Liquor store downtown Miami?

Liquor store downtown Miami?

To the locals,

Since we don't want to schlep wine on the plane from home, is there a liquor store within walking distance from the Holiday Inn downtown? We can take two bottles of wine on our cruise ship, and would like to take advantage of that.

If so, which direction and how many blocks?

Thanks for any info,

Beergirl (and wine girl too!)

Hi Beer and Wine Girl,

According to local yellow pages, there are two liquor stores near your hotel.

House Of Wine & Liquor

330 Se 1st St

Miami, FL 33131

(305) 533-9898

Liquor Downtown

207 E Flagler St

Miami, FL 33131 Map

(786) 425-2669

Be aware that downtown Miami is pretty dead on weekends, with the exception of Bayside Marketplace, opposite your hotel. Regrettably there are no liquor stores there


If you get your wine, make sure you hide it well. Cruise lines don't like you bringing booze aboard. They want to sell it to you at inflated prices on board.

Enjoy your cruise. Don't fall overboard.

When you come out of the HI turn right go 2 blocks turn right go1 block turn left it is in the middle of the block. There also is a Walgreens at the end of the block . I believe this the on on Flagler. I would advise you to get this stuff durnjing the day. I don't think this a vary safe area at night.

There are a number of places to check out right near your hotel. Walk south on Biscayne to E. Flagler Street and take a right. There is a Downtown Liquor store on that street just past the Marshall's on the north side of the street. There is also a Walgreens there if you need to buy any liquids like shampoo or whatever they take away at the airport this week.

A block further south is SE 1st Street. If you turn down this street, there is a ROSS dress for less shop and a few cafes to try plus a brand new wine and liquor shop right next door to the HERTZ Car rental. I think a number of new wine and liqour shops have opened in the last 6 months for smart cruisers like you who decide to BYOB...

I have made a map for you to print out that will guide you all around your hotel to great restaurants, bars, shopping and sightseeing.

Have a great trip!

Thanks, all of you, for your informative replies.

Our ship allows us to bring two bottles of wine aboard with no problems.

A G - I'll check out that site. I'm sure I'll pick up some pointers.

Thanks again,
