Home Details for 109 Franklin Street
This historic building has so much potential and so many possibilities! Renovated with passion and love, it’s ready for the right person to take over. Built by the Elks in 1908, the first territorial legislature convened here in 1913. It remained the Elks Lodge until 2006 when it was converted to a restaurant and bar with a ballroom for event space. It has a historic plaque memorializing its State history and an Elk embedded in the terrazzo floor. A great space to host a number of different events, this venue has three floors, two commercial kitchens, a walk-in freezer, two walk-in coolers and substantial storage space. Especially valuable in downtown Juneau, there is a private unpaved 8-space parking lot directly behind the building. The first floor electric and plumbing was completely updated to code in 2013. New electric and plumbing will allow future renovations to be mostly cosmetic and reduce overall building maintenance. The first floor, accessed from South Franklin street is 7,694 square feet and is configured with a beautifully remodeled dining area, custom bar, three handicap accessible restrooms, a commercial kitchen and a private function room tucked behind the bar. The second and third floor are accessed by an internal staircase. The second floor is 7,182 square feet and contains a large ballroom with the original hardwood dance floor and 22-foot original tin ceiling (currently hidden by a drop ceiling). On this floor you will also find the second commercial kitchen, a bar, and vast storage area. The third floor is a mezzanine area with a 3/4 bath, two bedrooms and a living space, perfect for housing entertainment groups or staff seasonally or year-round. In addition to the building, there is a Beverage Dispensary bar license and a large amount of commercial kitchen and dining property available for purchase.
