Wondering what to bring as the perfect host/hostess gift? Don’t know anything about wine, beer or spirits? Know everything there is about cocktail culture and looking for that one special ingredient to wow your friends? Bottles has it all! Opening two years ago with much anticipation by Wayland Square residents, Bottles is a sophisticated space, brightly lit with graphics and store signage that brings the largess of the space down to an intimate level, making it a pleasure to shop. While the space entices the eye, the friendly and knowledgeable staff offer approachable and enthusiastic advice.
Specialties at Bottles include offering food paring suggestions with every wine in the store so that entertaining ideas abound and there is always a reason to celebrate with a recommended selection and wine varieties that you may not have thought of. Bottles offers Providence residents great values too, including over 500 great wines priced under $15 dollars and a selection of over 1,000 beers, most of which are craft brews! Offering beer tastings every Friday from 3-7pm and wine tastings every Saturday from 3-7pm, there is something for everyone. The tastings often include unusual and delicious food parings. One recent tasting included the appearance of renowned brewmaster, Garrett Oliver of Brooklyn Brewery serving up some tantalizing and tasty samples which were pared with freshly shucked oysters from new local grower, Walrus and Carpenter from Charlestown, RI. It really doesn’t get much better than that!
No matter what you are looking for, Bottles will have something to please or inspire. In addition to their extensive wine and craft beer selection, they also offer an impressive array of whiskeys, scotch and bourbons from tried and true brands to very fine, small-batch distillers. A wall of exceptional aperitif and cordial selections offers spicy, fruity and sweet liquors to tantalize any palette. Kosher wine and spirits are also available, as are plenty of unusual and interesting mixers and syrups to experiment with in your own cocktail creations.
The staff selects their favorite wines on a monthly basis, so if you’re in a pinch and running late for a party, head right for the Staff Picks section, you won’t go wrong. Also, don’t forget to take advantage of the Customer Rewards program, which with 500 points, earns you a $25 store credit and regular members-only pricing. You’re sure to be back once you’ve had the Bottles experience, so it’s definitely worth it, because it’s free!
