Where to buy liquor?

I'm going to be visiting Manhattan soon, could somebody please point me towards some good liquor? I'm from Ontario, where we can't buy quality Mezcal; I was hoping to bring back a bottle of that. Anywhere that has a good selection of fine liquors would serve me well.

  1. Try Astor Wines &'s their Mezcal page:

      1. re: notsochubbychubette

        Sherry Lehman is excellent for wine, especially the better ones like bourdeaux and burgundy, but doesn't do so well with the hard stuff.

      2. Second Astor Wine & Spirits.Best combination of selection and price that I have come across in Manhattan.

          1. re: financialdistrictresident

            Warehouse Wines has a large selection of liquor:

            735 Broadway
            New York, NY 10003-6810
            (212) 982-7770

            Not sure if they have a website. It's a "no frills" kind of place.

          2. If you're in the Astor/Warehouse area, another place worth checking out is Bowery & Vine (on Bowery, just south of the Whole Foods). A smaller selection than the other two, but they make it count.

            And once you're there, it's a short walk to New Beer Distributors on Chrystie Street. Hundreds of beers that you're not likely to find elsewhere.
