MJames was right about the area. This is not in a very nice place, but I don’t feel that I’m in danger when I drop by after work to pick up some beer. I might feel differently after dark though.
The staff have been very friendly, stopping to talk with me about beers, always in a good mood. Selection is decent. They do carry Aventinus and it is much cheaper here than it is at Joes in Norman. I’m just glad I work somewhat close to this place.
Beer selection is just better than average in this otherwise excellent liquor store. Huge wine selection. Staff is friendly, but beer is obviously not their thing. Decent for an oklahoma store. I saw a handful of Belgian and German brews. Quite a few southern and midwest micros, and an entire shelf was seemingly dedicated to mexican beer. I did see most of the Rogue lineup there however. Definitely one of the better stops in OKC.

Not much for ambiance, but to me that’s not why I’d go there. They are pretty much the cheapest place, with a great selection. The only drawback is, as has already been mentioned, they don’t really have much in the way of singles. Other than that, you really can’t beat them.
Not in the greatest neighborhood, and the ailes are narrow and crowded. But they have a decent selection and the staff is surprisingly knowledgeable. Doesn’t have quite the beer selection as Grand Cru, but prices are reasonable for what they have.
They definitely specialize in wine and liquor, and if was reviewing for that the rating woud be significantly higher.
A large warehouse type store. Service was fine, though don’t think they would be particularly knowledgeable. Selection is good, they do have a number of malt liquors that seem to be more plentiful than in other stores in the area. No singles. Prices are competitive.

Located near the freeway in central OKC, it’s within walking distance from the Government buildings. Don’t walk around there, however, as the area is not exactly the nicest or safest in town. The beer selection is good for the area, but focuses more on six-packs than they do on singles or 22oz/750mL bottles. I believe the turnover is high, so it should be rare to get old or stale beer from these guys. Their focus is wine, but they keep up with releases fairly well, and their prices are cheaper than most in the area.
The Pros- Good selection (not great though) and beer prices that are about 10% cheaper than anywhere else in town. Most convienent liquor store to downtown with a decent beer selection.
The Cons- Shady area with staff that know nothing about the beer they stock. No single bottles. I got carded three times while in the store, so keep your ID handy.
Ghetto liquor store. Very good if you want to buy common brands in bulk. Selection is OK but often no more than a 6 pack or two on the shelf at times. Overrated a bit on price but still less expensive than most other stores due to volume.
A pretty good selection of beers for OKC, not as much selection as The Cellar, but still pretty good. I wish they sold single bottles so that you can try new styles.
Bad part of town, but it is one of the cheapest places in town.
