The team behind Frank’s Italian American Social Club opens Frank’s Records, a seductive new lounge in Central Hong Kong.
An institution in the making, Frank’s Italian American Social Club has long been one of the most popular watering holes on Hong Kong Island’s Wyndham Street. The creation of Red Sauce Hospitality, the martini and meatballs joint now has a new sibling, one that shakes off the Little Italy vibe and replaces it with something straight out of Brooklyn.
Frank’s Records, located on the 7th floor of the same building, is a cocktail bar that doubles as a music lounge specializing in hip-hop on vinyl. Intimate and exclusive (making it perfect for private events), the sexy new spot is centred around a 12-person cocktail bar. You’ll also find listening stations with custom-built turntables as well as arguably the city’s most extensive vinyl collection of hip-hop records.
Like Frank’s Italian downstairs, the menu at Frank’s Records focuses on Italian-American favourites reinterpreted – think tasty treats like a mortadella crostini with mozzarella and pistachio sambal; and the mouth-watering smoked sardine crostini with roasted pepper and saffron aioli, or perhaps a porchetta panini stuffed with provolone, roasted garlic aioli, broccolini pesto, and giardiniera.
For non-meat groovers, there’s the charred broccolini and homemade mozzarella panini or the grilled three-cheese panini slathered with black truffle honey. Fancy.
The beverage program focuses on high balls and martinis (naturally), plus a range of red, white and rose wines and prosecco and champagne.
Don’t forget to tip out some of that bubbles for your homies.
