    Places to Buy/Drink Bourbon in Chicago

    Hi Chi-Towners or Frequenters,
    Aside from Binny's and aside from Delilah's where are the other good places to make purchases and grab a cheap taste?

    Near me:
    Sheridan 'L' Liquors has a decent selection in my neighborhood.

    Rock's on Broadway does Bourbon Nights, but I am not sure about prices (also in my neighborhood).

    Elsewhere:
    Andersoville Wine and Spirits, Printer's Row Wine Shop, and West Lakeview Liquors are good, but I have not checked prices against Binny's yet.

    Have not been to:
    House of Glunz , Warehouse, or Lush stores

    Thanks.
    -Guy Debord

    Hi Guy,

    Evanston First Liquors has a nice selection, but the Evanston sin tax is a bitch. Not far from you, on Davis St., just west of L stop.

    Liquor Barn selection some times rivals Binny's. Closest one to you is on Golf Rd. in Niles, a bit of a challenge if you don't have wheels. (It's also not far from the Binny's on Milwaukee Ave.)

    Don't often stumble into a bar that has a bourbon I haven't already tried.

    Cheers,
    Charlie

    Thank you. Just what I was looking for. I love Delilah's, but don't make it down there as much as I want to. Best juke box in Chicago too, hands down.

    Thanks Guy.
    For shopping: I'd reaffirm Warehouse, they have some great Barrel Selections. Longman and Eagle have a lot of call brands at a fair price and make some great cocktails. Bub City downtown has their own barrel of OWA that is nice same with their 4r barrel and a lot of bourbon, the prices are downtown though. You can find some gems on the shelf at places like Sable. In the next year expect to find a lot of Bars doing barrel selections, it will be a fun hunt for all of us to taste them.
    Bourbon only requires a glass.
