      I am hoping not to start a debate about what does and does not constitute a martini, but since drinking gin is like work: Vodka martini, up, cold, olives.

    2. You don't have to stray too, too far from Dupont to get to Off the Record, where the bartenders are excellent and, to be honest, it's a bar where looking around makes you want to drink a martini.

      1. as much as I hate the place, the dirty martinis at 18th St Lounge were, as I remember, REALLY good.

        1. I'll give my vote to PS7 in gallery place

          1. Round Robin bar makes good classic drinks. Of course Todd Thrasher is the best bartender in town, but his cocktails you want to be non-traditional. There was someplace my brother who loves martinis, but prefers gin, really liked for a plain dirty martini, it might have been Zola.
