Speakeasy vibes make for a sexy ambiance. The decor is super cool and classy.The bartenders seriously know what they're doing. The cocktails were incredibly delicious. Not much seating with a ton of people crowding around the bar made it fairly uncomfortable to wait to get a drink. But this is a really fun place to bring people who are visiting the city. Sketch neighborhood surrounding though.

The owner is a dick. Yelled at my friend for walking downstairs to find the bathroom. Drinks were watered down. Not sure what the big deal about this place... Skip it if you are deciding on a good bar in the area.

Service was really slow - 40 minutes before they took our first drinks order. but can't deny the quality of the cocktails here - well worth it.

On a not-so-recent trip to San Francisco City, I visited my friend close to midtown and he took me to this watering hole called the Bourbon & Branch. Walking in here brought ideas of what a neighborhood bar should be. Lively, a large beer collection, and some energetic staff. If I remember correctly, they have to have ordered all the types of beer at the bar. The bar food was just okay. Typical bar food.

1 star is too generous for this overrated establishment. It was Mother's day and my family decided it would be an experience to visit this speakeasy. When our drinks did not come as ordered, we sent them back and requested they be replaced. No service came to the table. The place was empty save for a few tables. After waiting for about 20 minutes my son and I located the 'manager' and server and asked for service. They were very rude when we mentioned the drinks were not what was described to us. When we asked for our credit card back, the 'manager' said 'We are the best bar in SF - so you can go f**** yourselves". We were absolutely speechless. In 35 years of corporate and personal travel all over the world we have never experiences such rudeness to patrons. The owners and real managers should be absolutely ashamed and embarrassed. BTW - to add insult to injury they actually put the charge through our cc for the drinks we returned!!

Very trendy and very old-fashioned at the same time. Extensive whiskey list (and the waitress knows what she's talking about). Very cosy & dark place. Exactly what you would expect from such a place. Loved it.

Very tasteful, down to earth relaxing place. Everyone like family. And got a phone number in the library behind the secret door. Cost is no object for the quality time and drinks.

The drinks are of high quality at Bourbon and Branch. You need a secret word to get in and that's only acquired by having a reservation. Your time there is also limited to 90 minutes, where they then move you into the "library." They go through a secret passage to the next room. The whole idea is very cute and I had some awesome drinks, particularly the Gypsy. They claim to make most of their ingredients. I would come back.
