The first thing you notice upon entering Marty's is how small the space is. No worries, though, as the martinis definitely make up for the squeeze. You can choose to either belly up to the (very big) bar which dominates the room, or claim stake to one of the small tables. When warmer weather permits, you also have the option of grabbing a table on the patio out front. Martinis of many colors and flavors are on the menu. Whether you emulate James Bond (shaken, not stirred) or are in the mood for something a little more frou frou (read: chocolate and delicious), you'll find the martini to fit your tastes on the menu. If you somehow don't find what you're looking for, be sure to ask the friendly bartender for a recommendation—they might just make a drink especially for you! The drinks at Marty's don't come cheap, but given the generous pour (and potent mixes), one cocktail will often suffice. For those who arrive without a penchant for martinis, there are also a number of wines and beers on offer as well.
