Description: Franky Bar is a genuine embodiment of American culture, aesthetics and lifestyle as they were in the first half of the XXth century. Not much time has passed since Prohibition was revealed and the Golden Age of cocktails in America began. What is very distinguishing about this place is its atmosphere which comes directly from the surroundings. Being located in the heart of the city, Franky Bar is still hidden at a rather exclusive spot. Aromas of coffee, Sinatra's sweet voice, twilight...This is something that fills the atmosphere here. In our bar card you'll find pure old-school recipes as well as many original cocktail specials. For those who love experiments we offer just to tell the barmen which beverage to choose as a cocktail basic part. Though if it's too hard to choose, you won't be asked too many questions. Some polished movements and you get the cocktail which reads your mood and matches the time. Franky Bar is a place where a life well savoured with classic cocktails presents us with such a unique gift as luxurious rest filled with meaning.

One of my local acquaintances recommended us to visit this place. We decided to give it a shot. When we reached it, from outside it looked like a terribly posh and expensive place, we even considered leaving right away. Fortunately we went inside. I’ve been to so many bars in my life in lots of cities and towns in Russia and 35 countries of the world, but this place is one of the nicest ones that I’ve ever been to.
Interior, staff, furniture, drinks and food - everything is on a very high level. If we ever come back to Nizhny Novgorod this bar is definitely to be visited over and over again. To tell the truth I’m even jealous of the locals that they have such a place in their city.

We spent the whole evening in Franky. Firstly disappointed with the need to stay at the counter, a barmen told us that it is actually the best place to go, so we decided to give it a try.

Fabulous choice of whiskey, especially Scottish (and I haven't seen many positions from the menu while studying in Edinburgh) was backed up by the best barmen squad I've ever met. There was a good chemistry's between the gentlemen, but it was the dialogue that was the precious part. Getting home, me and my friend ended up with broadened horizons in decent alcohol, a bit of Hemingway, and city itself. Yuri, if you are reading this, we are truly grateful not just for the island scotch.

No visit here is complete without Frankie, and don't fear the counter.
