You need a password, a reservation- to be admitted to Bourbon & Branch. The San Francisco speakeasy is the ideal punctuation to nice dinner. I induldged in a Cucumber Vodka Gimlet, others in Bourbon-based cocktails that involved flaming oranges. The cocktails flowed in consistently excellent quality. While the crowd appeared fairly young, it was diverse. Deeply muddled light and light gusts from the door omitting patrons offered a sexy air. It's nice to have a friend in the city, to lead you down these hidden paths of pleasure.
