  1. Closest is probably the Varnish, behind Cole's, but you don't have to have a password or anything.
    For something more bourbon-focused but less underground, try Seven Grand.

    Seven Grand
    515 W 7th St, Los Angeles, CA 90014

    The Varnish
    118 E 6th St, Los Angeles, CA

    1. re: Chowpatty

      Add the Association to that list too.

    2. Seven Grand is terrific - more 'clubby' than Bourbon and Branch (which I also love) but just as focused on Bourbon. You might also try The Edison. It is not focused on Bourbon but its space is phenomenal, the closest thing to B&B in LA.

      1. thanks
        I look forward to giving all a try
        heard about 7 grand
        so now i must officially give it a go

        1. Seven Grand is far more "accessible" than Bourbon and Branch in every way.

          Easier to get into, bigger, and they actually have other alcohol to drink . They also have some sort of high falutin beer delivery system that keeps the draft beer ice cold. It's awesome.
