Best Wine/Liquor Store

Plaza Liquors and Fine Wines

This place is known far and wide—like, across the country—even though it's an unassuming, regular-looking liquor store. But there's nothing ordinary about the treasures housed here: hundreds of hard-to-find beers—chilled, no less, and you can create your own six-pack; unusual spirits; and an admirable collection of wine. But perhaps Plaza's real treasures are the knowledgeable and personable employees, who can point you in the right direction if you know what you want, and can open up new worlds if you don't. This is a local business which cares about its customers and will do whatever is needed to enable you to raise your glass with a resounding, "Cheers!"
