Splash out with a flight and impress everyone.
Cast in cool white, gray and green tones this popular bar overlooking the Grand Foyer specializes in martinis. Circling the main bar is a sheet of frozen metal and soon after opening at 4:00 p.m., guests start scrawling their names in the frost. A small selection of caviar plates is available, ranging from Russian Coral ($18) to Golden Golani Osetra ($120), each served with blinis. Combos including a glass or champagne or shot of vodka are available.
There’s a long list of nouveau martinis, plus the classics. For those who just can’t choose there’s a flight of six elixers, ranging from traditional to apple to a raspberry-lemonade martini. The martinis are individually mixed and then shaken in a stack before being simultaneously poured into their respective glasses—a mean fete. The portions are 3 oz each, making this a solid value for $15 (and a great conversation starter, too).
A few feet away the freestanding bar Crush showcases more than 30 bottles of vodka and gin shrouded in shaved ice. The vodkas are organized by new world and old, and some of the more exotic specimens hail from places like Iceland and Kazakhstan. Themed flights of vodkas are also available here. The narrow bar at Crush seats 10 and is serviced by crew from the Martini Bar.
The ship’s standard bar menu is also available at the Martini Bar.
