History of the Martini Group Page
The history of the martini can be traced back to the late nineteenth century jaunts of Old San Francisco. The drink appears in the 1887 manual of Jerry Thomas, who tended bar at the opulent Occidental Hotel, down on Montgomery near the Embarcadero. Others attribute the cocktail to world-famous San Franciscan mixologist, William Boothby, who, in his 1907 bartenders' guide The World's Drinks And How To Mix Them, provides perhaps the earliest recipe for the "Dry" Martini Cocktail.
Either way, we're pretty confident the Martini is a "bebida de la ciudad", a drink of our city and the perfect choice for a signature cocktail. Here at the View Lounge, in honor of our opening date we have created the TEN/89 Martini.
Enjoy and Long Life!
