Concierge.com's insider take:
This burgeoning Florida chainlet of upscale lounges is stashed unprepossessingly on the ground level of the Galleria Mall. It's a shame about the location, because Blue Martini is a friendly, dressy setting for a drink or two; the martini list (half price daily from 4 to 7 p.m.) is heavy on sweet, exotic blends (try the Black Cherry Cosmo) and the snack menu offers finger food like jumbo-shrimp martinis or an assortment of sushi rolls. Among the dark wood and warm lighting, grab a table inside if you want to listen to the nightly live music show, usually light jazz or smoky vocals, or opt for one of the shaded patio spots if you'd rather chat.
