This neighborhood tavern just a few blocks from the heart of Hollywood specializes in burgers, beer and bourbon. The first comes with blue cheese, duck-fat aioli and truffle fries; the second offers 12 taps and an impressive reserve bottle list; and the third boasts more than 40 American whiskies to choose from. There’s even a set of whiskey tasting trios whose selections rotate weekly. Every Thursday is Burgers and Bourbon Night, when you can get three pours of bourbon with a custom-designed slider to pair with each for a total of $22.
THE DRINK TO DRINK:
Stick to bourbon neat or on the rocks. Franklin & Company isn’t really a fancy cocktail joint.
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO:
Brunch here is hugely popular, and for good reason. The (sadly-not-bourbon-based) Bloody Royale comes garnished with a slider, onion rings and a bacon-wrapped japaleño.
