Fruity Martini

45 Degrees Martini Lounge

45 Degrees Martini Lounge may be a small hole in the wall bar; but with the atmosphere of the place, once certainly can’t complain. There’s live music, great wings and a drinks, and a good crowd. The ambiance is fantastic on Thursdays, so it’s not a night to miss out on – just like Ladies Night on Wednesdays. As summer approaches the atmosphere gets even more attractive.

The Landing

The Landing

The Landing has outstanding food and an excellent staff on top of great drinks and location. It is across from the Virginia Beach municipal center. There’s always a crowd at dinner so be sure to get there earlier if you want guaranteed seating. If you’re eating, try one of the seafood dishes – simply divine.

Static Restaurant & Lounge

Bar, Restaurant, American

Static Restaurant & Lounge has good people, good drinks, good music, and good food. If you’re looking for soul food in Hampton Roads, this is the place to go. It may not be a large establishment – it is located in a strip mall after all – but it’s not hard to get a table or a seat at the bar. Their macaroni and cheese is the best in the area.



Stoleys has top-notch service to match the quality of food it provides. The chance of getting a bad meal here is minimal. Plus, the atmosphere is lively and the martinis are top-notch. While very small, Stoleys attracts the local crowd due to the prices. Sometimes you have to wait if there’s a big rush.

Eagles' Nest

Bar, American

Eagles’ Nest is a bar that also serves Sunday morning brunch. Before 1pm there’s great specials on drinks and at night there’s great music and service. On Wednesday nights they have line dancing lessons from 7 to 9pm and it’s a fun, safe place for women to hang out with their girl friends. There’s a good combination of new dances and classic ones on Wednesdays. On Thursdays its Martinis and Manicures Night, with all money raised going to local charities.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
