Mark Bee’s Gayborhood Bar Will Be Franky Bradley’s

A couple of snippets of training materials and in-work menus prove that Mark Bee’s successor to Sisters nightclub at the corner of Chancellor and Juniper Streets will be named Franky Bradley’s. A name that harkens back to 1930s when Frankie Bradley’s occupied the same space. According to Gayborhood Guru, Frankie Bradley’s was a restaurant owned by a Jewish prize fighter, Frankie Bloch. The restaurant was known for its planked steaks, lobster and seafood. The original Frankie Bradley’s had a 53-year run.

As for the new Franky Bradley’s, we’re hearing there will be live music and a traditional American menu.

We’ll be posting new details as soon as we have them.

UPDATE: We received a cryptic message from Franky Bradley’s. It simply stated, “The gloves are back on … Open for business January 15th. Drink. Dance. Dine. Deviate.” – Well, the original Franky Bradley was a boxer.
