It all did end badly for Max, but in his heyday, he was one of the richest gangsters in town and his legacy is The Franklin Mortgage and Investment Company. Thank goodness, alcohol is legal in this day and age, so Jason and Jon, General Manager & Head Bartender respectively, can do their job without fear of the cops rushing in at any moment..unless it’s to enjoy one of their very legal beverages.


Hello everyone - Don't get confused! Before there was Lush Life, there was Best Sips Worldwide, I rebranded after the first season. Although I reference Best Sips – it’s Lush Life through and through – the same great guests, the same music, and the same me! 


Snuck in between two unprepossessing buildings on 18th street, near lovely Rittenhouse Square, The Franklin Mortgage and Investment Company knocks the socks out of anyone who ventures inside. On the cutting-edge of cocktail creation, their drinks program is constantly changing and developing. Leading the way are Jason & Jon who came to hospitality in totally different, but equally exciting, ways!

Always remember the wise words of Oscar Wilde, “All things in moderation, including moderation,” and always drink responsibly!
