As the weekend rolls around, we started thinking about our go-to spots to sip on a martini. And one of our favorites quickly came to mind, especially if you are looking for that downtown feel! Truluck's is currently located on Colorado St. with a gorgeous and popping downstairs lounge + an elegant dining room for fancier nights out.

In addition, we have rounded up 13 more of our tried + true spots to check out when you’re in the mood for a martini - the fancy, the casual, and the really really dry!
