Default Is it ok for a guy to order a martini in a normal bar?

You (a male) go to the bar with two of your buddies. One orders a Labatt Blue, the other orders a tall blue moon, and you order a dirty martini. Is this ok to do?

Martini's are for gays and women. Just my opinion. It does not suit me to order one but if that is what blows your skirt up then by all means get a martini

If you think you might be gay then no, because it would only confirm what your buddys probably already suspect. However, if your comfortable in your manhood then drink whatever the hell you want.

Except it doesn't taste like coolaid and contains more alcohol than a fistful of beers.

By normal bar, I take it you mean a "shot and a beer" joint. In that case, I would not order one. They probably couldn't make one worth a damn anyway.

I used to think martini's were bitch drinks until I had a few at Andiamo's, holy shit were they good and knocked me on my ass. I think its point of view from people who dont drink them, maybe. And I second that about probably not ordering it because of the quality.

This is a good point. I normally only get one in a bar that has a martini list (only ever get dirty, but at least you know they train people in how to make a good one).

If you were in a bar where they have actual bartenders that know how to mix a drink, then yes.

If it's a bar where the bartenders are nothing more than beerslingers and bad drink mixers, I'd probably question my friend's sanity. A martini is only worth drinking if it is a good mix, otherwise you're dropping money on a crap drink.
