Your newest favorite speakeasy is actually located right behind a very delicious and caffeinated joint that you may have popped in for your morning Americano before.
Located in Greenpoint, Franklin 99 is a bar in disguise by its fully functioning cafe in the front. Stop in mornings and afternoons and get everything from a latte, cappuccino, their special Cold Fashion (made with cold brew, orange zest, and cinnamon), to light bites like mozzarella sticks and truffle fries.
But everyone knows that once you’re through with your first (or seventh) coffee of the day, the only thing that could be better than a second (or eighth) is a nice refreshing cocktail! Thanks to 99 Franklin, all your beverage problems are solved.
An incognito door among the tiling opens up to an intimate, dimly-lit cocktail lounge that’s the perfect winter hideout.
Order from a lineup of exceptionally tasty cocktails from their Espresso Martini’s to their Mezcal Negroni’s.
And better yet, they offer a late night happy hour. On weekdays every Monday through Wednesday enjoy $12 cocktails, $10 beer & shot, & $5 beers.
But what may be the most exciting part about this place is that there’s actually an outdoor patio in the back! Grab your crew and bundle up because you’re gonna want to check it out regardless of the temperature outside. Cozy around by the heated fire pit and throw it back to your childhood with some ooey-gooey s’mores! And yes, there are heat lamps as well.
So what are you waiting for!? This spot practically has everything a New Yorker needs, i.e., caffeine & alcohol.
The bar is open Tuesday – Thursday 6:30 p.m. – 12:00 a.m. & Friday and Saturday 6:30 p.m. – 2:00 a.m.
