Time Out Sydney

Rooty Hill meets West Hollywood at this new bar from the Swillhouse Group. And they’re open very late.

Recognise the sheer power that is Frankie’s. A bar that’s part dodgy-but-awesome pizzeria, part dark, dank and dirty West Hollywood dive - complete with heavy metal Sundays and occasional rock’n’roll karaoke - and part secret whisky bar (that’s our favourite bit). It’s a complete package, from the selection of Italian liqueurs and (actually surprisingly decent) pizze out the front, the craft beer selection in the middle (boo for plastic cups, yay for tinnies) and the whisky selection in the discreet back area, lovingly known as the Fun Room. And it’s that room, past the fairy-lit stage and neon beer signs, out the back door and through what looks like a storage cupboard, which holds the most enjoyment for us. There are a few comfy leather booths, a nice wide bar, a tub of tinnies on ice and a toilet plastered in late 70s motorcycle ads. It’s a miniature Shady Pines in the middle of the city, hidden behind two almost-as-awesome bars out the front. Rock on.
