Bourbon & Branch is a glimpse back to the 1920's, the era of Prohibition, when sale of alcoho was outlawed. You'll experience the ambiance of a speakeasy that operated illegally here from 1921-33. Then, our address was listed in the Telephone Directory as "The Ipsw...
In the Library, let the bartender make you a cocktail of his own creation. They know their mixology, regardless of which room you're in.
On- and off-menu cocktails are fantastic. Watching the bartenders work was a real joy.
Cozy space with a cool vibe. Their cocktails are delicious and made with care!
Great cocktails, good atmosphere - but you need to be able to see in the dark!
Wonderful atmosphere - very romantic place, or good for a double date. Don't come here with a big group.
Old fashioned, cucumber gimlet, and Hemingway daiquiri!
You'll need a password.
The cucumber gimlet is so good!
Cocktails were honestly a bit sweet
Old Fashioneds are amazing
Among the best Old Fashioneds I've ever had. A must visit. DeDe at the Library Bar is a cocktail artist.
Fun environment, even if the secret is out. If you don't like bourbon, I recommend the Hemingway's Daiquiri.
Great flights to give you something to speak easy about.
Cocktails are great. Bar is too busy on weekends.
A San Francisco staple. Make sure you get here once and book ahead.
Great drinks, true commitment to theme and decor. Dark, wood-paneled and pretty much perfect.
Reservations needed. Extensive cocktail menu. Need to figure out how to get in the hidden bar inside Bourbon and Branch.
Do the tequila flight. Or any other flight for that matter.
Cool speakeasy w/ fantastic cocktails (especially of the bourbon variety) made by knowledgeable mixologists. Cool library-esque decor. Enter through the left-most unmarked door for general admission.
Everything! If you can, get a reservation, that way you have access to the full menu! Don't be intimidated by the menu, tell your server what kinds of things you like, and they'll steer you right!
INCREDIBLE place, a great way to end an evening! Their menu is incredibly extensive, with loads of cool cocktails on it. We tried 4 different ones and liked all of them. I would definitely come back!
The drinks are great but the pretension is overpowering. Try it but I'll wager you won't return. Plenty of friendlier cocktail bars in San Francisco.
Friendly bartenders that lack the pretension of normal speakeasy cocktail bars but still make a mean drink. Prices are reasonable given location and ambience ($10/cocktail, $6/beer).
The most intricate, legit speakeasy in SF. Get the passcode and enjoy!
So many different rooms here
Best drinks in the TL
Awesome little speakeasy. Great drinks.
Delicious hand crafted cocktails, super cool atmosphere
The bartenders are in the rude side.
State your gin preference. I asked what a particular cocktail was made with and found out the default was Gordon's.
Let me save you time. Order the Skull Island Sour.
Skull island sour is pretty much the shit;) loved it the most
Cocktail bar kinda hidden. The second room seems to be kinda VIP. Overall kinda cool!
Great atmosphere and a pretty decent selection of burbons.
Never met a more enthusiastic bartender in my life. Justin makes great cucumber gimlets
The ambience is awesome! All handcrafted cocktails. A must visit.
Try their twist on a whisky sour: the Skulll Island Sour. A bit sweeter and spicier. With the egg white, of course.
Craft cocktails. Ask your bartender for suggestions based on the base liquor or tastes you like.
Great bar and staff. Drinks are superb
Awesome vibe. Delicious food. Exciting drinks.
Amazing place and amazing cocktails. Try the 'breakfast at Annie's' or mezcalifornication.
Get a reservation and enjoy some fresh cocktails with friends
Dark and mysterious.
Nice atmosphere. I really enjoyed the secret password, hidden bar, exclusivity of it all...
