Need something to bring with you for that last-minute holiday party? Need a break from all your holiday shopping? Or maybe, you’re just looking for a fun place to wind down during the evenings. I have the answer for you.
If you’re looking for a place for any of the above reasons, or even a reason not mentioned, you need to visit the gourmet package store, Grape & Grain Exchange. Located in San Marco, it’s a locally owned store that sells local and other family-owned alcohol, cheeses and beers.
There’s a wide selection of liquor, wine and beer with a variety of pricing to fit any budget. Not sure what you are in the mood to purchase? No problem. Sit down and have a drink! You can go for just drinks, you can go just to buy a bottle, or you can do both – buy a bottle of something and they will let you open it for your enjoyment in the store for a $1 corking fee.
Should you decide to stay a while, don’t miss the true prohibition-inspired speakeasy behind their back bookcase. The Parlour features a variety of live performers, typically in the jazz or blues genre. You can plan ahead of time by viewing their calendar here.
