How would you describe Frank Sinatra? I don’t know about you, but I’d say he had inherent style without trying too hard, he was polished with a dark streak and he was generally known as the epitome of 60s cool. A good-time crooner who knew how to do things his way. Now take all of that and try to implement it onto a bar concept. That’s where #Frankie_Goes_2_ Rehab comes in, an all-day hangout for the 20something set who love a nod to the 60s without going full vintage. They’re edgy without crossing into hipster territory and they like their drinks with a hint of nostalgia. Located on a pedestrian precinct that’s steadily growing in popularity, #Frankie_Goes_2_ Rehab tends to spill out onto the street, especially on a hot summer night, when the past bleeds into the present and everything looks a little more Technicolor than it did before.
If you’re feeling adventurous, you can continue your evening next door, a recent extension to the original location, where the mood is decidedly more luxurious with intense red, gold and green brushstrokes. The 100+ rum labels could get you into a lot of trouble if you’re not careful, so we suggest you keep it classy with one of their 12 signature cocktails. Try “Strangers in the Night”, an inspired combination of coconut tequila, lime, pineapple puree and Angostura bitters that’s quite a kick in the head (Sinatra pun intended). It would be the perfect ending to a cinematic evening, although if you choose to keep on drinking, we promise not to tell!
