Drizly, Inc., which offers a smartphone app Drizly for fast alcohol delivery, today announced its American expansion offering its service to deliver in Brooklyn. Also, the Drizly app is now available for Android phones via Google Play.
For consumers of legal age, Drizly is like having a liquor store on their smartphone, says the company. With a retail delivery network in New York, Drizly covers consumers in Williamsburg, Fort Greene, Brooklyn Heights, Dumbo, Park Slope and Boerum Hill to get alcohol delivered in just 20-40 minutes, the company claims. Products on Drizly cost the same as they do in the liquor store.

“Why go to the liquor store when the liquor store will come to you for the same price?” asked Nick Rellas, founder and CEO of Drizly. “After having such success with Drizly’s Manhattan launch, rapidly expanding into Brooklyn was a natural. We are so excited to deliver speed, convenience and selection to the legal drinkers of Brooklyn.”
How Drizly Works in Brooklyn:
- Download Drizly to your iPhone.
- Sign up and add your favorite beverages to your cart.
- Check out, enter discount codes, pay (same prices as in the store) and tip your driver, all right from the Drizly app.
