A bar named 739 Franklin opened exactly two weeks ago on Franklin Avenue, near the corner of Sterling Place. I Love Franklin Avenue has already covered it extensively. When we checked it out yesterday, we learned that it is a neighborhood bar owned by nearby residents who are looking to evolve depending on what their clientele would like to see offered. There are four beers on tap, but specialty cocktails are the main order of the day; there are happy hour specials ($4 pints) and food will eventually be served. There are a couple more photos of the space on the jump. It has a large back room with a projection screen, and events such as movie nights will be a regular feature.
