The Franklin Mortgage & Investment Co. opened its hefty subterranean door, it was hard to defend the Philadelphia cocktail scene from naysayers. Sure, there were plenty of talented bartenders and quite a few solid drink lists around town, but nothing to definitively point to. Time flies, and today The Franklin is celebrating four years in business on 18th Street.
To thank all the patrons who made the petite spot a success (since drinking all those cocktails was a rough job), classic daiquiris will be offered at just $9 through July 18. Anyone familiar with the usual prices will recognize that as a definite deal. Congrats on turning four! We’ll drink to that.
