Best Liquor Store: B-21 Fine Wines & Spirits

Pulling into the parking lot, it’s hard to believe that this big-ass warehouse just north of Tarpon Springs can actually be entirely dedicated to booze — particularly when you see that they’ve got grocery carts and that lots of people are using them. But it is, and B-21’s massive inventory allows it to offer a lot of premium brands for a couple of bucks below the going rate. There’s an impressive wine selection as well, not to mention plenty of accessories, from pro bar equipment to glass sets and other thirsty-lifestyle accoutrements. There’s no better place for folks who not only like to drink, but like to find new things to drink and drink out of.
