We are so excited that Downtown Tampa is getting a new addition this summer. Franklin Manor, a social drinkery with live music and an outdoor patio, will be home to an awesome new food spot called The Carriage House. Founded by the owners of Salt Block Catering Co., our favorite local caterers, The Carriage House will be a vintage carriage out on the patio of Franklin Manor serving up tasty treats from 4pm to close six days a week.

A delicious frozen cocktail  (Shoutout to Grand Brand & Co. for the amazing branding)

We were lucky enough to be invited out to Glazer’s Children’s Museum a few weeks back to taste some of their upcoming creations and let’s just say….It’s gonna be HUGE! The team at Salt Block Catering Co. has created some great tasting easy bar food to enjoy late night out on the patio of Franklin Manor. We are going to hold back on typing a bunch of text because the pictures literally speak for themselves. The food is amazing and we are so excited for them to join Downtown Tampa as a late night spot.

We also got to try the tacos, their fancy popcorn, and some other special things to come 🙂 All in all, we are so excited for the opening of Franklin Manor and Carriage House this summer. We will see you at on the patio, enjoying a cocktail and some handhelds in a few weeks.
