Year of The Martini


I decided about a month ago that since I'm in my later 20's it was time I started to drink martini's. I'm not talking the fluffy girly drinks, I'm talking classic cocktails. I found a great list of 'Chicago's Best Martini's' and it pointed me to the M Avenue Lounge at the Allerton Hotel on Michigan Avenue. The boyfriend and I made it a date night and Friday we toasted to the first of many classic martini's. This is going to be a fun adventure, Cheers!

The Dirty Martini and My Vodka Gimlet

Loved the gimlet, it will be on my re-order list. I've learned I'm not a fan of the dirty.
M Avenue Lounge had a great atmosphere, delish crab cakes and bar snack mix, I seriously wanted to get the bar mix in a to-go bag. It was a great place to kick-off my year of the martini.
Any suggestions for my next stop?
