Frankie’s Pizza will rock your socks off with its delicious and eccentric mix of underground bar, heavy metal live music venue and pizza shop. If the queue out the front door isn’t telling enough, the $1 pizza slices between 4-6pm will entice even the most skeptical of diners.
Prepare to be greeted by an ambient and cheerful American diner-esque bar, candles burning low. The place is decked out in dated postcards and posters, putting any polaroid wall to shame. Plunge deeper into the underground to join revellers congregating on the grungy dance floor, or wind back the clocks with Frankie’s array of pinball machines. The pizza perfectly balances a fluffy wood-fired crust with finger-licking greasiness, while the apple whiskey is a must try. Set to be demolished within the next year, don’t miss this gem hidden amongst the underground of Sydney’s late nightlife.
