Best Liquor Store

Big Top Liquors

Oenophiles looking for a $50 bottle of Bordeaux and homeless people scraping change together for an ice-cold 40 of Colt 45 are served as equals by the three rings of goods available at Big Top Liquors in the Midway neighborhood of St. Paul. With an impressive selection of top-shelf liquor, a smorgasbord of mid-range hard stuff, and a wide selection of refrigerated beer, including cases, customers' options are almost limitless. Add in plenty of wallet-friendly beverages (Wild Irish Rose, anyone?) and a staff that is not only efficient at the checkout but eager to help you find just the right bottle even if you don't know exactly what you're looking for, and Big Top comes out on top every time.
