Franklin and Co. tends to get lost in the frantic shuffle of Franklin Village, but this neighborhood tavern is a solid spot grab a bite to eat and some drinks before seeing your friends improv show at UCB next door. The food is good (they have a giant pretzel to share), there are TVs on the wall, and there’s a crazy selection of whiskey if that’s where the night seems to be headed.
