    A gin-infused true crime storytelling event at Frank Macs “Gin-drinking is the worst form of drunkenness I know of ” said the head of the Hotels Union in 1914 “it is the biggest curse in all of Sydney just now.” Join Sydney crime historian Max Burns-McRuvie for a specialty true crime and cocktails event that brings to life notorious stories of vice, murder and mayhem connected with the curse of cheap gin drinking that once plagued Sydney and London. Frank Macs’ new event series will awaken the outrageous origins of this infamous spirit and reimagine the drunken Gin Craze of 18th century of London where daily drams of “Mother’s Ruin” created a chaotic crime-wave that colonial cities like Sydney would soon inherit.

    We had the bottomless brunch for 89 per person which was really alcohol which and antipasto platers - mostly bread and humus and some cold cuts. They were not prepared for our dietary requirements specified during the booking and the alternative was to make a garden salad. The Bellini cocktail was nice... not the gin. The menu options are super basic. So overall not good value.

    We booked for after dinner drinks, and got a cosy nook upstairs. There was live music, the musician was fantastic but the speaker/noise level made it hard to have a conversation with our friends unless we sat close together. Staff very friendly and cocktails were great. I had a Queen of the Rocks. Took a little long to get our drinks as the barman appeared a bit swamped with the amount of orders as he seemed to be the only barman on duty. Great ambience though with outdoor seating too.

    Service was too and staff were not very friendly. We had to follow up three times on a drink order only to be told about 30 minutes later one of the gins we had ordered had run out.

    Had a pretty rough experience. Table QR code menu didn’t have the items in the menu to order. Placed our order with a brand new staff member and it was wrong and martinis were awful. They were replaced but overall it was just poor. Wouldn’t recommend.

    The bartender explained they were running low on certain sotck and couldn't produce all drinks, including one we ordered - that was totally fine I understand supply chain issues are happening. However, the alternative drinks we were made were not very good, mine with so much kaffir lime it tasted soapy and not at all sweet (I had specifically requested a sweet drink), and the old fashioned seemed to have no sugar at all. The arancini were under fried and a little stodgy. We love doss house and were hoping for a better experience, it is a nice venue but the courtyard out the back has people smoking in it (not as part of frank macs, but the adjacent venue) which is rather unpleasant.

    We ordered 4 times from the app at our table. 3 of those 4 times, the waitstaff came to our table to let us know that what we'd ordered from a very limited menu of items was out of stock. Of the gins we ordered, one was delicious. One took 45 minutes and two reminders to finally arrive. The venue was only 1/3 full so I can't understand what went wrong. The staff were friendly & trying their best. Failures were in management.

    The staff had some technical issues and it took greater than 20 minutes to receive our drinks and food. We wouldn’t have minded if we been kept informed, but we had to ask several times what was happening. In the end we enjoyed our drinks and were given a discount

    Poor service. We were literally sitting in front of the bar and they forgot our order, took ages to prepare drinks, stumbled past us as it is such a cramped space, one waiter accidentally poured water in my cocktail, music was ridiculously loud and they repeatedly asked if we’d paid after we paid.

    Visited as a group of 4 for my wife's birthday and absolutely loved every little thing about the place. The lounge area downstairs was homely and cosy and felt like chilling in someone's home. The service was amazing and couldn't commend our server more, she was great. The cocktails were next level epic, some many really unusual flavour combinations. They were like Disneyland on the palate. Anyone a fan of The Doss House will likely love Frank's. Can't wait to return.

    Gorgeous downstairs courtyard tucked away amongst the sandstone. Saturday night had live acoustic music upstairs that was brilliantly piped downstairs via speakers so although you couldn’t see the musicians, you still got the live music vibe. Super friendly and attentive staff. Excellent gin list!

    We were seated downstairs inside in a cute little corner. Live soulful music was playing, not too loud but enough to bop along & appreciate. I love my gin & the selection was amazing, if you are a lover of gin you definitely need to come & check this bar out … staff were so welcoming & friendly, a thoroughly enjoyable night. We will be back!

    Great venue, prices are fair, did not try the food, nothing on the menu that wanted me to snack on. Drinks did not come with a drink napkin, which for a high end bar such as Frank Mac you think there would be. I had outside table which was good but music was a just a tad loud for this area, would recommend inside looked more inviting

    Booked to sit at the bar but when we arrived, we were told it was reserved. I mentioned we had selected the bar reservation and the host had to arrange to accomodate- this took awhile. Despite sitting at the bar- it took us ages to get the attention of the bartenders to take our orders. We only managed to sample 3 drinks over the course of 2 hours. Some of their signature gin cocktails were overpriced for a small pre-mixed sample. The Irish coffee cocktail was good. Lots of waiters running around yet little service. I understand they just opened but it was quite chaotic- lots of dropped glasses and little mistakes. We went to the pub down the road after and had a much better time.
