Bourbon & Branch
Civic Center/Tenderloin
  • A Slice of History

    Bourbon & Branch is a piece of San Francisco history. Dating back to the Prohibition era, it has a secret entrance, a library room, and some of the city's best mixologists. Every morning, the bartenders forage through the local Farmers Markets in search of the freshest and most unusual produce for the evenings market fresh cocktails.

  • House Rules

    Since 1921, Bourbon & Branch has been creating inventive cocktails from its secretive Tenderloin spot. The bar has kept to its roots with a set of "house rules" that include: speak-easy, no cell phones, and don't even think of ordering a "cosmo."

  • Pick Your Poison

    The cocktail list is divided into five categories: champagne cocktails, the classics, from here and around the world, Bourbon & Branch favorites, and market fresh cocktails. Or tell your bartender what you like and have him customize a personal cocktail just for you.

Pro Tip

Nearly 100 years later, the place is still packed to the brim so make sure to book a reservation in advance. Parties of 4 tend to work best.

In true speakeasy fashion, B&B does require a password for entrance (it's “books”).

Pro Tip

"Make sure to book reservations for a private table for you and your guests. Why? Because you get a much larger selection of specialty cocktails that are not available at the Library."
