Austin Gets a Minibar
On-demand alcohol delivery makes it easy for Austinites to stock the bar
The birds are singing, and spring is in the air. It’s the perfect time to start scheduling backyard barbecues and get-togethers by the pool. It’s also about time to restock the liquor cabinet with lighter spirits.
Austinites have an awesome new way to shop for booze from the comfort of their lounge chairs with Minibar, an on-demand alcohol delivery service that’s literally at their fingertips.
To celebrate the company’s Austin launch, Minibar is offering free delivery for the first month of service through the end of March. After month’s end, delivery is only $5 — a real steal considering that Minibar’s partners deliver as little or as much wine, beer, and liquor to your door as your budget allows.
CultureMap readers get $10 off their first order.* Simply enter the code MINIATX at checkout.
Place an order online or via the iPhone or Android app, pay through Minibar’s secure system, and, depending on your location, one of three local retailers fills the order. Far West Liquor & Fine Wines on Far West Boulevard, Wiggy’s Liquor Store on Lamar Boulevard, and the newly opened 34 Wine & Spirits on Southwest Parkway have partnered with Minibar to serve the needs of Austin residents.
The delivery shows up at your home or place of business in less than an hour. That means, even if you run out of beer at your next barbecue, Minibar can save the day.
Want to try making a Moscow Mule or some craft margaritas? Minibar has you covered, from the liquor to the mixers to the garnishes. You can even buy local favorites like Texas Squeeze juices and Topo Chico right through the site, which means that you don’t have to go to the store to set up your bar right.
Unsure about the amount of drinks you need? Use the Party Planner feature on the site to figure out how much wine, liquor, or beer you should order based on the length, time, and number of guests expected at your event. Minibar also provides Austin customers with its Book a Bartender service, so you can hire someone to pour drinks at your shindig — right from your phone.
Whether you’re gearing up for a party or stocking up on spring- and summer-friendly spirits, Minibar makes shopping about as easy as possible. Just make sure someone 21 or older is around to receive the order.
*Offer must include 1+ non-alcoholic beverage; the purchase of alcohol is not required. Must be 21 years or over. Offer expires 12/31/16.
