A perennial favorite in this category, Sullivan's boasts "steaks, martinis and jazz." The bar offers 10 choices of martinis, priced from $9.95 to $11.95 per tipple. The joint's signature martini is the Knockout. To make it, the crew lets Smirnoff orange vodka sit in a pineapple for two weeks, after which the juice-and-vodka infusion is served with an orange twist. Add a shot of Tuaca, and they call it the TKO. Among the others are the chocolatey Good Night Kiss, the fruity Mango Tango and a classic dirty martini called The CEO, which includes blue-cheese-stuffed olives. On Thursdays and Sundays, all martinis and bar entrées are just $5.
