Sydney CBD rock bar and pizza joint is slinging $1-a-slice pizza in happy hour every day until the doors close.
It has been confirmed that beloved live music haunt, pizza venue and dive bar Frankie’s will be demolished in 2022 to make way for a brand new Metro station, part of the planned Metro West line linking Parramatta to the CBD. As much as our trains could do with the upgrade, this has been a shock to Sydney’s music junkies, boozers and pizza enthusists since the news was slipped beneath the door of Frankie’s on Wednesday 12th May.
Brothers Anton and Stefan Forte (Shady Pines Saloon, Baxter Inn) are behind this iconic venue which opened in late 2012. The place holds many memorys for Sydneysiders, from boozy nights where you loose track of time in the not so secret speakeasy, jumping around in the live music section to grungy band music and hours spend on the pinball machines, stuffing your face with pizza, slice by slice. Anton said, “The long-term fate for Frankie’s as we know it is out of our control, but our legacy as one of the world’s great rock bars is set in stone”, and we couldn’t agree more.
Before you tie yourselves to the venues front doors or begin protesting as you would a tree bring cut down, you still have time to make the most of Frankie’s pizza and live music. The team have decided to serve $1-a-slice pizza in happy hour until the doors close. From 4pm to 6pm every day of the week, you’ll be able to throw back cheap pizza and share your best Frankie’s shenegans stories with your mates. They’ve also mentioned adding more bands to its live music program to ensure the final 12 months of the bar is the ultimate send off. “There are still memories to be made, the biggest year in our history starts now”, says Anton.
NSW transport minister Andrew Constance has promised to relocate this iconic Sydney bar to a new location. We’ll keep you posted as soon as we find out where!
