1. Minibar

With its robust selection of fine wines and spirits, it's not hard to hit Minibar's $25 minimum. Fill your cart with bottles of rosé and bubbly, six-packs of beer and handles of booze. As a fun bonus, Minibar has a great selection of CBD-infused products, including sodas, drops, powders and candies.

2. Saucey

If you're looking for a very particular bottle of booze—like a Japanese whiskey or a vintage champagne—Saucy has you covered with a craft-heavy selection that feels a bit more upscale. In the "extras" section, guests can toss in fresh citrus, mixers, chocolate bars, frozen pizzas and cigars. You never know what you'll be craving after two Old Fashioneds.


For drinkers with a discerning palate, this craft-booze hub is like Disneyland—without the lines or the screaming kids. With the click of a button, you can shop spirits from independent craft distilleries throughout the country. The coolest thing about Spirit Hub is that you're likely to stumble across products you've never heard of (like bourbon whiskey finished in maple syrup barrels), making it an ideal place to discover a new favorite.

There's never been a better time to shop local, and the folks at Chicago-born Foxtrot make it easy with locations in West Loop, Lincoln Park, River North, Wicker Park, Old Town and beyond. Browse bespoke snacks, locally crafted treats (like popsicles from Pretty Cool Ice Cream!), and a killer selection of beer, wine and hard seltzer. Keep an eye out for fan-favorite local brands like Marz Community Brewing, Middle Brow and Maplewood.

The seemingly endless inventory of Binny's Beverage Depot is available at your fingertips through Instacart, so you don't have to haul that box of wine to your apartment on foot. Shop beer, wine, spirits, mixology accessories and glassware. Instacart will show you what's on sale, too, so that you can always fill your fridge on a budget.

6. Postmates

Sure, you've used Postmates to have Taco Bell ferried straight to your door at 2am, but did you know your trusty driver will pick up your alcohol order, too? Sit back, relax and peruse a tightly curated selection of beer, wine, spirits and mixers—all available on the app or online.

Drizly guarantees delivery in under an hour, so it very well may take you longer to decide what you want to order than it will to arrive at your doorstep. With a huge variety and the ability to compare prices, this national service offers a top-notch virtual shopping experience. Plus, it doesn't hurt that you can stock up on Chicago brands like Koval, Moody Tongue and Letherbee.

Just like its peers, Uber Eats allows you to shop your favorite restaurant's wine cellar or beer stash while you get your grub on. When you're ordering from Furious Spoon, for instance, you can toss in a sake bomb kit or a DIY margarita kit. If you'd rather skip the food altogether, you can browse select liquor stores and 7-Eleven locations instead. Just be prepared to show ID as soon as your driver arrives.
