Heights Chateau


123 Atlantic Ave.,
United States,

This wine and spirits shop in the Cobble Hill neighborhood of Brooklyn is beloved for many reasons — the great lengths its staff goes to please its customers, (first-timers get a tour of the store), an eclectic inventory that includes Middle Eastern and African products, seasonal seminars on bourbon and scotch, and free tastings throughout the week. Organization is by region and country with additional color-coding to denote local, organic, and biodynamic vintages. The interior is surprisingly spacious and sports old-school wooden shelves and floors under a Victorian-style, tin ceiling.
