MELBOURNE | Bad Frankie is a small bar in Fitzroy that showcases an impressive range of boutique Australian spirits and complements them with the iconic Aussie jaffle. It’s a simple proposition, and one that works very well. The bar is small and casual, with polished concrete floors, wooden seating, a bar section with stools on one side and tables and seats on the other. Low warm lighting completes the cozy, warm feeling. It’s the kind of bar that owner Seb Costello likes to imagine would have existed during the early 20th century.

All of the 18 or so cocktails use only Australian spirits and feature native Australian ingredients, which make Bad Frankie unique amongst Melbourne’s many bars. The Salt Bush Billy Tea combines hot water, saltbush, tea, sugar, and Gun Alley whisky, while the Golden Flip features 666 Butter Vodka with Tambourine Mountain Distillery wattle toffee liqueur, toffee and an egg, and is served with toasted black wattle seed. You can of course enjoy the various spirits straight or with mixers as you please.

Jaffle flavours include things like ‘Jaffle Supremo’, which includes all the toppings on a Supreme from Pizza Hut, ‘Bangers and Mash’, featuring pork sausage, onion jam, and wholemeal bread on the underside
and mash on top, served with gravy, and our favourite, the ‘Lamington’ – chocolate soaked sponge cake filled with jam, rolled in coconut, and served with thickened cream. It’s all very delicious.

Oh and if you’re wondering where the name ‘Bad Frankie’ comes from, well the governor of Van Diemen’s Land, John Franklin, outlawed small pot stills in the early 19th Century, a law that passed into national law when Australia became a nation. The result was that no small batch independent spirits could be made in Australia, and wasn’t overturned until 1992 thanks to one Bill Lark,of Lark Distillery of course.
