Though there may only be a few basement bars, that doesn't mean Frank's isn't the best. It's a smallish room where perhaps a half-dozen can sit at the bar, with tables beneath a ceiling so low you can reach up and touch it. It's worth a visit just to have a drink and see an old speakeasy, with pictures on the walls of the police smashing the liquor and beer they found there. Bring a friend and you'll have the pleasure of introducing them to something secret, even though the place is open to the public.
