Tonight, and every Monday night, Tizi Melloul offers a great selection of martinis for only three dollars. You can’t even buy a jar of olives for three dollars. Because cocktails that cheap are a sure recipe for disaster without food, they also offer tapas for three to five dollars. 

Here’s what you can get:


  • Moroccan Martini: rum, creme de cassis, pineapple juice
  • Melon Martini: melon liqueur, vodka, pineapple juice
  • Peach Fez: vodka, peach schnapps, orange juice, cranberry juice
  • Mint Ice Cream: kahlua, irish cream liqueur, creme de menthe
  • Classic: vodka, olive juice, dry vermouth


  • black pepper mac & cheese, $4
  • kefta meatballs, yogurt sauce, $4
  • bacon wrapped dates, lavender-honey sauce, $5
  • goat cheese stuffed peppers, herb cracker bread, $5
  • pommes frittes, roasted garlic and shallot aioli, harissa ketchup, $3
