About Franky Bradley’s In Philadelphia

PHILADELPHIA - Franky Bradley’s is an effervescent funk- and kitsch-filled nostalgic restaurant and bar in the heart of Center City's Midtown Village, from local owner Mark Bee (who also owns Silk City Diner and Lounge, and N. 3rd Bar & Restaurant).

The restaurant dates back to 1933 when Frankie Bradley, South Philadelphia native and former boxer, opened his first restaurant and helmed the establishment for over 50 years, garnering celebrity clientele such as Elizabeth Taylor, Dick Clark, and Lucille Ball. Over time, the space was converted into a nightclub and event space, favored by locals, tourists, and the surrounding LGBTQA+ community. In present times, Franky Bradley’s [led by General Manager Joe “Joppy” Ferrone] offers an extensive beverage menu, craft cocktails, beer, and wine, in addition to an ever-evolving line-up of live events such as burlesque and drag shows.  Currently, hours of operation are Wednesday through Saturday from 5 pm – 2 am. Franky Bradley’s is located at 1320 Chancellor St, Philadelphia, PA 19107.
