This place was recommended by another bartender on the waterfront shhh! Great vibe to just hang out and enjoy he music. Food and Drinks were good and the bartenders were friendly and on point. Definitely worth checking out.

Great happy hour prices and drinks. Old Fashioned and Frose were delicious. Outdoor patio isn't anything special especially when raining there is no seating. Indoors was closed for special event. Good drink menu.

The outside bar tenders will go to the person next to after looking you in the face. I waited almost 20 mins to get food and still the bar tenders went to the ppl that just walked up. I know they saw me cause they looked me in the face a few times...

We dropped into Downtown Tampa after dinner on a Saturday night to do some bar hopping. While driving though Franklin Manor clearly was the place to be! It was pumping with music and lights and it stood out. We hit another bar and being that the band there had an hour before coming on and we saw Franklin Manor was already jamming we headed right over. We didn't regret it. It was our first time there and did not know what to expect. It was a 21 and up place and we made our way to the outside area. It was just getting started so it wasn't too packed. There were tables and seats all over. We ordered some drinks and about to order food. At a certain time the floor tables get put up for more room and/or a dance floor. The waitresses and the bartenders were quick and TV's were all over with different sports on. There was a very nice crowd there and there was no issues with loud, rude or annoying people. Everything was nice but the best part by far... THE LIVE MUSIC! The setup was great and the band was awesome! They jammed out all night with a nice variety of music. It seems they have live music all the time and there was a nice lounge that looks like a DJ might spin in there. There was another bar in the with some tables. A little later it did get really packed but it was still very much enjoyable. Our group had a blast and we'll definitely be back!

Great place for professionals to network and unwind. The night I went it was packed but not too overwhelming. Probably not a place to visit on a Friday night if you do not like crowds but the bartenders were nice and definitely know what their doing. Diverse offering in music as well. Recommend it for city dwellers and suburbanites alike.
