You know all those times when you're hosting a party and everything is going great and then you run out of booze? You're a few drinks in so you can't run to the store to restock, and as a result, you have to shut things down just when everyone's starting to settle in.
Well, as of today, Phoenicians, that never has to happen again.
That's because today, Monday, January 11, Minibar Delivery launches on-demand alcohol delivery in metro Phoenix. The company allows customers to order wine, spirits, or beer online or through the Minibar app. For a $5 delivery fee, you'll get your order delivered to your location in an hour or less and, best of all, Minibar sells its products at the same prices you'd find in stores so you don't have to worry about jacked-up prices.
For now, the delivery service will be available in downtown Phoenix, North Phoenix, Gilbert, and Chandler. The company is working with local retail partners Chandler Liquors and Liquor Wheel 2 and hopes to expand service to Tempe and Scottsdale soon.
Deliveries in Phoenix are free for the first month of service, and there's a $25 minimum for delivery orders.
