Hosting A House Party? These Thekas In Delhi Have The Best Liquor Selection


    We’ve rounded up a list of some thekas with the most variety you can check out from whether you’re in South Delhi or Central Delhi (and East and West for good measure). 

    Disclaimer: Please make sure you take all safety precautions by practising social distancing and wearing masks at all times before heading out for your booze run. 

    La Cave, Saket

    This spacious liquor shop bang in the middle of Select Citywalk mall is a paradise for the wine connoisseur. Taken over by Brindco not too long ago, the focus here is entirely on the vino, so you might want to pay it a visit before a big date. They’re also the only peeps in town who stock Diddy’s vodka.

    Ashok Gulrajani Wine & Beer Shop, Jangpura

    This mid-sized shop in Jangpura boasts of a rich range of imported liquor. Their wine cellar is full of wines from all over the globe, and is safely kept at a regulated temperature. If there’s a particular bottle you’re searching for, they’ll be happy to arrange it for you (provided it’s registered in Delhi) in just 48 hours!

    Chitranjan Suri Wine & Beer Shop, GK II

    Chitranjan Suri in the Savitri Cinema (now DT) complex in GK II is always crowded, and for a good reason. Apart from the usual, they keep classics like Glenfiddich, Glenlivet and Chivas, aged between 12 to 18 years. This is also one of the few places you can get a small bottle of wine if you’re planning to go solo.

    Wine & Beer Shop, Moments Mall

    Since it's inside a mall, this store is a bit fancy. They stock a bunch of luxury, liquor options but we usually head here for Desperados beer. This shop is also a great place if you're looking for liquor gifts.

    Wine & Beer Shop, Dwarka Sector 13

    Located right beside Radisson Blu, this is one liquor store in Dwarka we don’t mind visiting solo, whenever the mood strikes us to chill at home with a glass of good wine. The store is of a decent size, which makes it convenient to move around and browse. If you’re looking for something other than Sula and Fratelli, you won’t be disappointed.

    Grand Bazaar, Kailash Colony

    Grand Bazaar

    Kailash Colony, Delhi

    This is a department store with a first floor dedicated to liquor and other party items. Their forte, undoubtedly, is wine. They have shelves upon shelves of reds and whites from different countries (Spain, France, Chile), as well as domestic ones such as Sula and Jacob’s Creek. The fridge is full of beer. There isn’t a great variety of these, but you’ll get brands like Kingfisher, Mahou and sometimes even Stella Artois.

    We love their accessories, by the way (alligator-shaped bottle openers, fox-shaped flasks etc).

    Madira, Vasant Kunj

    This is probably the favourite liquor store for Vasant Kunj and Vasant Vihar dwellers. You’ll find pretty much everything here; from Indian brands to international, beer to whiskey, and at many price points. You’ll also find tons of flavoured vodkas and Japanese gin here if that’s your thing (it sure is ours).

    Shop For Alcohol Mixers On Shop On LBB


    Available Online

    It's time we take it up a notch and move above those regular chasers (Coke, sprite, et al) to some brilliant homegrown ones like flavoured tonic waters, kombucha, ginger ale and other cocktail mixers online. Shop for amazing brands like Sepoy & Co., Jimmy's Cocktails and lots more. And while you're at it, how about getting some snacks too?
