The former Port Carling Surf Club, a 1960’s speakeasy famous for it’s live music & penny arcade games was reincarnated in the Spring of 2015 under it’s longstanding nickname “Frankies Surf Club.”
Frankies is the brainchild of Toronto restaurateurs Ian McGrenaghan & Colin Tooke (Grand Electric + Electric Mud BBQ) alongside Micah Cameron (former women’s fashion director for the Hudson’s Bay Company.) When the trio decided to pool their talents together under one roof the end result became a hybrid between a super cool lakeside cocktail, coffee + juice bar and a multi-brand lifestyle boutique. Together they bring an impeccably curated selection of brands ranging from locally roasted coffee to some of the most sought after designer clothing lines in the world. All of which are carefully chosen with quality, sustainability and design aesthetic in mind.
This past winter Frankies Surf Club travelled down to Tulum, Mexico for their first of many pop up shops. Because Frankies flagship is seasonal, they will continue to “pop up” over the winter months in different destination spots all over the world.
