These are big girl martini's prepared to perfection. It's a great bar with a lively, inviting crowd. Has a piano in back that is often delighting the crowd. Enjoy!

Out with friends for early NYE and stopped by here for a drink before hitting BART. Great ambiance and friendly staff. Loved the entire atmosphere and music. Had a great martini!

Martuni’s is not your average cocktail bar. Go past the main bar and through to the back, where you will find a piano (with pianist) and next to it a microphone. You pick a song from the book, the pianist plays and you get to sing. You’ll most likely notice lots of talented regulars, but don’t put that off. If... More

On November 30th I came into Martuni's Bar and Lounge at 1am with a friend. I had not been in there for years. We decided to drop in since it was convenient and close to our walk home. I hadn't received my paycheck so my checking account was empty and I wanted to treat my friend a drink, a nice... More

Martuni's Bar in San Francisco is always a fun time. Good drinks and music. People singing show tunes and sings all night. Fun and friendly people.

Even though they claim to be a gay bar whenever I have gone it's always been a mixed crowd. Fun piano bar. Drinks are reasonably priced for SF and strong. Staff is great. I always have a good time there when I'm in SF

A friend and I went to Martuni's just for a couple of drinks - and stayed all night! The cocktails are delicious, so we had to work our way through the menu. The pianist was great, as was the singing - such a nice atmosphere. Skip's hospitality was brilliant, he really made us feel welcome and I'll be back there... More

Amazing atmosphere. Very dim and intimate which is perfect for a relaxing night. Bartenders are fast and responsive even if they have a full bar.

You can come here in a group or on your own and sit at the piano, it is always super fun , relaxed, and you are treated to amazing singers singing their favorite songs. Some of the thing is just get up and do their thing but it did seem like a lot of people singing were being overly particular... More

We have been to Martunis several times enjoying their cocktails and especially the live-music. Service can be hit-and-miss, but that night was attentive and fast, a small mistake was quickly corrected. Martunis is a great and stylish place to start the night.
