Best. Martini and Dancing Place in Chicago – I had a blast here the other night. Memorial Day weekend. The staff was on point, drinks were served GREAT. The crowd was 25-35, good, fun, not a bunch of posers. Music was danceable and fun. Not hip hop, not bubblegum.
They had really good people all around. There was plenty of places to sit, drink. From beers to bottles there was something for everyone.
A SPOT FOR EVERYONE – MARTINI PARK IS ONE OF THOSE PLACES THAT IS NOT A TRENDY CLUB WHERE THERE ARE 6 TABLES AND YOU STAND FOR HRS TO GET IN ONLY TO FEEL YOU ARE THE COOLEST BEING ON EARTH. AND YOU DANCE IN THE AISLES TO A D.J.
IT IS A PLACE THAT HAS GREAT SPACE , GOOD MUSIC, CLASS AND GOOD SPACE WITH GREAT DRINKS . MET JOSH THE MANAGER AND HE WAS THE BEST AS WERE ALL THE WAITSTAFF AND B'TENDERS. LOVE HAVING THE BAR IN FRONT OF THE STAGE. ALSO LOVE LIVE BAND AND DANCING.
AND YOU KNOW I FELT COOL AND TRENDY WITHOUT EVEN TRYING!! WILL BE BACK.
ONE MORE THING INNOVATIVE APPETIZERS TO CUSHION THE FABULOUS MARTINIS.
Bad Service, Multiple Credit Card Charges – We just went here last week and it took forever to get a drink. The waitress was very nice but when you're sitting with an empty drink most of the time you're there, it's pretty annoying.
Secondly, my bill was $30. I not only got charged $30, but I also got pending charges of $169 and $27...putting my account in overdraft!!!!!! Who the hell does that....even if you are going to take it off right after that! I've had this happen before but never at this high of an amount and THREE charges!
My husband also got two charges!
This place is lame. Save your money.
Good Food – Great Food. Good Music. Good Times. You can go with friends or go alone and meet new people. The best part is the location and feel good atmosphere.
Thursday is the night – Absolutely love going to Martini Park when the Spazmatics are playing on Thursdays. The dj will also spin remixes of 80's classics. It's great for a girls night out.
Great Atmosphere – Great place to meet and mingle with new people. The live music is amazing. The food is great. Great place to have a birthday party.
My new fave bar! – Finally made it to this bar after hearing rave reviews from friends and it did not disappoint. The stage is actually set behind the bar, and the band was pretty good. The dj was even better!! The drinks were great and the crowd was fun. It did seem like everyone I met was a tourist, so this is obviously not the local-place-down-the-street. I agree with reviewers prior when they say that this has a very Vegas feel :)
Fun fun fun! – I was visiting Chicago and am from Texas. Had such a fabulous time!! Definitely will return next time I'm in town.
Live and In Color! – Martini Park is the place to go if you want a nice, chill yet fun environment where you get some great martinis. It's like an escape from all the stress, yet in a beautiful central area in Downtown Chicago. Whether you go with a group or after work, you will definitely unwind and enjoy yourself especially with the live band etc.
Live band, fun crowd, 80's night every Thursday! – I went to 80's night at Martini Park a few weeks ago, and my friends and I had a lot of fun. There is a live band that did a really good job. The crowd was fun; some people dress up but it is totally optional. A lot of people were dancing, but if you are not into the whole dancing scene you can just sit back, drink, and listen to the band. If you haven't been to Martini Park before you should check it out!
