Lounge Underground: ginger's Martini Bar

At street level, guests revel and roar in downtown’s corner hub barleymash. But down below hides an underground oasis of sleek and sexy style. For intimate drinking and lounging, plunge downstairs into ginger’s, a martini bar tucked below all the barley.

Inside of ginger’s, warm paintings embellish the thick brick walls as dark curtains frame the space. This “deliciously dirty secret” is open seven nights a week, from 5pm to 2am. Head down for noteworthy drinks and a lounge-style experience that oozes sophistication and intrigue.

At the bar, a wide selection of martinis can be sipped and savored. Savvy bartenders can whip up the classics like dirty martinis and cosmos, but they can also create an array of signature drinks. Try the Ginger made with Skyy Ginger Vodka, maraschino liquor, fresh lemon, strawberry and of course, ginger. To pair, the ginger’s food menu boasts organic, sustainable and locally produced ingredients with everything made from scratch.

ginger’s also hosts live entertainment, setting a swanky ambiance and soundtrack for guests to enjoy. During game days, the nine flat-screen televisions are either stacked three-by-three for one main event or display nine different screens, so you won’t miss a beat at any angle.

And because of its intimate quarters, ginger’s also happens to be a top pick for private and special events including NFL parties, birthdays, meetings, mixers and more. Especially with the holidays around the corner, locals can consider buying-out the ginger’s space, letting them take care of the details to make a holiday party a success. Seated dinner can fit up to 50 people and cocktail parties can comfortably fit up to 100. You can expect specialized menus by Executive Chef Kevin Templeton, custom pastries and desserts by Pastry Chef Jessica Di Bona, beer, whiskey or wine pairing by the in-house specialists, a complete audio visual system, lighting, surround sound and PowerPoint capabilities, and even themed décor.

ginger’s is located underneath barleymash at 600 5ht Avenue.
