The Franklin Mortgage & Investment Company

The Franklin Mortgage & Investment Company, was a front for America’s largest alcohol running ring during prohibition. Opened for operation in the late 1920s by the legendary Philly gangster Max “Boo Boo” Hoff, The Franklin Mortgage crew ran more liquor even than the notorious Al Capone. Today, the booze is still flowing at The Franklin as we pay homage to the craft of cocktails through old school classics and our cutting-edge craft cocktail programs. It’s been over 80 years since the abolishment of prohibition, but the one thing that remains true, the best place in Philly to get a drink then and now is The Franklin Mortgage & Investment Company.
