Branch Whiskey Bar.
Branch proves that you don’t need a dark dive-y corner to fully appreciate whiskey. Its crisp lines and airy space provide a respectable spot to sample from over 50 whiskeys, bourbons & scotches, including two from Japan. Sip something neat, handpick a flight of three, or get straight to business with the workingman’s deal: $5 for a shot of Jim Beam and an Old German tall boy. Daily hot specials and simple bistro eats like a tuna confit sandwich or grilled asparagus with house-cured bacon almost make your day drinking seem refined. I said almost.
