The recently opened Red Martini is not your typical bar or club. This elegant lounge showcases a modest dance floor that complements but doesn’t dominate the space, which features plenty of comfortable and casual seating near the bar. Chef Gabriel Panama offers up fresh, creative sushi each evening, such as the lounge’s namesake Red Martini Roll, with tempura ahi tuna, red snapper, crab, halibut, cream cheese and roasted peppers. If sushi’s not your thing, other small dishes hold their own: try a cucumber and mozzarella salad or a charcuterie plate. And don’t miss their Thursday night “Maki and Martini” specials that, in addition to great food and drinks, include the DJ spinning favorite hits for an all-around fun night.
