Martini's on your mind?

I first stopped by the Incognito Lounge two weeks ago, co-owner Kevin Knott was on his hands and knees laying wood floors, and his wife, Kristina, who Kevin calls "the brains behind the business" was directing deliveries and instructing workmen. Despite the hustle and bustle, they were determined to open the doors the following week.

Yesterday afternoon, I passed by and saw the huge "Now Open" sign hanging out front, so I stopped in to take another peek.

Located in the slowly blossoming MiraBay Village in Apollo Beach, the Incognito Lounge is a very attractive place. It features dangling lighting, comfortably cushioned lounge chairs and walls lined with the work of local artists. Sipping and noshing outside will be enjoyed after tomorrow, when the patio chairs are delivered, Kevin told me.

Incognito manages to be cozy, casual and elegant, all at the same time. Its intimate setting seems perfect for winding down after work or a sophisticated night on the town. Live jazz is scheduled on Friday and Saturday nights.

The restaurant/lounge includes a specialty drink selection of nine intriguing concoctions, including the Kiwi Envy (Absolut Citron, muddled kiwi, fresh squeezed lime juice, simple syrup, and club soda) and Blood Orange Margarita (Patron Silver, Grand Marnier, sour mix, blood orange juice.)

The martini list, mostly sweet, has a Classic Dirty Martini (vodka or gin, olive juice, and blue cheese stuffed olives) and Bloody Martini (Absolut, a few drops of hot sauce and bloody Mary mix) that's served with creole, celery, salt-rimmed glass and garnished with a grape tomato and a jalapeno.

Guests can nosh on appetizers like Asian Lettuce Wraps, a Fruit and Cheese Plate or Sliders.
Hungry for more? Soups, salads, sandwiches and gourmet pizzas, prices start at $4.95

The official grand opening will take place on April 18th.
