What's old and then was new then got slightly old is now new again.
Martini lounge's are making a big comeback in large cities that aren't necessarily known worldwide for their nightlife. Though you can find them in places like San Francisco, Chicago, New York, and Miami, they really excel in places like Denver, Dallas, Atlanta, and now, San Jose.
The San Jose Mercury news has done a short story on the lounges in and around San Jose and writer Mark de la Vina had all the right takes on each place (at least, the ones I've been).
If you're ever in the South Bay (and really, who isn't?) this is a good list to go by. Got anymore lists? Write us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll gladly post them.
