Arlis Wines & Liquors (248 E. 204th Street, 718.450.3133) is a recent addition to the commercial strip on 204th Street below Mosholu Parkway. Unlike your typical Bronx liquor store which can sometimes fall in the shady category, this place actually looks pretty serviceable. Nice looking storefront with fully-stocked shelves...
I'm pretty sure you'll be out of luck if you go there searching for your favorite bottle of 2000 Bordeaux, but it's nice to be able to have a spot to get some cheap Yellow Tail. Plus, it's great to see new businesses opening up on 204th in this poopy economy.
Welcome Arlis Wines and Liquors!
Just an FYI: We also noticed that the long vacant "DOD's" bar over on Bainbridge Avenue by the Williamsbridge Oval will be replaced by a dental office... Good news for the strip because "DOD's" was just sitting there gathering graffiti.
