The Celebrated Bar In Philadelphia

Raise a Toast to Next-level Cocktails

A sultry speakeasy for late-night escapades, the Franklin Mortgage & Investment Company hides behind an unmarked door – a subtle nod to a bootlegging backstory that dates back to Prohibition. Secretive and full of intrigue, it caters to a crowd that favors dark corners, low light, Coltrane tunes, and come-hither cocktails. 

Sunday-Thursday | 5pm - 11pm
