    Same inattentive bartender that used to work at lava room. This guy blows as a bartender then as he does now. Nothing like being ignored so he can talk to his friend(s) :/

    Great patio in the summer. Don't underestimate upstairs. Way better than the 1st floor.

    Drinking Made Easy says: Famous nationwide for its martinis and hand-crafted cocktails, this is the flagship bar of Martini Corner. A great place to go for a night out on the town.

    This place has gone downhill quite a bit. Sticky tables, sullen staff... it's a shame.

    Alice I and frequent this bar every Wednesday. Yesterday was by far the worst experience I've had at any Kansas city bar. The environment upon walking in was hostile. I felt a definite homophobic tone

    Used to come here once a week with one of my best friends. Wednesday Sept 5 the staff was hostile and homophobic. Always had such great service here before. Not coming back.

    Great martini list, but they don't always taste the same and that sucks. You never know if the bartender knows how to make the drink until you taste it.
