Like a box of fine china or a man covered in ants, cocktails just beg to be shaken. Stir up the nightlife with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Southern fare and drinks at the Bigg Blue Martini.
Bigg Blue Martini pleases palates with more than 20 specialty martinis, beers from Lexington Brewing Company, and a menu of regional and seasonal favorites served daily until midnight. The extensive list of liquid libations boasts original martinis such as the Old Bigg Blue, made with Kentucky’s Pure Blue vodka, blue island pucker, blue curaçao, and orange juice ($9); and the Bourbon Ball, a sweet blend of Marker’s 46, Godiva dark chocolate, and Frangelico ($9). Start ingestion sessions with Chef Winslow’s four-cheese pimento dip, a creamy blend of smoked gouda, white and sharp cheddar, and parmesan cheeses ($7), before moving onto a state specialty, the Kentucky Hot Brown, a sandwich piled high with turkey, ham, bacon, and tomatoes and blanketed with a creamy cheese sauce ($14). The masterful culinarians rely on fresh, local ingredients to bolster meals, steaming the Bigg Blue mussels in Kentucky Pale Ale ($8), slathering Kentucky-bourbon barbecue sauce on the beef-brisket sandwich ($10), or sprinkling deep-fried bluegrass on everything.
Nestled inside the Hilton Lexington downtown, Bigg Blue Martini is within walking distance of Rupp Arena and Triangle Park. A sophisticated sampling of live music treats patrons to dulcet tunes every Friday and Saturday night, and patio dwellers can revel in the harmonious sounds of summer, such as soothing breezes, chirping crickets, and the gentle sobbing of neglected snow skis.
