Went here after a long day of walking facilities. Got there right when it opened. The bartender was so sweet and welcoming! She went over the menu, asking what we liked, didn’t like to make the perfect martini for us. I loved the atmosphere and...More

Our family wandered over to Martinis for after dinner drinks. I was immediately turned off by the $5 cover, especially since we were going to sit inside. The bar scene inside was busy but not packed. We took seats on couches in a nook and...More

A former railway station transformed into a bar. Looks great. They had a band playing outside on the weekend. Friendly service. Good selection of drinks. Well worth a visit.

Martinis is located within an old train station. The bar itself is absolutely stunning. Extensive martini list however the martinis are not made with the premium spirits listed on the menu. Nice outdoor patio. I will return when visiting Peoria.

Martini's is really a 3.5 out of 4, but it doesn't quite earn that 4th star. They have some very good drinks, but they also have some very bad drinks. Some martinis are acquired tastes probably. It's a very expensive bar, so you should only...More
