  • s

I am having a party and would like to find out where the cheapest place to get liquor is in my neighborhood, the west village. i am willing to travel to chelsea and central village and will go to multiple locations to find the best deal. any thoughts?

  1. Astor Place Liquor on Broadway just off Astor Place has pretty good prices. I live in Soho and in my experience they have better prices and selection than a lot of other places in the general area.

      warehouse wines has cheap prices, it is on Bway near 8th, but not exactly sure of cross street. I like Astor better, but it is close by and you may get some good deals.

        The two are very close; I'm partial to Warehouse, just because they have my stand-by bourbon of choice - Knob Creek - for about 8 dollars less than I usually see it.

      2. Even though it's not in your neighborhood, Sherry Lehmann has excellent prices and great inventory. They offer free delivery for orders over a certain amount, probably $100 or so.

            Up on Madison Ave, sorry don't remember the cross streets. I generally figure out what I want, then call them to check inventory and price. They almost always have what I need, and their prices on wine tend to be very competitive. Their prices on champagne aren't as good, I've found, and I'm not sure about hard liquor. For example, I ordered the wine for my wedding from there--not only did they have several cases of the white I need on hand at short notice, but the price was better than anywhere else in town.

          2. Warehouse on 8th and University Place is by far the cheapest for wine in my experience.

            1. If you are looking for a place to get cheap beer, there is a wholesale-type beer place on the north side of Houston in the EV (like between A and B or B and C, I think) that is amazingly cheap and has a great selection...unfortunately I don't know the exact address or name (I think it was something boring like "Beer Warehouse")

              For wine and hard liquor, other people are right - the place on Broadway below 8th st is the cheapest, although not the best selection
