Don’t be fooled by its name. The Franklin Mortgage & Investment Co., named after the largest alcohol ring in the country during Prohibition, plays into the seemingly never-ending speakeasy trend. Whether or not you’re into gimmicks, make your way down the flight of stairs that lead into the dimly-lid unassuming drinking den and you’ll delight to find expertly crafted cocktails. Better yet, the menu is conveniently divided into self-explanatory categories – think “Rebellious Spirits” and “Easy Going.” (thefranklinbar.com)
