Last week when we spoke about Maydan, from the owners of Compass Rose, coming to the Manhattan Laundry building – some folks noted that there was major construction going on Florida. They were looking at the space that will shortly be Franklin Hall. Back in August we learned Franklin Hall would be a:

“New Tavern. Serving a fine selection of draft beers, wine and craft cocktails. The food will be selections of sausages, giant pretzels and fries. Entertainment Endorsement to provide live entertainment, dancing, and cover charge. Total Occupancy Load is 232. Summer Garden with 40 seats.”

Gotta be days away from opening:


You can see more (better) photos of the interior on Tin Shop’s website. Tin Shop are also partners in Smoked & Stacked, Big Chief, Lost & Found, Penn Social and others. Stay tuned for an exact opening date.

    The inside reminds me a lot of Angel City Brewery in LA’s arts district. I wonder how the open interior along with the garden will be as far as noise goes though…. I feel like it could get loud.

      That concrete floor will echo a lot, but the photos on Tin Shop’s website show a lot of wood, which should hopefully dampen the sound. Even so, I bet this place will be pretty loud.
