Five Points Bottle Shop, co-owned by brothers Bush and Sachin Patel, has been a landmark in the Five Points neighborhood for a quarter century and promises to be for another, at least. The bright blue and red painted brick exterior gives the appearance of a vintage convenience store, but proves deceiving. Only the hand-painted signage along the outside of the building offers a clue to the treasures and personalized service within.
Walk in and find yourself immersed in a maze of tall wooden shelving stocked to the ceiling with every kind of wine, liquor or beer that you can imagine; it’s a tight fit, but it’s worth it. The Westside location is a‘warehouse’ -style store with wide aisles and high ceilings. Folks drive from all around—Atlanta, South Georgia or as far away as Tennessee and the Carolinas—to browse the shelves and immerse themselves in the staggering selection of favorites and rarities.
Five Points Lumpkin Street and Atlanta Hwy. locations are both open
Monday-Saturday 9 a.m. - 11:30 p.m. and
