Frankie’s March Madness Bracket Challenge!


March Madness is here ladies and gentlemen, and so is your chance to win the big bucks!

We have a hefty supply of printed brackets, so swing by either the Futian or Nanshan location and pick one up! It’s a 100 RMB buy-in and winner takes all! Make sure to write clearly…

Will Kentucky take it all? Will Duke finally pull it together and not choke in the first round? Or will my Alma Mater – Davidson College – pull out the upset of the ages?

It’s for you to decide…

Once the madness begins we will be showing a selection of games live (Eastern Standard Time Noon and 3 pm games) in addition to replays every night!

Frankie’s Houhai – Now Open (ever so softly)

Mesmerizing, eh?

Mesmerizing, eh?

If it feels like it’s been awhile since my last post, that’s because it has. Fortunately for you the reasons behind my absence are just the kind of excuses you don’t mind hearing. Particularly, Frankie’s Houhai is open! Now, we’re still in the soft opening stages, but that doesn’t mean we can’t fill you up with ice cold beer (of which there are 12 varieties on tap) and delicious food. While I’m sure you’ll love everything as is, it’ll all get even better when we hold our Grand Opening Weekend in March. So when you’re fed up with the Chinese New Year festivities that have no doubt been thrust upon you, high tail it on over to Nanshan where a brand new Frankie’s is awaiting your arrival!

Soft Opening Hours

Monday-Sunday 5PM until late (kitchen closes at 10:30PM)

Address in Chinese: 南山创业路南山茶叶城1楼A区013号-1 

Phone Number: 0755 8653 9503

Frankie’s Houhai – Coming REALLY Soon!

photo 2My oh my, dear friends. The witching hour is upon us. We’ve got the pedal to the metal. Our eyes are on the prize. We’ve got cliches for days! What I’m trying to say is, we are only days away from our GRAND…wait, no, oops, let me try that again…We are only days away from our SOFT opening :). So perhaps if you don’t have any plans this weekend and want to try something a little different (yet still quite familiar) you should head on over to Houhai and help us work out some of the kinks that come with opening a new restaurant/bar.

I’d be remiss not to mention that our Never-Before-Seen-In-Shenzhen glycol draft beer cooling system won’t be completed until Sunday. But there’s no need to worry! We’ll be serving Asahi draft and have our usual eclectic selection of bottled beers from around the globe. Additionally, we’ll be offering a smaller soft opening food menu that highlights several of our new menu items as well as some of your old favorites.

And now, without further ado, the announcement I am by far the most excited about (teeheehee, I’m giddy)…


And not only french fries, but the most delectable, mouth watering fries this town has ever tasted! So seriously, folks. Dry up those tears that accompany your fierce longing for a second Frankie’s a little closer to your abode and bring yourself to Houhai this weekend (or anytime after) and say hello to the Frankie’s family!

Here’s even an address for ya!


We can’t wait to see you!

Super Bowl Monday at Frankie’s!

Go Steelers!  Wait, what? No they didn't...Oh, so they did. Well darn.

Go Steelers! Wait, what? No they didn’t…Oh, so they did. Well darn.

It feels like just yesterday that I was writing a hilarious yet thought-provoking post about the 2014 Super Bowl Extravaganza at Frankie’s. Oh how time flies when you’re having rum…I mean fun, yep, fun. Well even though a year has passed, at least one thing remains the same – Frankie’s is still the NFL Headquarters of Shenzhen! Once again we’ll open the doors at 6:30 AM with the sweet smell of eggs, bacon, toast, taters and coffee billowing out from within our friendly confines. With HD TV’s, a big screen projector, surround sound and cheap drink specials there simply isn’t a better (and certainly not a more American) place to be on February 2, everyone’s favorite unofficial Chinese holiday - Super Bowl Monday!

To put it succinctly…

-What? Super Bowl Monday – aka Frankie’s Super Bowl Extravaganza!

-When? Monday, February 2nd at 6:30 AM.

- 60 RMB gets you a massive plate of breakfast and bottomless coffee. Yes, seconds and thirds will be available.

-20 RMB gets you an Asahi, bloody mary, mimosa or screwdriver.

-Why? Because it’s the Super Bowl!!!!!!!!!

2015 NCAA Football National Championship

Sport well, young lads!

Sport well, young lads!

Greetings and salutations my loyal college football fans! It being the National Championship game and all, I thought it would be a swell idea to open up the old Grille & Bar and put that bad boy on the big screen. So yeah, that’s what I’m going to do! Oh, you don’t believe me? I guess you’ll just have to come on down here Tuesday at 9AM and find out for yourself. The bloody mary’s will be flowing and the coffee will be guzzled, so don’t miss out on the final college football game of the year!
