Manhattan – Harlem
2235 Frederick Douglass Blvd (bet. 120th and 121st Sts.)
Manhattan, NY 10027
The area’s first boutique wine and spirits shop, which opened in 2004, is so good it may as well be the wine shop in a world-class hotel. Owners and wine aficionados Jai Jai Greenfield and Eric Woods opened the store because, as Woods says, “As a consumer, it was a challenge to find and purchase wine in Harlem that I wanted to drink.” Prices average around $15, and labels come from around the globe, including Chile, New Zealand and Long Island.
