We had read earlier this year on the I Love Franklin Ave. blog that a new bar was coming in on Franklin Avenue in our neighborhood (from the same people who opened Franklin Park and Dutch Boy Burger). Since then we’ve kept an eye on it. Permits were posted, but it didn’t look like there was anything going on, until today. The metal grate was raised and we saw the progress they’ve made on the front. We also peeked in the windows – the inside is coming along as well, with a cool-looking bar. We Googled and found out that Franklin Beer & Grocery applied for a liquor license on May 19. Exciting.
