Drinking in a Grocery Store?

Yes, you can actually bar hop in the Fair Lakes Whole Foods.

As the flagship store for Whole Foods, there are options for all kinds of boozers.

There are 4 different sit-down eateries inside the store, each one selling beer and wine.

  • Seafood featuring fresh seafood and oysters
  • Smokehouse featuring in-house smoked meats
  • Asian Fare - sushi, dumplings, dim sum
  • Specialty eatery featuring all things cheese

There's also a "Whole Sports Bar" with numerous flat screen tv's for your viewing pleasure, beers on tap, food and drink specials and live music on the patio during the summer!

Oh, and there's also a wine tasting room with a handful of enomatic machines. Grab a card, put some money on it and do your own wine tasting! There are 80 wines on tap to choose from. Come for Happy Hour M-F 5-7pm and get FREE appetizers!

I recently visited the wine tasting room and found an unusual wine; a still prosecco. Bright acidity, floral and full of tropical notes, this was the first still prosecco I've had.

And it was on tap in a grocery store!

I had to do a double take when I was upstairs at the wine bar, enjoying my own wine tasting and nibbling on appetizers, that yes, I am in fact, hanging out in a grocery store.

Looking for a change of scenery? Want to go from Japan, to Maine, to Wine Country to Low Country? This place has it all!

Definitely worth a visit for food, drinks and stocking up your pantry.
