WELCOME TO FRANK & FRANK UNDERGROUND!
Founders of FRANK, Mary Jordan and Priit “Julm” Juurmann, have been many things in their lives – an artist and film director, world-travelling dj and scene-defining restaurateur. Most of all they are free creative spirits. Their shared vision has landed spectacularly and suitably in the heart of Tallinn's Old Town party district. In the historic art deco building, hidden as a secret treasure in the narrow Sauna street FRANK was opened as one of the coolest vibrant metropolitan restaurants in 2014.
Presented in a clear and striking manner, the vivid and eccentric spirit of New York, London and Mumbai come alive in FRANK's impressively well-balanced interior. Like an ode to the fading area of cool grandeur. Red leather banquettes. Brass. Black lacquer. Victorian white. Gold leaf gilded signage. Whirling ceiling fan. White marble. Bentwood lounge chairs. Ancient, timeless and ultra modern at the same time.
The surprisingly extensive and egalitarian bistro menu offers comfort food - everything from a humble but perfect English breakfast to the extremely popular wiener schnitzel and divine chocolate fondant. Accessible elegance and muted glamour is the modus operandi. The crafted cocktail list and sharp bartenders with cut glass tumblers and copper cups turn this cool-lunch-perfect-dining place into the brilliantly bacchanalian late-night institution.

remains dedicated to bringing unrivaled drink quality and service. The bar is no longer a bar. It’s a stage and a theater and a discreet den. A unique-shaped lounge that’s cozy and dimly lit. It transports visitors to a chic, elegant environment with intimate booths covered in mustard leather, theater lighting and an art collection from artists from around the world. This is much more than a cocktail bar – this is a whole scene presented like the old social clubs of New York, London or Paris. A place of exposed concrete, tin ceilings, wooden floors and black shiny walls. Its an institution with counter and lounge drinking culture. From the creative minds of Mary Jordan and Priit Juurmann, this dynamic duo continues to bring their design experimentation into Tallinn creating some of the most memorable evenings and spaces. Frank Underground is open Wed-Saturday 6pm to 2am. Located on #2 Sauna Street next to Frank Bistro.
