Where to buy liquor?

graydyn Jun 30, 2009 02:00 PM

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.

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

            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.

            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.
