Part of a chain with outposts around the state and in Vegas, Blue Martini is known as a pickup joint for the middle-age set. Gold-diggers and diggees are lovingly tended to by beautiful Barbie-doll waitresses in blue corsets and flat-ironed hair. Adding to the vapid factor is the fact that this high-end martini bar with valet parking makes its home … in the Galleria shopping mall! Relatively soulless, even by South Florida standards, Blue Martini has drinks called "The Skinny Bitch" and "The Palm Beacher." But still, it packs a crowd (even when they charge a cover!); it gets loud and busy, especially on weekends. Big cigar-chomping spenders love this place (Ponzi schemer Scott Rothstein was a regular) and it shows. The menu is slim but fancy (lobster tacos, anyone?)
