If you want a friendly bar with locals and tourists sitting alongside each other then you have to come to Franks Bar. The cocktails, especially the Pina Coladas, are great as is a simple rum and coke. It's clearly a place where people come back year after year and Frank seems to know them all. Great value for money!

Down to earth and mello. The furthest thing from pretensious. A place where you will see locals as well as tourists. Sweet owner. Closed at some prime times but our favorite watering hole in the South Gap

Went for one drink. Junior was very welcoming, attentive, and talkative. He sat with us a little bit to give us some advice on thins to do and not do. Drinks were good, but a little too rich. For instance, I ordered a strawberry daiquiri, and a very overwhelming coconut milk flavor (like part pina colada mix). Next time I'll... More

2 for 1 cocktails and generous drink sizes together with good background music.Wayne will search for and play your favourite tracks and ensure that your glass is not empty for long. All this at rum shop prices.

We've been coming to Jan and Franks for more years than I care to remember. They don't serve food, but do serve the best cocktails, drink deals and hospitality in The Gap. You sit, have a drink, watch the world go by, chat with the guys and relax. What's not to like? Frank and Wayne, we love you guys, see... More
