Through bitter experience, US bars that feature martinis in their signage are bars you are best advised ordering anything other than a martini.
Would you order a martini in a dive bar in the UK?!
I can’t imagine a spit and sawdust pub (closest UK equivalent to a dive bar) putting a martini glass with olive on their pub sign. If they did, I possibly would be mischievous enough to try ordering one.
Of course, I’ve found some strange bars here in California’s Central Valley. There’s a tiki bar I find a little terrifying, but everyone drinks fruity-looking concoctions (well, it is a tiki bar, but the clientele look like they’d be happier in a biker bar).
