Nestled away on quiet Arévalo street lies Franks, one of BA’S must-try cocktail bars, a true pioneer of the Speakeasy movement and flaunting one the coolest vintage-inspired vibes in the city. Part of the secrecy allure sprung from Franks is that it takes some effort to get in. Dress-code applies and a password must be provided at the entrance. And even though the password can be relatively easy to find on their Facebook, there’s still the whole going in through an obscure phone booth thing that will make your jaw keep dropping by the minute.
