This is a super cozy and nice bar/restaurant. Feels like you are sitting in a livingroom. Drinks are just awesome, I would say the best in Nizhny (at least of what I have tried). The food is also at a high standard and service is...More

Cool place with very nice service. The cocktails are good. I ordered a squid pasta with black sauce and it is really good! Will definitely dine here again when I visit Nizhny Novgorod in the future.

Franky Bar is a genuine embodiment of American culture, aesthetics and lifestyle as they were in the first half of the XXth century. Not much time has passed since Prohibition was revealed and the Golden Age of cocktails in America began. What is very distinguishing about this place is its atmosphere which comes directly from the surroundings. Being located in the heart of the city, Franky Bar is still hidden at a rather exclusive spot. Aromas of coffee, Sinatra's sweet voice, twilight...This is something that fills the atmosphere here. In our bar card you'll find pure old-school recipes as well as many original cocktail specials. For those who love experiments we offer just to tell the barmen which beverage to choose as a cocktail basic part. Though if it's too hard to choose, you won't be asked too many questions. Some polished movements and you get the cocktail which reads your mood and matches the time. Franky Bar is a place where a life well savoured with classic cocktails presents us with such a unique gift as luxurious rest filled with meaning.
