the mixologists here are gods. it is a speakeasy and the drinks are fabulous and i had never heard of half of them. the menu is extensive and the prices are not bad....$12-15 per drink and worth it! when you book, you have to choose the amount of time you will be there. the drinks come slowly as they are mixed carefully. for 2 drinks it will take 1 1/2 hours easily. they call you on the day of your reservation and give you the password. it's easy enough to find but not in the best neighborhood ....on the edge of the tenderloin. cabs are not easy to get when you leave.

We did not really know what to expect here. We were given a secret password and told it was required. With no real sign on the outside and a really bad area of town, it was hard to know what to think. Pounded on the door and gave the password and entered a different world. Costumes dating back in time escorted us back though a hidden doorway in time. The bar was excellent and full of class. Drinks, traditional and very fancy. Bartender over the top and extremely professional in his craft. This was a great experience and something totally surprising for the area. Try this, you won't be sorry.

Yale Harvard. That was the password my boyfriend and I had to tell the voice behind the door in order to get in to the secret bar. I felt like I was in an episode of Boardwalk Empire, as the hostess unlocked the door to let us in to a secret dimly lit room where the bartender would craft us our lovely cocktail.
The cocktails are extremely creative where only a true mixologist would be able to make them!
I would highly recommend Bourbon and Branch when visiting San Francisco!

Whilst visiting relatives on a trip to San Francisco from the UK this place was reccomended to us as THE place to go for whiskey cocktails.
As an avid fan of quality service and cocktails, bourbon and branch didn't disappoint. Some might say it's a bit showy but surely that's the foundation of their business. My wife and I loved the theatre of the password entrance, the low level lighting and relaxed atmosphere. You only get a limited time and the list is huge but it worked out we could squeeze two amazing drinks in each. Considering the location and the quality we expected to pay a lot more than we did and, compared to similar quality bars in London, it's about a third of what you'd pay!
Can't reccomended this enough.
