We had a themed birthday party here and it did not disappoint. I really loved the vibe here and we all had a blast. I look forward to coming back

Went to Wilson and Wilson here after seeing it online as one of the best places to go. This bar is within the Tenderloin area which in itself is not great so best to get a cab there and back. You have to book and it gives the allure therefore as a selective place, the cocktails were nice, bit overpriced... More

Awesome place for a casual drink. No reservation actually needed but knowing the password helps get you in.

Pretentious speakeasy slightly hard to find. Make sure you are paying attention or you will walk past. Great cocktails

We entered through a fake bookcase and the drinks were amazing. I would especially recommend the Moscow Mule and any other drink!

You have to get a hold of them via email and they give you a password to get in. Its dimly lit has really cool décor, its a mellow vibe. Everyone is chatting and enjoying their drinks, which they only have a few. Which really doesn't matter because they are all good. If you're that person that likes to be... More

My husband and I are calling this "the bar for introverts". We made reservations and stopped by on our recent anniversary weekend celebration. We thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and "speaking easy" in the dimly lit corner table we were given to enjoy our drinks. The drinks are priced well and there is a wonderful variety of "old-school" cocktails available. Our... More

A lot of hype drew us into this place. The whole "Speakeasy" idea is kind of cool; you are given a password by text or email and then show up at the reserved time. But the inside is nothing much to speak of -- very dark, gigantic drink menu that is difficult to read, and the service is only so-so.... More

My wife, daughter and her husband all visited on a Saturday night in January. It's not too hard to find as some might lead you to believe. Just look for the "anti-saloon league" sign on the corner. The imposing bouncer by the unmarked door will tell you you're in the right place. One of servers comes to the door, takes... More
