The Chocolate Martini Bar is a restaurant and bar that prides itself on being both trendy and sexy. During the day, the restaurant has a family friendly atmosphere and menu complete with plenty of chocolate, of course. At night, however, the location becomes significantly hipper where the emphasis is placed on alcohol and desserts, the perfect place for a night out or special occasion. The Chocolate Martini Bar is happy to help host and plan parties. The liquor menu includes a large selection of wines, beers, mojitos, and – obviously - dozens of flavors of tasty martinis. And while the food menu contains a lot of traditional entrees (think sandwiches, flatbreads, steaks, and salads), desserts included crepes, pies, cakes, and ice cream, many of which are rich in chocolate.
