1. Tower
The AJC dining team’s Popular Eats specialist Jon Watson says, “For the best overall selection of beer, wine, and liquor, it is tough to beat Tower’s sprawling inventory. For a store their size, I’m always impressed by the depth of their stock, including hard-to-find liquors and craft beers.”

Holiday Package Store off Buford Highway! The selection is amazing- each bottle of wine also usually has a good write-up so you know what your getting. It’s a great store and worth a drive from Buckhead!

Tower on Piedmont used to be my place for wine but I no longer shop there. My last visit, I checked out the lady was downright rude, almost hostile. I spoke to the manager and his attitude was complete indifference. After years of being a faithful customer, I now shop at Total Wine.

For people who love Belgian beer then the places to go are any of the Green’s Liquors and just and incredible neighborhood convience store across from the original Flying Biscuit on McClendon Ave. called Candler Park Market. They have just an incredible selection of the really good Belgian beers. For those who don’t know about that type of beer need to look into it. You will never go back to drinking Budweiser

1. Either Greens…Buford highway is closer
2. Either Tower….
3. I don’t work for Holiday Package like the people on the first page but they’re not bad. Dekalb Bottle House on Braircliff is the definition of a good local place.

I’m voting all of this on what places get the newest/hard to find beers that get gobbled up in a day. Things like Bells “Hop Slam” were gobbled up by the big stores in 10 minutes and they either sold the bottles individually at a horrible price jack or placed no restrictions on what someone could purchase and sold their stock to one or two people (Tower/Greens). Small guys were at least democratic with their supply.

Regardless….START SELLING ON SUNDAY DEKALB!!!!!

Anyone who would say Little 5 Points Package is one of the best liquor stores in the city is an idiot. That place is the most cookie cutter stereotypical ghetto store I have ever seen. Their selection is a joke and they price-gouge like no place around. Six-pack prices average $2 more than Green’s on Ponce. If you think this place is good for booze – just buy your stuff at Kroger or any ghetto store on Moreland you mook.

re: Total Wine – the state of GA liquor laws only allow two liquor stores per owner; Total with 3 stores, had to make one a wine only store (Green’s and Towers got around this for years by placing licenses in family members names until the state busted them for it in the early 90’s)

For that special bottle of wine, definitely Atlantic Wine on Roswell Road. They regularly travel to France, Italy, and Spain to determine which vintages to offer. They have great value wines in addition to their high-end selections. Extremely knowledgeable customer service. One of the staff members, Labe Mell, teaches various courses on wine at the Alliance Française d’Atlanta. Highly Recommended.

I have never been to Holiday, but I will. I have crossed checked prices and availability of a few items at Toco Hills Liquor Store and Towers in Doraville, and Towers beats their prices easily.

Are the posters here saying that Holiday is the best, do you mean in availability and price or something else? I think before I say anyone is “best” it will be based on at least these two criteria, then distance to get to them.

Will the best buys be in Gwinnett, Dekalb or Fulton County?

I totally understand that your folks at Holiday Wine Spirits see this question as a way to promote your store, but all these responses are outrageous overkill.

Let me let you guys in on a little secret. Tower East Wine & Spirits at 223 Moreland Ave. is the best. See Alan Smirin for the best prices in town. It’s not that far and well worth the drive. Enjoy. If you don’t see what you want, he will find it for you. very helpful, great prices.

If you are in Gwinnett….the best place by far is BEVERAGE SUPERSTORE! They also have weekly Beer and Wine tastings!

If we are talking liquor and considering price – then tell me a place better than Kilroy’s got it on the southside. They objectively have WAY better prices than Towers East (you can get a 750ML bottle of Patron Silver for about $10 less at Kilroys than Towers East). They have a great selection of well known top shelf brands. I don’t think they have Ambhar Tequila Anejo, nor Azunia Platinum Blanco, nor Corrido. But if you want a well reconized brand name – Patron, Herradura, Tres Anos – they have them at prices below most other places. Their wine selection is lacking – so if this is “who’s got the best wine selection” then someplace like H&F Bottle Shop will win. But on the objective store price level I have to laugh out loud that people think Tower East is better. And when it comes to a beer place some place like ALE YEAH will probably win.

Love Sherlock’s on Barrett Parkway, great, friendly, knowledgeable staff. Huge selection of vodkas and other liquor. I prefer Whitlock Liquor in Marietta for beer, they have about the best selection I’ve ever seen!

Do you really think that we are to believe that every holiday package reference with link to website is not the owner or employees. Cmon dude. Greens on Ponce best beer selection. Should I add a link a fake name and talk about a tequila selection as well.

It all depends on where you live, but I live in Woodstock and the best place for price, service and esp. the look and feel of a store, you can’t beat Lucky’s Beverage World on hwy 92. Best craft beer selection I have seen – Check out their website http://www.luckysbw.com

Slick – you are correct. I live in the Woodlands in Woodstock and that is our (entire subdivion) store of choice. I am also an architect and I can tell you that is by far the best looking liquor store building I have seen. Huge wine selection and awesome prices.

For us wayyyyy OTP, Turtle Creek in Winder is an oasis in the desert…..great tequila selection and very friendly staff. Also, OTP…but just barely…Bev World on PIB. Towers and Greens locations…and Suwanee package….once the last place to go before the lake and the vast wasteland up I-85….it has grown and has great selections….

Depends on what I am looking for.

If I want personal service and wine:
- H&F (who should be able to see liquor soon, or may be by now)
- Perrines

If I want personal service and wine or liquor at lower prices
- Tower (Buford Highway location; NOT Piedmont!!)

Runners up:
- Total Wine (any location but Perimeter and NorthPoint were ones I frequented)
- Hintons Wine Store – service is either amazing or your are ignored and sneered at, nothing in between. Wine and Liquor here.
- Decatur Package – only been in twice but Herb seems like a good guy
- Greene’s

Great store, vast selections & knowledgeable, friendly staff…whether it’s liquor, beer or wine. I wouldn’t shop anywhere else in Atlanta/Decatur area. Do you know anyone else in Atlanta/Decatur that knows more about wine than HERB?

Liquor Store on Peachtree at Collier Rd gets my vote just because I can walk there. Does anyone know why they can’t sell liquor at the same cash register as beer/wine? Also gets my vote for the oldest employees wearing the loudest mis-matched ties!What a throw-back….Hello 1972!

Best liquor store is Beverage World. Its the big red store off peachtree industrial. You can see it from the road. Best prices (beer super cheap) and they have a huge wine selection. Worth a trip.

Highwayman, The best liquor store was in Macon behind the Dempst Hotel.
CUZ Liquor Store -no 21 was required in the 50’s you only had to be able to reach
the counter and put the money on it. That the why we called him “CUZ THE FRIEND OF
YOUTH”

Tower’s on Piedmont and there is also another one I have visited in Gwinnet County. The people there a super nice and ver accommodating. Since expanding, they really do a booming business because of their pricing and the selection. GO TOWER’S this girl loves you. Very convenient, clean and very well stocked.

I am sad that Heppy Herman’s on Cheshire Bridge closed. The personnel there, the speciality products they offered and the review and assistance in the wine department were unbelievable. If you wanted something wonderful and unique…you went to Happy Herman’s. I REALLY miss it.
