A speakeasy. Dark, romantic, intimate. Boozy creations that were fantastic. I would never have found this place without the assistance/direction from a local, but I hope that people are searching for experiences like this. I'm sure that anyone who enjoys a good drink and great moody music to enjoy the company of your company would love this place!

Make your reservations for this sexy speakeasy and enjoy some fabulous and creative cocktails. The cocktail menu is massive, grouped by primary liquor type, and runs the flavor spectrum from sweet to spicy to smoky and beyond. The atmosphere is sexy and intimate, but reservations are required.

I was in San Francisco for a meeting and stayed at the Westin St. Francis in Union Square. I had seen this previously when taxiing to the airport. There is an intriguing sign for the Anti Saloon League, which prompted an internet search and voila, Bourbon and Branch found! Others obviously know about this wonderful establishment as I am as...

When we first arrived, there was a small line, which took away from the cloak and dagger experience. When we got inside though, the atmosphere was very dark, literally. We couldn't see where we were sitting. Once our eyes adjusted to the dim lighting, we were greeted by a well informed and friendly waitress. Our drinks were out of this... More

We found the Bourbon and Branch on Atlas Obscura and it suggested the prohibition speak easy set up for a different bar experience. We were not disappointed. I have been back twice and enjoyed the ambiance, the service and the drinks. If you go online to the web site you will be provided with an opportunity to make a reservation.... More

Ok speakeasy with good cocktails. Music is way to loud. Drop the volume and change to jazz maybe and it's a happening spot. I like the spot but feet they are trying too hard

I found this place on Trip Advisor and made a reservation for myself and three colleagues. Days later they were still talking about it and had posted and tweeted to their followers back home. The drinks are crazy expensive but well made and unique. I wouldn't go every night, but I would take out of towners there again for a... More

We booked this bar well in advance and we're excited to try somewhere different, I understand there's a password and its secret and there are two entrances, however he staff didn't seem to know which was which and sent us between the two doors twice before we were allowed in. Finally once being seat, it was nice however nothing overalls... More

This speakeasy styled bar (no food, just carefully crafted cocktails) goes all the way. The decor is intimate. The drinks are creative and varied. The cocktail list is pretty substantial, presented in a format that organizes the drinks by type (flights, over ice, fruity, etc.), and within the types, they show their takes on the classics (e.g. Manhattan's) vs. B&B...

I was recommended Bourbon and Branch by The Masses who Frequent 'Trip Advisor' as the Current Trend with 'Speakeasy' Bars has Suddenly become more Mainstream as I've been to Some Others Elsewhere in the UK and Germany. You have to make Advance Bookings in order to get 'The Password' to Enter Otherwise Likelihood is 'No Admittance'. Locating The Establishment is... More
