    NYC-Liquor Stores

    I am headed to NYC on Saturday, are there any liquor stores that have above average selections of Ryes/Bourbons? I already have Astor wine and Spirits on my radar and know about Park ave Liquors..but am looking for suggestions.

    you can check this place out. Looks good. I personally haven't been there yet, but I hope to fix that soon. http://www.bqewineandliquors.com/

    That store looks almost too good to be true, 15% off if you spend $200, Weller12 for $22, EC18 for $45...

    Your first stop should be in Brooklyn at Char No. 4, so you can try before you buy. It's 15 minutes from lower Manhattan on the F train.

    If you're going to be shopping at Astor, Warehouse Wines is nearby and worth checking out. A lot of Manhattan is overpriced, but Park Ave takes the cake.

    I am a huge fan of BQE Liquors, and I think it's the best store in the city. But some of those things are too good to be true.

    + You only get the 15% discount on things that are not already on sale, and most of the bourbons are always "on sale".
    + They don't have any EC18 left.

    But they always have Weller 12 and it really is $22.

    Thanks for the help..I am pretty sure I have a decent liquor store itinerary worked out now, just needed a few places to stop in between all the stores my wife will drag me to.

    I'll second BQE, bought some rare whiskey (not bourbon) there and they had great prices. A bit harder to get to, but well worth it if you are stocking up. Wish I knew about BQE when I actually lived in NYC!

    i went to this place when i was in town. It had an excellent range

    Warehouse Wines & Spirits


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


    That said, being a visitor from Australia, it was easy to impress me with range and prices when it came to spirits.


    I remember mentioning how cheap it was there, and one of the staff looked at me a bit shocked, and then he said "oh, you mean inexpensive" haha
