  • Brady's Wine Warehouse is one of two local distributors to partner with Drizly, an app and website that facilitates home delivery of alcohol.

In a city that takes great pride in the go cup and a region with drive-through daiquiri service, the ability to imbibe just became even easier. 

Drizly, a new alcohol delivery app and website launched July 9, meaning drinkers will have to do even less work to get their buzz on. 

Wine, beer, liquor and a variety of mixers are available for purchase through the service, which promises the goods will be delivered within an hour of purchase. 


The business started in Boston and has expanded to 16 locations nationwide, and locally it is partnering with Brady’s Wine Warehouse and Pearl Wine Co. Prices and stock will reflect those of the distributors, says co-founder and Vice President of Expansion Justin Robinson.  

“People in New Orleans are now getting around to using technology-driven companies like Uber and we feel that it’s certainly a market that is ripe for this — not just because it’s a drinking culture, but because of the current demographics and a growing aptitude for technology,” Robinson says.

Users can order online through the company’s website or download the app for either iPhone or Android devices. Once an account is set up, the nearest retailer’s products will appear and users can add whatever they wish to their cart and check out online.

There is no added cost to the products but there is a $2 delivery fee and tipping the driver is encouraged, Robinson says.

Alcohol will be delivered until 11 p.m. daily and users can also send alcoholic gifts to friends and family of legal drinking age.

To prevent delivery to under-age persons, drivers will scan the purchaser’s ID using a scan identification system, similar to what one would use when scanning barcodes. 

The service is available to residents in the French Quarter, Treme, Garden District, Metairie, Mid-City, Gentilly, Audubon, Elmwood and Gretna. More locations may be added. 

Users can enter the promo code NOLA15 throughout the month of July and receive $15 off their first order.
