Shopping for booze can be intimidating, especially if you’re not a drinker. But this user-friendly shop is perfect for both wannabe and professional winos alike. Each display is impeccably organized by themes and categories, so you can meander through the shop with confidence. Ordering in tonight? Make a beeline for the Chinese food container, where each bottle is specifically paired with local take-out menus. And if you’re shopping in search of a standout gift, the inventory ranges from “Someone you barely know” to “The Boss.” The shop encourages lingering (there’s a children’s nook filled with books and toys as well as a water bowl and biscuit station for your pooch), so spend some time relaxing in the seating area, where you can page-through wine magazines and cookbooks.
