This Binnys is enormous. Itís probably the best Binnys in the city, yet one of the least attended. As such, it tends to get picked over a little less quickly than some of their other locations. Binnys prices pretty much set the average for the city. This particular location seems to be lacking in service. I donít believe Iíve ever had anyone here offer to help, and the cashiers seem like they might be transplants from the Target a couple doors down. The real gem here is a small bar off to the side where they have tap craft beer, well-made/designed cocktails, and small plates of the artisan meats and cheeses sold on site.

I had time on Tuesday morning so headed here to check out a different Binnyís. They have a tasting area/bar but alas it was closed when I went. The ambiance is massive liquor store though smaller/more maze like than the one across from GI Clyborne. Good service from knowledgeable staff plus 9.99 mix 6-packs and a huge selection of stuff. I got a mix-6, a Black Butte XXVI plus a 4-pack of Bellís Two Hearted for about 40$ which is pretty good. Well worth dropping by but next time I am in town I will probably head back to the Lincoln Park branch which I think it a bit better.

Ambiance is a bit scattered untill you find the aisles you are looking for. Service was good, severl people asking if needed help, but didnt feel bothered, guy at register also hooked me up. Selection is pretty dan good, both european and craft stuff. Overall I think I like the lincoln park one a bit better, but still a great bottle shop.

Large store, warehouse style. Friendly staff, great selection. I end up buying 10-12 bottles every time I come through town.

What an awesome place! I would have liked to see more singles, but what a selection! I so would have liked to check out the cheese bar available in the store. I will make it back to this location the next trip to Chicago!

This is the place to go to in the south loop. Plenty of parking, in a congested area. Their selection is huge, their beer knowledge is huger, and their prices are low. The have a small tasting bar, but thats not what its about. Its about the beer, and itís here!!!

A warehouse vibe but filled with bottles Iíd only dreamed of in AZ. Had fun picking some rarities off of the shelf. Had to be mindful of weight as I had a bit if a hike back to the hotel. Not a ton if service availability but that didnít really matter. Great beer selection of Chicago goodies!

Another great Binnyís location in Chicago. The free parking was nice and it was close off the highway. Great selection as expected and I lucked into some stuff from the cellar on my visit. They also had an escalator only for carts from the second level, so of course I had to give that a shot. My first stop will always be LP due to proximity to GI, but this store was great and I would like to come back at a time when their onsite bar is open.

A well stocked store. Decent prices and selection. Bar is nice for an occasional odd brew. I live a couple block away which is great.

One of the largest stores in the Chicagoland area and always worth a stop. Friendly staff and a huge selection of beer are what await you. Good lambic and sour selection from overseas, a great place to pick up new beer, and the free parking is an added bonus. Large cooler selection, frequent tastings on the weekend and a full service bar area with a pretty solid craft and local tap list are big pluses. Dangerous as itís so close to Mannyís and they allow you to bring food in to the bar if you want. Essentially, Binnyís flagship store and one of their best because of it. Sheer size and amount of beer make this a stop for anyone once. I always come back though due to proximity to job and ease for me. Good.
