Living in Florida, my wonderful 6 "res-mates" and I went out to OK BAr almost everynite because it is directly accross the street from us...Its a taxi bar/gas station but we loved it and we got to know the owner really well...Other than that there was Square, good times on Friday and then the Pub up the road from school. Lugano is wonderful but finding a regular spot is key. Other info?? Its really expensive, Manor is amazing...they have everything but its easy to spend a ton of money there. Some of the kids that go to FC are a bit stuck up because they have so much money but you'll get that with many foreign private schools. Other than that, its a wonderful time...Highly recommended :)

Lugano is a very touristy town, and although Franklin students are around, they don't dominate the social scene. Piccinaya is probably the best club, the best gelato is sold at the little postcard/souvenir stand lake front, and downstairs at Manor has the best sandwiches at a reasonable price.

Etnics is a great place to eat at night. Cheap and filling. I also loved going to Club Lido and Square Discoteca. There are great pizza places all over as well, especially the Turkish pizza place in Alba housing!
