Frequenters of underground watering hole Franklin Mortgage & Investment Co. (118 S. 18th St.) know head bartender Al Sotak well. He's been crafting Franklin's ever evolving cocktail menu since 2009. Well, it looks like Sotak is moving on to greener pastures i.e. New York cocktail dens Death and Company and Pouring Ribbons.
Mike "Juice" Treffehn is stepping up to the head spot. You might remember him from our tiki cocktail class adventures a few months back. Franklin tipplers can look forward to classes and workshops offered in the new upstairs bar beginning in the next few month along with a new cocktail menu designed by Sotak and Treffehn rolling out November 4th.
