quality of the drinks is just as plentiful as the overall quantity. My favorite was the Pool Boy, which offers a nice mixture of mango sweetness and pepper heat. As for food, I opted for the Bulldog Bites, which are seasoned steak bites served with crostini pieces and horseradish and they paired wonderfully with everything.

I'm definitely stopping back here when I'm in town again!

Hands down best martinis in Duluth! So many incredible options to choose from that are so different than anywhere else. The lounge has this amazing vintage feel, like you’re going back Old Hollywood, yet has a dark ambiance that is exactly what you would expect in a martini lounge. The appetizers are also incredible. Great for a night out or a quick stop for happy hour during the day. Also, it is located in Downtown Duluth on Superior which is such a fun street, with bars, shops, and art.

We had the blackened steak and special-order martinis. Both very good and our server knew the menu and the ingredients in drinks. A great place for food and drinks.

We dined here during a recent trip, upon the recommendation of someone. The service, drinks and food was superb! My very favorite part was the ambiance (lounge style) and live music. The music was Frank Sinatra era, and SO GOOD!! We sat close to the band, but they were never too loud where we couldn't enjoy conversation. Such a great experience, we will be back! A few tips...this wouldn't be a great place for small children at night. Get their early on the weekends, it fills up fast!
