A very cool speakeasy that lives up to the hype of being one of the best bars in America. It also apparently is one of the oldest and even possibly existed during the prohibition. What makes this place cool is the exclusivity, I reserved a table in the main bar a couple months in advance for my bday and it wasn't until a few days before did I receive my password to get in. Although located in the ghetto TLoin, once inside the interior is astonishingly opulent. We got a booth that comfortably fitted 4 for intimate conversation (one of the rules is that you have to be quiet- and also no photography sadly). They had a wealth of whiskey drinks that ranged from strong to refreshing. I tried 3-4 of the cocktails and all were pretty good! They don't have much options besides bourbon, so if you're not a bourbon fan this is not the place for you. For true speakeasy fans there's other separate bars inside, but it's rare/difficult to get access to them (check out Thrillist's article.) Good luck getting in those!

Neat speakeasy feel.. you have to plan ahead if you want to go into the "secret room".. the cocktails were ok.. my old fashioned had too much sugar in it

Mixed feelings. As a 1920's themed bar, it nailed it. Its product is great. The downfall is the anti-technology policy. People go out to drink and socialize which in a modern sense involves a phone. If you want to limit the use of technology in certain settings such as movie theaters, great. But please don't ask someone to put away their phone the second someone in the bar goes to reply to a text message or takes a group photo. It seemed to be an ongoing frustration amongst the bar patrons that evening.

Speakeasy style bar with ample seating and impressive drink selection. The knowledgable bar staff will make you a cocktail that will definitely suit your drink style. My only complaint is that it feels more like it's in the style of a speakeasy than being a proper speakeasy, and perhaps is drawing on the appeal of people thinking, "This place doesn't have a sign, and it has a password, therefore it must be cool". Spoiler, they'll tell you the daily password...

Our group ordered five different drinks. Everyone agreed that all five were all pretty good. The booths are a little small and the lights dim, but there was plenty of noise. The hostess was very patient with our party, not snooty at all. She went through the menu and suggested some drinks for us.Make a reservation in advance in order to get a table and a passcode.

So disappointing... My best friend made us reservations two weeks in advance for Christmas Eve. The reservation was confirmed and we even received an email with the password and house rules. Unfortunately, when we showed up instead of cocktails we received a long stand in the cold December weather with 20 other strangers. While the hoard of us wondered why they weren't answering the secret speakeasy door, it became quite obvious that they were closed on Christmas Eve and neglected to tell all of their guests. Be warned, they had reservations available for Christmas Day too, which I'm sure will result in another batch of poor souls standing on the cold side walk wasting their holiday. Merry Christmas Bourbon & Branch. Thanks for the heads up.

Sweet spot with talented bartenders. I was only in the "secret room" but it was pretty cool. Hand crafted drinks and a bartender that can make just about anything. Trendy, dark, sweet bookcases lining the walls. Definitely unique.

A true whiskey lovers paradise. Behind every secret corridor lies a mixing master trained in the art of transforming alcohol into a tantalizing experience. You simply must visit.
