    The name "Branch Water" refers to the final step in the process of bottling whiskey. Asking for a "bourbon and branch" is equivalent to ordering a whiskey and water.

    This place is amazing- from food to bar to waitstaff, all great! Word to the wise tho- DO NOT try to book a party here for the private room because Julia will ruin your Branch Water opinion, so bad :(

    One of the best happy hour spots in the city. Are you freaking kidding me? $2 bombshell blonde? $2 Brooklyn Lager? $3 daily whiskey specials? Consistent food and well thought out menu. Yay!
