The Franklin Hotel Bar is located in Kent’s downtown Franklin Hotel, a 1920 building that fell on hard times and was nearly demolished before being restored and reopened in 2013. The upscale bar features craft beers, choice winesand classic cocktails, as well as proprietary drinks, such as a banana bread Old Fashioned or a spicy habenero orange margarita.
If your idea of a relaxing evening focuses as much on food as drink, there’s plenty to choose from: small plates and shared plates for noshing and a chef’s tasting menu that changes with the season. It’s closed Sunday and Monday, open until midnight Friday and Saturday if you’re looking to grab a drink after a show at the Kent Stage across the street.
