Soon enough, the Franklin Manor was born and the bar scene in Tampa changed yet again.

If you have a party of 20 guests or more, reservations are necessary. Large lunch parties are more than welcomed, with plenty of seating in Franklin Manor’s high top benches, café tables, bleachers and at the bar.
