Unlike drinking beer, drinking martinis doesn't lead to spontaneous keg stands or smothering faces with uncomfortable goggles. Drink in style with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of cocktails at The Dirty Martini in Clearwater.
At The Dirty Martini, bartenders meticulously mix a dazzling array of ingredients to decant a toast-worthy lineup of cocktails and specialty drinks. Before yielding to the pleasantries of friendly conversation, guests are free to irrigate parched pipes with sundry sweet amalgamations, such as a Jolly Rancher martini loaded with Three Olives grape vodka, apple pucker, and cranberry juice ($8.75). Chocolate-mint martinis ($8.75) unify white-chocolate liqueur and Bols crème de menthe to tag-team tasters, and a Guatemalan Forest ($8.75) washes away inhibitions and tongue graffiti with splashes of Malibu rum.
General manager Tony Morris presides over The Dirty Martini, where warm lighting cascades from low-hung fixtures and gently splashes across crowds gathered tableside or along the marble-topped bar. An outdoor veranda lays out a neatly aligned row of tables where guests can revel in the nighttime air and take advantage of patio umbrellas as oversized garnishes for drinks.
