Drinks & Nightlife

Frankie's is a Downtown classic as it has an underground bar. Don't hesitate to head down those stairs. Oh, keep in mind the underground is mostly active on the weekends. If you are celebrating, book the "Pimp Room" in the underground. Last I checked, there is no booking fee or minimum purchase amount.
