Alcohol delivery apps has begun to pop up in cities across the country in recent years, much to the delight of imbibers who sometimes just can’t be bothered to make the trek to the local liquor store. Whether you’re running low in the middle of a party, have surprise guests, or maybe have (the ill-advised) inclination to order some more hooch after you’ve long passed the ability to operate a motor vehicle, a booze delivery app can seem like an alcohol-bringing angel.
So let’s look at some of the best apps out there for securing your hooch.
1. Drizly: Operating in 22 states, Drizzly is one of the big players in this sector. Like many of these ‘service’ apps, the cost of convenience can be pretty steep, with a $10 fee that can increase with the size of your order. Combine that with relatively high pricing for individual items, and the average user is definitely going to be someone willing to pay a premium.
2. Saucey: Though Saucey only operates in limited markets (as of now: LA, SF, San Diego, Chicago, and Sacramento), it’s become very popular with its users. Speedy delivery times and the fact that they often issue $10 discount codes means that the astute user can actually get a pretty good deal now and then. One of our favorite aspects of the app? No minimum order amounts.
3. DoorDash: DoorDash is known for its food delivery, but the service recently added the ability to deliver booze as well. DoorDash operates in California, Washington, Minnesota, New York, Chicago, and Texas, among others. One unique feature of DoorDash: You can buy a six-pack and a meal at the same time. Delivery fees are per establishment, and typically run $5 a pop.
4. Minibar: MiniBar currently operates in cities around the United States including San Francisco, New York, Chicago, Houston, Nashville, Aspen, Miami, and Phoenix. More than just a place to buy wine, beer, liquor, and mixers, Minibar also offers the ability to book a bartender for your party directly on its site.
5. Klink: Much like Saucey, Klink offers the ability to get booze delivered to you quickly. Unlike all the other players on this list, they have the unique aspect of letting you order your tipple based on mood. Though it’s kind of a silly gimmick, it is interesting to see the suggestions for things like guys/girls night in, etc.
