Amazing Selection
May 2021
The best place in Manhattan for buying wine and spirits. The selection and range is incredible. They have everything you could possibly want with the exception of certain types of bitters, which, due to the bizarre laws governing the state of New York, cannot not be sold in a liquor store.

A Manhattan Must!
Oct 2020
After living in Manhattan for two decades, Astor Wines & Spirits ranks as one of my top ten places that make the City special.

It's not too much to say that their stock is out-and-out curated, and the depth of knowledge of their staff is stellar. Furthermore in-city deliveries are fast and their website is a pleasure to navigate, with staff selections, notes on the alcohol and a dizzying selection.

While I haven't tried their tastings or classes (on virtually any drink subject, it seems!) I look forward to, and I have a lot of friends who love them and attend as couples, not unlike cooking classes elsewhere.

I absolutely recommend visiting rather than online ordering since it's a pleasure to simply get lost in the store. If you're anything like me, you'll end up leaving with exactly what you wanted -- as well as with one or two new things to try; it's hard not to go down unexplored rabbit holes when they make it as easy and wonderful as this!

Ron to the Rescue!
Sep 2020
I was traipsing all over creation in NYC looking for Casamigos Anejo when I remembered that Astor Wines and Spirits carried it. I called, spoke to Ron who basically saved the day! He said they literally had 4 bottles of the tequila in stock and he would hold a bottle for me at Will Call!

The entire transaction, which we did by phone till I could get to the store, was seamless! Ron was efficient and professional. He's my hero! My bottle of Casamigos Anejo was waiting for me in a bag when I arrived at the store a few minutes later.

Astor Wines and Spirits is a fabulous store. The selection is second to none and the employees always go above and beyond the call of duty.

Thank you! Can't wait to return!

Take a wine tasting workshop ~ outstanding!!
Mar 2020
Took a wine tasting workshop with Zaan Eksteen on South American wines. Such a knowledgable instructor, and very interesting to learn about a simply priced and delicious wine region! The wine shop attached is beautifully appointed with a helpful and professional staff. Probably the best place in the city to buy wine and spirits!

The tastiest wine store in town
May 2019
During our week long stay in NYC, we often popped into Astor's to look around and especially to sample/taste the wine and spirits on offer.

To our surprise the first gin offered for tasting was Cotswold, originating not 20 miles from where we lived in the UK.

Each time we visited there were different wines to sample, all at reasonable prices.

They have a huge range of beers, wines and spirits in stock, a veritable drink emporium.

We shall certainly revisit at each opportunity, thanks for sharing with us.

Excellent Store
Jan 2019 • Solo
The best alcohol store I encountered. The selection is wide and extensive and the staff is helpful and knowledgeable about the many different options. It is fun to be in the store - it is very well organized making it easy to shop. You can order online, use their delivery service or shop in person. I am always happy with their service.

A First Rate Emporium
Jan 2019 • Solo
For someone who has had to deal with the nightmare of state run liquor stores her whole life, walking into Astor Wines & Spirits was like a dream. Clean, well organized shelves, polite and helpful staff
(special nod to Steven Bowles for his warm affability & competence), plus a simply extraordinary array of quality choices. So nice to be able to choose from more than one offering of Lowland Scotch whiskies and their Vermouth selection is really good. Prices were fair and right in line with other retailers and in some instances I found bottles at a lower cost.

They have a tasting area, an information desk, multiple check out lines and (YEAH!) shipping available for those of us who can only carry so many bottles to go. My order was shipped on the first business day after the order was placed and was packed extremely well.

Last but not least they have a really good website which is easy to navigate and very informative. Highly recommend.

Established in 1946. Astor Wines & Spirits. Nice structure, it has stood on the corner of Fourth and Lafayette Streets in Manhattan since 1885. Its façade has been carefully maintained, leaving its charming period-specific features intact.
