CORRECTION: In an earlier version of this story, the author wrote that Darin Beck was working with the Paramount Bar Company. He no longer is associated with this group, and the Paramount Bar Company has no ties to this new bar in Cedar Rapids. The author apologizes for this confusion.

Darin Beck used to be the managing partner and president of the Paramount Bar Company. He helped open up martini bar Stuffed Olive in Cedar Falls and Iowa City.

He has since left the group. Recently he announced the news of a bar opening up in Cedar Rapids with a similar vibe to his old ventures.

This new spot will be called BarTini's and will offer a wide range of novelty martinis.

According to a report from the Gazette, the menu will feature about a hundred martinis. The food menu will consist of flatbreads, bruschetta and charcuterie boards.



The bar is set to open in October in a bustling part of Cedar Rapids, officials say.

BarTini's will be located at 151 First Ave. SW, Unit 104 with seating for 100 people, according to reports. There will also be a patio that will be set up to the west of Pickle Palace in Cedar Rapids.
