This was opened in the 1800's and was one of the first liquor stores in Chicago. They imported all kinds of German beer and foreign wines. Now they specialize in wine- they have one of the most amazing selections you will ever see. They also have some cold beer, including the VERY hard to find but very good Augustiner beer from Munich.

PROS: Unbeatable selection
CONS: Can be expensive....but its wine!

House of Glunz imports huge quantities of cheap French wine for the local liquor chains: that's their bread & butter business. They keep their tiny, antique store because it's a family tradition. Space is tight, selection is limited, quality is very high and sales are frequent. You don't have to be an expert to shop here. Buy what's on sale, then come back and buy a case or two of the best! They have semi-annual tastings, too.

The Scene
This family-run wine store has been around since the 19th century, making it the oldest in Chicago, possibly the entire country. Three rooms (a main space housing most of the stock, a library-style tasting area and…
