The Franklin Mortgage Investment Co.
It doesn’t sound like the name of a bar. But if you were part of the largest, underground alcohol ring in the country in the 1920s, you wouldn’t have wanted it to, either. Today, Franklin Mortgage & Investment Co. honors that front by celebrating the noble craft of bartending, and recreating that delightful, pre-Prohibition atmosphere for enjoying a great drink, conversation, and a good tune. Tell them your tastes, and they will guide you to a classic or something destined to be. Order something from the ’20s, and party like it’s illegal.
Notable bartender: Al Sotak
It must have taken a village to haul in all this whiskey! All kinds of whiskey, from Japanese to New American, kindly served just how you like it. Take it from a Village Whiskey bartender/expert, and get a recommendation for a tried and true whiskey cocktail. Or take a whiskey flight to compare and contrast some of usual (and unusual) suspects.
Notable bartenders: Lindsay Kreuger, John Borror
