Where to Get Takeout or Delivery Alcohol in NYC Right Now
If your bar cart is fully stocked and looking dusty, you’re in luck because the only place you can drink right now is home. But if you're like the rest of us and don’t have a bar-worthy booze setup inside your tiny apartment, it’s time to pick up the phone and order delivery. You’re a New Yorker, you should be good at that.
NYC bars and restaurants are now serving cocktails with takeout and delivery food orders, so cocktail bar-quality concoctions are never too far away. Here’s a list of the best NYC spots bringing booze to your front door or serving cocktails for the road:
Dante’s signature Even-Split cocktail is easy enough to make at home, but you’re better off carrying out its signature negroni on tap for $12. Or better yet, get it delivered. You can stock up on individual servings, or upgrade to bottles that serve three for $28, five for $45, or 10 for $93.

You may miss your seat at the bar where it’s summer all the time, but you can bring some sunshine home from King Tai.

How to order: Order takeout/delivery on Caviar
Most of Hunky Dory’s cocktails could be defined as classics turned a little weird, making them perfect for this absolutely batshit time. The cocktails come in varying sizes from single servings up to five servings, and I’d venture to guess you’ll want to supersize your order of the bar’s Mojitos Mo’ Problems or Banana-Nog, which pairs banana rum with pineau de charentes, oat milk, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
How to order: Order takeout/delivery (to Crown Heights and Prospect Heights only) online with payment via Venmo.
This tiny, tucked-away cocktail bar in the heart of Harlem is now bottling up its cocktails to go. And don’t worry, Sugar Monk knows you need to stock up, so they nixed the single servings and are offering signature drinks bottled up with enough for three for $40 or six for $75.
