The Blue Martini, attractive though it may be, is suffering from an identity crisis. The bar boasts local and national blues acts in an unlikely area, far off the beaten path in Pinckney. As an uppity martini bar, the venue seems to miss the point of the blues almost entirely, drowning out the necessary roughness of the music with the clanking of martini glasses and expensive high heels. The waitstaff, and there's plenty of them, could learn a few manners. Despite the complaints however, the bar has an excellent sound system, is clean and provides ample seating. Make the drive only to catch your favorites in action or to be greeted by a friendly doorman, otherwise, stay home, pour yourself a beer and listen to a record.
