Sullivan's deserves the award for getting in the spirit of Best of TucsonTM
. The bar is in the '20s style, with a jazz ensemble that plays Ellington tunes. Sullivan's signature martini is the Knockout, one of the countless great-grandchildren of the original martini. Picture this--a very large jar sitting on a light on the bar, filled with Finlandia vodka and neatly checkerboard-stacked chunks of pineapple. The pineapple infuses the vodka, which is then poured into a Sullivan's martini glass and served with a twist of orange. You can't help but want to take the entire jar home. Thursday from 5 p.m. to closing is Happy Night.
