Speakeasies in Civic Center / Tenderloin Overview

Brenda's French Soul Food - Bistro | Restaurant in Civic Center / Tenderloin, SF

The Civic Center and Tenderloin districts fuse a cool underground scene with a gritty urban landscape. Tenderloin specifically pays homage to its past in the form of some speakeasy spots that are sure to make one feel like it’s the 1920s all over again.

Two of the best speakeasies in San Francisco are in Tenderloin: Bourbon & Branch, and Wilson and Wilson Private Detective Agency (the latter being accessible through the former). Reservations are a must at these swanky establishments. Patrons even receive special passwords to gain entry.

Bourbon & Branch has the distinction of operating in a location that actually was an illegal drinking den. It operated as JJ Russell's Cigar Shop from 1921 to 1933, defying prohibition laws. The venue still sports an unmarked door, secret passageways, hidden rooms, and old-timey swing tunes. Through one of those unmarked doors is Wilson and Wilson Private Detective Agency, a more intimate Tenderloin speakeasy where guests make their way through a dark, winding hallway to a small bar area where some of the city’s most impressive mixologists create hand-crafted cocktails from scratch.
