Hit up 333 during Happy Hour for discounted cocktails, as well as an equally impressive lounge menu featuring tasty favorites such as Kobe Beef Sliders, Spicy Poke Tuna Tacos or the Sweet Chili Calamari.
The Wellington - Mission Hills
With its dark and intimate setting co-mingling with the sound of shakers and the tantalizing aroma of Filet Mignon wafting in the air of the cozy dimly lit room, the Wellington just may be the perfect place to sip on a Martini. I like a dirty Martini that flirts with its dirtier side, the Bombay Dirty, is the perfect mix of perfumy juniper Bombay Sapphire Gin, dry Vermouth, Olive juice, and Blue Cheese Stuffed Olives that pairs perfectly with some of the best steaks in San Diego.
Capri Blu Italian Bistro and Wine Bar - Rancho Bernardo
A swanky cocktail deserves a posh location, at Capri Blu, you get the best of both worlds - fine Italian cuisine set in a contemporary, lavish room and Martini's that will make your senses sizzle. Try the Peartini, which features Grey Goose La Poire Vodka, Amaretto, Lemon, Simple Syrup and enjoy the fresh sensation of balanced tartness and sweetness with each sip. An impressive menu features classics such as Fettuccine alla Fra’ Diavola, an exalting dish featuring Jumbo Shrimp sautéed with a Spicy Tomato Sauce, Garlic and Chopped Tomatoes served on a bed of Fettuccine.

With its towering 40-story high views of the Pacific Ocean and downtown San Diego, the Top of the Hyatt is the perfect waterfront spot to view the glorious sunset while sipping on a Martini. Try the Meat & Cheese Board, a delectable combination of local & imported meats and cheeses, traditional garnishes, and grilled bread with any of their signature and flavored Martini's and elevate your mood with each sip and bite.
