In 2007, Brooklyn native Matthew Roff and Anatoly Dubinsky came across the rundown, dilapidated Crown Heights garage (above left) that became Phase 1 of the Franklin Park complex. It opened in April of 2008. In the years since, Franklin Park has expanded by creating a second bar that is three times the size of the first as well as a restaurant, Dutch Boy Burger, while kickstarting a burgeoning bar-and-restaurant scene on Franklin Avenue.
We are located on St. Johns Place between Franklin and Classon Aves. There is ample outdoor and indoor space, DJs take over on weekends, and our game room features video games, a photo booth, and a ping pong table. Our reading series happens at 8 p.m. on the second Monday of every month. We have a Trivia Night every Wednesday at 9.
Most of our beer lines rotate seasonally, so we tend to have something for almost any palate all year round. We do, however, have a few staples that stay on all year, such as Smuttynose IPA and Guinness. Make sure to check back on FranklinParkBrooklyn.com to see what special events we have coming up!
Franklin Park and Dutch Boy Burger use Green Mountain Energy, the nation’s longest-serving renewable energy retailer.
