The Chicago Alcohol Delivery & Pickup GuideAll the bars, restaurants, wine shops, and breweries that’ll help keep your bar cart full while you’re stuck at home.
There’s only one place you can drink right now: Your home. But the only alcohol currently in your possession is an ironic can of Four Loko someone left at your apartment last year, and a bottle of peach Schnapps whose origin story is unknown.
So here are bars, breweries, and restaurants where you can stock up, with curbside pick-up and delivery. Even though you can’t go drink at these places, you can still support them (and drink something great) by ordering from them. We’ll keep updating this guide with more information - so stay tuned, and stay well.
If you want to stock up on wine, but you also miss cheese, this cafe and wine shop will happily put together a cheese plate to go with the bottle (or bottles) you select. We promise that whatever All Together Now picks will go way better with your natural red than that package of Kraft singles sitting in your fridge.
This is a cocktail bar that’s doing a lot. For $50, they’re offering large-format cocktail kits of their specialty drinks (like the peanut butter and jelly vodka cocktail) for carryout. They also have food available, and have even compiled a playlist for you to listen to while you get drunk.
