Buying SMW in NYC

Postby Knolly » Sun Dec 27, 2009 8:16 am

Hey East Coasters!

I'm spending a week in NYC and will have a bit of time to hunt out a bottle or two of SMW. Of course, I have heard about Park Ave Liquors, so I will definitely stop by (actually already did today, but they had closed by the time I arrived).

However, I'm guessing that they are not the only retailer in the area? Does anyone have good suggestions in the Manhattan area where to look for SWM?

I'm looking for interesting bottles - that doesn't have to mean collectible, but something other than standard bottles that I would find at most liquor stores such as limited edition OBs, IBs, cool OBs that aren't widely available...

Thanks in advance - cheers!

Bleecker Liquors on Lexington Ave near 45th St.
Imperial Wine/Liquors at Hudson & Bank St.
Astor Wine on Lafayette & 4th St.
Warehouse Wines/Spirits on Broadway south of 8th St.
These last 2 are within a few blocks of each other

Thanks for the replies!

Schedule wise, it turned out that Park Ave Liquor was by far the best store to go to as we were meeting friends for dinner only a couple of blocks away.

The staff was super friendly, very helpful and they put up with my rambling whisky nerd talking! A great store with many cool bottles available.

I picked up a couple of bottles (one whisky and one mezcal):
