Oh, you thought Wilson & Wilson was under-the-radar? Ipswich, a tiny, two-seat bar beneath a private room (Russell’s Room) within another exclusive bar (Bourbon & Branch) is the ultimate secreted hideaway. It’s difficult to get into, even with a reservation—the entryway is a trap door in the floor. There are no faux frills about this place: Ipswich used to be an actual speakeasy in the Prohibition Era. The decor has been left largely the same, save the rotating cases of booze. Make a reservation above, and cross your fingers they’ll grant you access to the secret warren below.
