Martini and Sushi Bar

 
Posted by Picasa


The Painted Lady Martini and Sushi Bar is right next door to Potbelly's on College Avenue near the FSU campus. As you can see, it is housed in what was probably someone's private residence a long time ago. Click on the picture to enlarge and get a better look. I like the paint job.

I love places like this that are renovated into restaurants! How is the sushi? ;-)

I love going in old places like this one, just to look around. They usually are pretty good too.

I didn't know of this place...don't drink Martinis and not too sure about Sushi...lol

I love the colors of this place!

I'm in a non-loving sushi moment, so i'll pass on the sashimi. Pass the tempura, though!

Again- WHAT??!!

Dang.
I love the way they painted this lovely old home.

I've never seen a martini/sushi bar in an old Victorian-style home before. I'd love to try it! It looks like a nice place.

What a beautiful "painted lady" - seems funny that drinks and sushi are served there now!

hee hee
That's quite a combination!

Jacob said...

I'm with you - those are great colors. I'd guess this is a happy college hangout...all those Noles trolling for sushi.

It's a very attractive paint job - must have taken a lot of care to do. Funny combination - martini and sushi. I'd like either one on its own but not sure about together.

The paint job is strange but not so much, we see weirder things around!

That's the first think I noticed about this place is all the pretty blues. It's a beatiful house. Personally, I can think of better things than martinis and sushi, especially together, but that's my own preference. In spite of that, I'd love to go just to see what it looks like inside. The outside is quite inviting.

I like the style of building, too. Fancy having martinis and sushi ... strange for me but obviously not for others.

I would never have guessed... There are a few places like these in Bangkok, where they have converted residences into restaurants and even night clubs, but most of them boast modern renovations that betrayed their new purposes.

what a cool house! I'm a big fan of veggie sushi!

Wonderful building!

Looks like a fun place! I wonder if there is an apartment upstairs.
