Unique. Classy. Quaint. And a perfect locale for martinis and live music—or to just chill with a girlfriend over appetizers and drinks. The latter was my experience and it was a big two-forks-up.
Located in the former family room of the Rib Room, Nick’s Martini & Wine Bar has magnificently transformed into a most elegant martini bar. And architecture and décor aside, patrons may enjoy live music every night (call for more information) and there is a dance floor for those so inclined.
Fine service is a biggee for me and I wasn’t disappointed. The Nick’s wait staff and bartenders were incredibly friendly and welcoming. My friend, Julie, and I were waited on by Aleesha and Faith—they were wonderful.
From specialty martinis to an extensive wine list and various beers, unique libation choices are many. And if looking to snack, this is the place. Julie and I are notorious appetizer girls, so Nick’s was a great fit for us! The food offered at Nick’s is considered “small plate” options—that being a wonderful variety of appetizer-like food. But it’s not typical, bar-like fried bites. Julie and I ordered the lobster crab bake and a focaccia basket. The crab bake included a lobster and blue crab mixture blended with a creamy, cheesy topping— served with delicious toasted baguettes for dipping. And the focaccia basket was equally tasty.
If you’re needing a heartier, heftier plate full of food? Walk to Nick’s neighbors at the Rib Room. But if looking for a place to simply relax with your friends (or date night with your honey) over drinks, you won’t be disappointed at Nick’s. Tell ‘em glo sent you!
