There is nothing like a fine hand crafted cocktail or a fresh beer from one of Little Rock’s newest brew pubs. But going out for drinks all the time can get expensive, and sometimes (like the past few days) you get stuck inside. We all have our favorite liquor stores around town to fill those needs when drinking out is not an option.
We asked the team at Rock City Eats to come up with our favorite liquor stores around town. Want to add your favorites to the list? Tell us what it is in the comments or on social media and we will add to our list.
Colonial Wine and Spirits – There is little question that Colonial is the king of liquor stores in Little Rock. Colonial covered almost every obscure liquor, wine, or craft beer several years ago when moving into their large, former car dealership, location on Markham. Now they are focused on providing additional experiences such as a growler filling station and ongoing events such as wine tastings.
O’Looney’s – O’Looney’s might not be known to many east of I-430, but this far west LR liquor store on Rahling Rd has a great selection. Wine lovers will find one of the best curated selections of wine in the city. A must stop if you find yourself out near Shinall mountain or after watching a marathon of children’s movies at the M in the Promenade
Pop a Top – Look, it is not the most fancy liquor store and not in the most traveled part of town. But what Pop-A-Top has to offer is a great selection of products. Great stop for mid-towners and those in South Little Rock.
Pleasant Valley Liquor – Pleasant Valley on Rodney Parham offers a good selection of wine and a growing inventory of craft beers. Owners are also fantastic at giving cocktail recommendations and pointing you in the right direction for needed supplies.
Grapevine – Just a block down on Rodney Parham as well is Grapevine Wine and Spirits. Grapevine does a great job with craft beer as well, featuring a number of local beers and occasional beer tasting events.
