How A hospitalityTrader Found A Niche and Pivoted His Bar Business!

New bar brings flavours of Mexico to region, helps restore Picton’s Argyle St to former glory!

Staff at a new bar in Picton are hoping to entice more people to the country town, using the power of Mexican food and tequila.

The Frank and Blanco bar, on Argyle St, is a first for the area, and one of the first new shops to open in Picton since Argyle St was devastated by storms in June last year.

Staff said they hoped the bar would help drive tourism to the recovering township.

“With flair, banter, music, and excellent food and cocktails, we love what we do as a team and want to share this on a wider scale,” functions manager Therese Smith said.

“As a tequila bar, we are trying to bring more tourism and variety to the Macarthur region, and hope to create a place that appeals to all ages and types of people.

“We’ve had a really good start and people seem intrigued by our atmosphere and what we have on offer.”

The Picton resident said staff had been working with local businesses and suppliers, and were busy preparing a new menu, to be released later this month.

Current menu favourites include chorizo tacos with guacamole, mango salsa, coriander lime aioli and micro herbs, as well as spiced pulled pork quesadillas with sriracha aioli, tasty cheese, pico de gallo, lime and micro herbs.

Ms Smith said the bar wouldn’t be complete without its signature tequila cocktails.

“The hibiscus cooler is probably our most popular drink, especially among the ladies,” she said.

The cotton candy-coloured beverage is created using tequila reposado, apple, lemon, hibiscus and fresh mint, but there are plenty of other options on the menu.
