Wilson & Wilson

Nob Hill

by Jill

If you want a night of pretending you're an old-timey private detective, Maltese Falcon-style, while you indulge in carefully-crafted cocktails, Wilson & Wilson is the right place. The Wilson Detective Agency (i.e. the bar) revolves around the story of the mysterious disappearance of Ms. Lorraine Adeline Wilson whose handbag was allegedly recovered on the premises in 1952. Whether or not you have information leading to Ms. Wilson's whereabouts, a visit to Wilson & Wilson surely will not disappoint. Evening guests are greeted with an envelope bearing their name and containing secret information (i.e. the cocktail menu). Be warned: you'll be tempted to sample every expert concoction which could leaving you drunkenly believing that you really are Sam Spade.

Stop Highlights

  • Order the three drink "tasting menu" (flight) consisting of an aperitif, main and digestif for $30.
  • What you will like will depend on what poison you fancy, but in my opinion, you cannot go wrong with bourbon at the Wilson & Wilson
