When you’re passing through Grand Central Terminal on your way to an engagement or are headed home and want to pick up a bottle of something—for a gathering you’re hosting, or just something nice to have with dinner or while you’re winding down after a long day—Central Cellars is your one-stop-shop for your adult beverage needs. 

Central Cellars, located in the Graybar Passage of Grand Central Terminal across from Track 17, opened in October 2016 and has wines and liquors for every taste and price point.

The shop has wine experts working there so if you’re like me and need a little (or a lot) of help picking out a bottle, there are knowledgeable people nearby to answer questions and guide you toward the best choice for you. Central Cellars has a diverse selection of sakes, red wines, white wines, organic wines, sherry, kosher wines and more. There are also dozens of champagnes and sparkling beverages to choose from.

Perusing through the liquor selection, I’m greeted by familiar names and labels—Grey Goose and Ketel One (among other vodkas), Patron, Bacardi, Nolet’s and Tanqueray Ten gins, Baileys Irish Cream and more. But then there are items like Ole Smoky Moonshine Cherries (fresh maraschino cherries soaked in Ole Smoky’s 100 proof moonshine), 360 Glazed Donut Vodka, The Yamazaki Single Malt whisky and Pappy Van Winkle 20 Year Family Reserve bottles that catch one’s eye. Impromptu beverage buyers can also pick up corkscrews, muddlers, cocktail shakers and other accessories in the shop. 

In addition to in-store purchases (Central Cellars is open Monday through Friday from 8 am-10 pm, as well as Saturday from 10 am-8 pm and Sunday from noon-8 pm), Central Cellars does deliver in Manhattan—see the Customer Service page for more details. You can also order from the store online at any time.

Central Cellars is located at 89 E. 42nd St at Grand Central Terminal, 212.687.1300.
