Welcome to The Bigg Blue Martini
Established in 1998, Bigg Blue Martini has become Kentucky’s favorite martini bar. Located in the heart of Lexington, across from Rupp Arena and Triangle Park, Bigg Blue Martini is the lounge of the Hilton Lexington/Downtown. It has become a traditional gathering spot for University of Kentucky fans before Wildcat games, Rupp Arena concert goers, and the Lexington Opera House concert goers. Our patio is a great summer hangout to see and be seen.
Bigg Blue Martini, also known as the BBM, has been named Kentucky’s best martini by Kentucky Monthly Magazine and offers over twenty unique specialty martinis including several that feature the flavor of the area-bourbon.
The BBM has a wide menu selection including appetizers, sandwiches and entrees. A featured item that is unique to Kentucky is the Kentucky Hot Brown. It is an open-faced Sandwich with Turkey, Bacon and Tomato and smothered in cream sauce and cheese. Food is served until 11pm nightly.
The BBM is also proud to feature the fine products of the Lexington Brewing Company, which is home to Award winning beers Kentucky Ale, Kentucky Light and it’s specialty beer the Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale.
On Friday and Saturday nights, the BBM features some of Lexington’s best musicians including blues, jazz, piano and soft rock acts.
