Bourbon & Branch

There aren't phones allowed, but my server let me sneak a photo in on our way out.

Bourbon & Branch Review

The address and phone are unlisted, the black outer door unmarked, and when you make your reservation (required), you get a password for entry. In short, Bourbon & Branch reeks of Prohibition-era speakeasy cool. It's not exclusive, though: everyone is granted a password. The place has sex appeal, with tin ceilings, bordello-red silk wallpaper, intimate booths, and low lighting; loud conversations and cell phones are not allowed. The menu of expertly mixed cocktails and quality bourbon and whiskey is substantial, though the servers aren't always authorities. Your reservation dictates your exit time, which is strictly enforced. There's also a speakeasy within the speakeasy called Wilson & Wilson, which is more exclusive, but just as funky.
