Was East Fremont ever considered as a potential location ?

I understand the good mayor was providing discounted liquor licenses to encourage business growth in that area. Don't get me wrong, I like the idea that Frankie's isn't being built in a casino shopping mall, but East Fremont would have been consistent with the retro theme of a tiki bar. It's already the location of two of the coolest (albiet very different) bars in LV - Atomic Liquors and Downtown Cocktail Room. It would also have been in convenient stumbling distance of the the best old school casino/hotel in LV - the El Cortez. East Fremont has the potential to be a great mid-century boutique area (like Palm Springs and South Beach on a smaller scale) with all of the existing motels from that era.

Just asking.

Yes, I know. I'm assuming an East Fremont location was considered. I'm just curious why it didn't work out. I'm guessing the "old" Frankie's was too perfect of a starting point (both from a historic and architecture stand-point). Oh well, I guess if I ever need to visit a hospital in Vegas, I know which one to go to.

There's a guy on East Fremont who lives in a defunct refrigerator, maybe they should have talked to him before making any serious long term business plans.

The Wifie & I just got back from the Private Grand Opening and I gotta tell ya that FRANKIE'S IS DA BOMB!!! I just posted a photo in the "Other Events" topic if ya wanna see a li'l bit of the inside...

It's super easy to get to from the Strip: take the Strip to Charleston & make a Left. You'll pass the Best Antique Mall in Vegas, The Charleston Antique Mall (where my Tiki Shop is!) on the left side (sorry, couldn't resist). You'll go under the freeway, pass Carl's Jr., and you'll see Frankie's just up the road on Right side of the street about 1/2 mile next to a Rebel Gas Station & across the street from Wendie's.

Don'tcha DARE miss it next time ya come to Vegas!

The place looks amazing. Super impressed with all the effort and art that has gone into this place.

Knowing my experiences in Vegas I really hope that everything is well secured to the walls and floors

Can not wait to see it in person. Will make the tradeshow I have to attend in February ALOT more enjoyable!

Congrats and much success!!

Tip of the Mai Tai glass to everyone involved with this project. Thank You.

How exciting to see the latest pics and read from those who have witnessed Frankie's metamorphosis first hand.

I know where I'll be spending some time during Christmas holiday this year - VEGAS BABY!!

See you there (sometime soon I hope.)
