GREEN — E-Martini Cocktail Bar opened late last year in the Shops of Green at 3700 Massillon Road in Suite 220.

The full-service cocktail bar is owned and operated by Al Lopez, who said he wanted to create a casual atmosphere with a trendy lounge feel for the new bar, which features a wood and brass décor.

“This is a great place to stop in after work and relax a little,” said the Green resident about the new bar. “The stylish cocktail lounge is paired with a comfortable pub feel.”

E-Martini offers signature martinis, a large selection of beer, wine and liquor and a menu of small-plate appetizers.

“Our specialty martinis are made from fresh-squeezed ingredients and include some sweet, chocolaty concoctions [Chocolattini] for those with a sweet tooth,” said Lopez. “We also have a selection of domestic and imported beers, as well as wine that can be purchased by the bottle or the glass.”

Martini specialties include the Marilyntini, the Coffee Beantini and the Irish Nut.

E-Martini also offers small-plate appetizers, which Lopez said are perfect for sharing and made in-house. These include the gigante meatball, which is served with ricotta cheese and crostini; stuffed Hungarian hot peppers; and a variety of flatbread pizzas. For more menu information, visit www.e-martini.com.

The bar has a dance floor and offers live entertainment by local bands Saturday nights beginning at 8:30 p.m., with no cover charge. The band schedule includes: Take 3 June 14; Uptown Cats June 21; and For Keeps June 28. For more details, follow E-Martini on Facebook.

Lopez stated that weeknights offer more subtle music, making it ideal for hanging out with friends or having an after-work get-together. E-Martini also can accommodate special events with advance notice.

A number of other specials are offered on weeknights. Wednesdays from 6 to 9 p.m. is Ladies Night, with free gift certificates offered for various salon services from Scott Talbot Salon and Spa in Green.

Happy Hour at the bar is Mondays through Saturdays from 3 to 6 p.m. During that time, E-Martini will offer $1 off all beers, mixed drinks and glasses of wine, $2 off signature martinis and $3 off all appetizers.

E-Martini is open Mondays through Saturdays from 3 p.m. to midnight. The bar also can be accessed from a back door on Corporate Woods Parkway.
