Frank is not what springs to mind when you hear the words ‘lobby bar’. Named after Ol’ Blue Eyes himself, it is housed in the Maksoud Plaza hotel, where Sinatra was a one-time regular. Evoking the ‘70s with its live jazz, vibrant booth seating and bar chairs, the drinks list showcases classics with a contemporary twist. Listed with date of creation and creator’s name, cocktails include ‘The Bloodhound’ (William Boothby, 1907), a potent blend of Beefeater Gin, yuzu leaf, vermouth and Luxardo Maraschino liqueur. Soups, sandwiches, burgers and hot dogs make up the crowd-pleasing food offering.
