Cocktails for Delivery Are Here: 10 Bars Where You Can Order ‘Em in NYC
Bars may have put up their bar stools and paused their happy hours, but New Yorkers can still get their cocktail fix from some of the city’s best watering holes. (And honestly, it’s everything we need right now.) Here’s who’s still whipping up dranks—now for delivery!

The Highwater, Astoria
Can’t imagine city life without boozy brunch? We got you: After setting up a Google Hangout your besties, order up from The Highwater, which is delivering bottled cocktails—Mezcal margs! Bloody Marys! DIY mimosa kits!—to pair with sweet and savory brunch staples like chicken and biscuits, Nutella and banana crepes, and impossible burgers. Bottoms up!
Heavy Woods, Bushwick
A coffee shop by day and dive bar by night, Heavy Woods is where we used to head pre-covid for our deepest ‘Nawlins cravings. They’ve still got our backs with delivery service that brings the party home—we’re talking Bloody Mary kits, liter-size hurricanes, and Cajun bites courtesy of their Tchoup Shop.
Patent Pending, Midtown
Calling all Midtowners: the cocktail hotline is open at Nomad-based Patent Pending, which is mixing up four of its bestsellers (Radio Waves, Strange Magic, Odd Love, and Made From Memory) for anyone inside their delivery zone—and adding a bag of chips on the house. Also on the delivery menu: $20 bags of bone broth, fresh-baked cookies, and a selection of delicious munchies. Order $50 worth of stuff and they’ll even throw in a roll of toilet paper, which, in the times we’re living in, pretty much pays for itself.
Dudley’s, Lower East Side
This LES deli jumped on the cocktails-on-demand game early. Right now, they’re delivering everything from easy pours (pilsners, IPAs, house wines) to classic cocktails (daiquiris, belinis) to more ingredient-packed options like the Orchard + Broome (tequila reposado, blood orange, cayenne, agave, and lime) and espresso martinis. They even sell mixers including juices (grapefruit, orange, pineapple, cucumber), bitters, and ginger beer for all your Mule needs.
Jacob’s Pickles, Upper West Side
Every Upper West Sider knows and loves Jacob’s Pickles, whose extensive southern comfort food menu hits the spot. Take your pick from their “healthy” delivery list of biscuit sandwiches, mac and cheese, home cooking options like chicken and pancakes, and drinks to wash it all down with. Along with beers and ciders, there are a few choice cocktails—might we suggest the Jam Jar (strawberry-infused gin with house-made lemonade) or the Porch Sipper (Wild Turkey bourbon, muddled lemon, lime and orange, and angostura bitters)?
Interested in simulating a quarantine-style “trip” to Mexico at home? Williamsburg taqueria Donna has got you covered with palomas, cans of Tecate, and lots of taco varieties—chicken pibil, al pastor, chorizo cauliflower—along with chips and guac, nachos, quesadillas, and the option to turn your taco into a burrito if you’re getting delivery.
Dante, West Village
Despite being closed to the public, West Village mainstay Dante is making sure patrons don’t go a day without access to their signature martinis and on-tap Negronis. Had a week? Treat yourself to their “martini service,” which includes enough liquor and fixings for 10 cocktails. At $85, they’ll put you well over that pesky $75 delivery minimum.
Evelina, Fort Greene
This charming Mediterranean spot in Fort Greene has slashed 50% off wine, beer, and cocktails during their takeout and delivery hours of 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. Highlights include the Juliet (Suntory Toki Japanese Whisky, organic beetroot, ginger syrup, pressed lemon) and their signature Evelina, which is made with rosemary-infused Capelletti (a wine-based aperitif) and house Prosecco.
Añejo, Hell’s Kitchen + Tribeca
It’s all about choices at Añejo. Even on their delivery menu, they’re offering three types of guacamole and endless combinations of tacos and tortas. The real draw, though, is their margaritas, which are made with Añejo (aged), Blanco, or Jalapeño tequila (and Mezcal, if you’re ordering from their Hell’s Kitchen location) and come in two sizes, 16 oz. and 32 oz. We know which one we’re going for 😉
Phil’s Brooklyn, Bushwick
No sweeter words were ever uttered on Instagram than “We will bring the booze and Mac to you” courtesy of friendly neighborhood wine dive Phils’ “Amboozelance.” Jello shots, wine and cocktails, beer party packs, and five different types of mac ‘n cheese (including truffled porcini and buffalo chicken) are all just a click away. Just slide into their DMs to order for curbside delivery.
