It has an awesome restored feel, with a stage in the second story space for a band. It opened in August to huge fanfare (seriously, they shut down Main Street) and its neon sign is a local icon.
I've been to two events at Gray's, and what has impressed me most is its craft cocktails. They have some that are very strong (not fruity cocktails) and everything is just beautifully done. Mixology at its finest!
On my most recent visit, I found my new favorite: the Mae Love Mule. It's basically a Moscow Mule, but the Gray's version is Batavia Arrack, Belle de Brillet pear, lime, and Fever Tree ginger beer. It was simultaneously delicious and refreshing! I love how it's served in the traditional copper mug too.

It's a uniquely Franklin spot, and definitely a place I'll bring my family when we're walking around downtown.
