Bourbon & Branch’s Reservation-Only Bar

There are times when a drink will do.

Other times, you want a good cocktail, some elbow room and your bartender’s undivided attention.

We’re happy to report that the guys from Bourbon & Branch have responded...

Behold The Wilson, a reservation-only, password-protected bar hidden inside an already-elusive bar, opening next week at Bourbon & Branch and taking reservations now.

Think of this as your regular B&B experience with a hefty dose of fine-dining hospitality. Once you make your online reservation (up to two people, for up to two hours), you’ll get a confirmation and password that you’ll use at the main door, whereupon you’ll be escorted into the long, narrow room to your seats.

The Wilson (named after a missing woman whose bloodstained purse was found in the walls during construction) still has the same 1920s Prohibition vibe as B&B. So you’ll feel right at home amidst the damask and exposed brick walls.

At your seat, you’ll find a personalized, date-stamped menu printed with your name—no two visits are alike. It’s arranged like a three-course prix fixe of cocktails, with an aperitif, a main and a digestif or punch. Of course, you can mix and match your drinks—or stick with the tobacco/bourbon/coffee Pinkerton.

And since there are three bartenders for only 20 guests, you’ll get plenty of face time for an in-depth conversation about the ins and outs of tobacco tinctures.
