Fodor's Expert Review Bourbon & Branch
Although this spot reeks of Prohibition-era speakeasy cool, it's not exclusive: everyone is granted a password, though it's highly recommended to book a reservation. 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, with cocktails leaning more in the spirit-forward direction. A speakeasy within the speakeasy called Wilson & Wilson is more exclusive, but just as funky.
