If the giant Space Invaders mural and the chandelier made of recycled Coca-Cola crates weren't enough of a giveaway, the Franklin is a little bit different. On the ground floor, this funky city pub serves up tasty bar food like hot dogs, schnitties and wings alongside craft brews and cocktails in its quirky front bar, while upstairs seven uniquely designed rooms offer a cosmopolitan pad to sleep it all off in. Painted a chic charcoal with bright glossy yellow doors and rustic wood panelling, rooms range from deluxe to premium, and each comes with its own Nespresso machine, fridge and iPod dock, decorated with original artworks by local artists.

Time Out tip: Hungry? The Frank's Hot Dogs are the star of the bar, made with Barossa Valley snags and a range of toppings. Grab any dog and a can for $21, and enjoy it in the beer garden before disappearing upstairs for a nap in your comfy queen bed.
