When the occasion calls for a few drinks before or after the night gets started, 101 Downtown is great for kicking back with a cocktail. The restaurant and lounge was recently remodeled, making it the perfect place to unwind after a long day or have a couple drinks and some good conversation.
101 is most known for its specialty martinis. While they come at a hefty price (most are in the $10 range), the drinks pack a punch so you’ll get your money’s worth.
The Erotic Espresso martini, made with vodka, Kahlua, Bailey’s and espresso, is sweet as a Frappuccino and goes down just as easily. The Cosmopolitan is another favorite, strong and flavorful.
For something less sweet, the Dirty Girl is the restaurant’s standard dirty martini, served with vodka and three olives. Or, try The Great One, and the olives are served stuffed with blue cheese before taking a dive in your martini glass.
No matter what kind of drink you like, you can be sure that 101 Downtown probably has something to cater to it. (Key lime pie martini, anyone?) Come and stay for a few drinks, or longer if you’re willing to foot the bill.
