Best Liquor Store: Total Wine and More

The people have spoken.

If Dionysus, the Greek god of wine and ritual madness, were to materialize out of thin air and gaze upon Total Wine, he would probably drop to his knees, shed a single tear, and claim it as his new temple. It features a selection of more than 8,000 wines (2,000 of them not available elsewhere), 2,500 beers, 3,000 spirits, and a cigar humidor. In summation, Total Wine and More has more booze in it than your dad’s college buddy at a family barbecue, making it the best liquor store in Seattle. 525 N.E. Northgate Way Suite 5, 365-0572

First runner-up: Trader Joe’s

Second runner-up: Pete’s in Eastlake

Honorable mention: Esquin, Downtown Spirits
