3 Reasons to Visit Franklin Village

There are a ton of reasons to visit Franklin Village, but here are three of our faves. Plus, they are all on the same block!

Reason #1: Birds



Birds is a charming lunch and dinner restaurant with a great happy hour!

Enjoy sitting at a table or booth, with inside and outside options. You can also sit at the bar, which gives you a front row seat if you’re looking for a place to watch the big game. It’s very affordable, but never loses the taste quality throughout the menu!


Top Menu Picks:

The Chicken Tortilla soup is fantastic! Not as spicy as you might think, but still excellent!


Reason #2: The Bourgeois Pig


The Bourgeois Pig is a little hidden coffee shop at the end of the block. With a cool and calm vibe, you can find students and entrepreneurs working away just about every day until 2:00am. Since this shop is opened late, there’s plenty of coffee and tea options to help keep you on track.

Top Menu Picks:

The Green Tea Iced Chai, and Lemon Cake are both fantastic! Not too sweet, and the perfect treat for all your hard work!




Reason #3: Upright Citizens Brigade – Franklin


Originally created by some of the country’s tops comedians like Amy Poehler, Upright Citizens Brigade is home to a training and performing company of improvisers and sketch writers.

Top Show Picks:

UCB has multiple shows every night of the week. We are big fans of the musical improv teams, along with long form. Plenty of famous alums are on the lineup, or drop by to play in a show!
