To tuxedoed people, velvet ropes are ordinary white-picket fences and champagne fountains are lawn sprinklers. Kick down the fence and drink from the sprinkler with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of drinks and martinis at The Godfather Cigar & Martini Lounge in Rochester Hills.
Though renowned for its vast humidors of primo cigars, The Godfather Cigar & Martini Lounge’s professional bartenders also pour elegant, tasty martinis and one-of-a-kind house drinks that mirror the atmospheric "power broker's clubhouse" vibe. Sink into a plush leather couch in the Lamborghini Room or its softly lit cousin, the Don Room, and savor the alcoholic alchemy of The Gotti—a blend of Ketel One and olive juice garnished with blue-cheese olives and jalapeño ($9). The Godfather's mélange of Glenlivet, Cointreau, and blood-orange bitters will remind film buffs of the way oranges always presaged a lavish musical number in The Godfather films ($11). The coconut martini brings back happy memories of unplanned desert-island vacations with its coconut-rimmed pool of coconut rum, RumChata, coconut water, and lime ($9). And for those celebrating a friend's birthday, the peach bellini renders its peach nectar more toastable with an effervescent topper of champagne ($9).
The Godfather Cigar & Martini Lounge evokes a relaxing, upscale aura with its dark-wood finishes, stylish art prints, and large plasma televisions showing only the most high-end sports, such as diamondball and yacht polo. Every Tuesday, the lounge gives smoke novices a lesson in tasting, rolling, and decisively pointing with cigars.
