Franklin820 is more than just your typical neighborhood corner bar. We're moving back to simpler times serving homemade food, classic cocktails, great beer and specialty wine.
Keep it Fresh:
Comfort food makes us happy. Our food is prepared daily in-house. Whether you order our Baked Macaroni and Cheese, Pimiento Grilled Cheese, Sloppy Joe or the Beer Braised Short Rib Sandwich, we guarantee you'll be back for seconds.
Keep it Simple:
Expect to find classic cocktails with a twist, craft beers on tap and wines from small family-owned wineries.
Keep it Real:
Our comfortable and casual atmosphere is perfect for an after-work cocktail or low-key date night. The community table is ideal for sharing a drink and making new friends. A 25-foot long bar hosts two TV monitors and a projector screen which can be seen from all seats. Enjoy al fresco dining when we open up our French doors at the front of the bar for some fresh air.
The space was vacant for over two years. It was a complete wreck inside. Dusty, dirty, abandoned; it was love at first sight. During demolition we uncovered a ten foot section of wall from the original Bodega as well as a vintage Life grocery store sign from the 70's. The sign now hangs above the bar’s balcony and the rest of the interior was built and colorized around these two objects. It took ten months to transform a forsaken storefront into our new home.

As kids, the owners desired to be restaurateurs with their best friend Mike. Tragically, at the young age of 23, a young life was taken too soon when Mike succumbed to cancer. At his side in Mike's last days, the friends made a promise to fulfill his dream.
30 years forward, Franklin820 was born. With loving memory to our buddy, we give a portion of our sales to the American Cancer Society.
