East Village Wines

138 1st Ave.
New York, NY 10009
The tone on the phone can be a bit brusque; the service, quick and no-nonsense. This must be how the neighborhood loves their wine stores, because Bob Chu's East Village Wines has been a fixture since 1944, a huge accomplishment in this time of ungodly New York City rents. They do boast comparatively low prices, and a selection of wines and liquors that is impressively inclusive (organic wines, mead), and caters to tastes both highbrow and low (jug wine, anyone?).
