50 Unique Liquor Store Names

Updated on February 5, 2017

Let’s face it, there will always be a demand for alcohol so as long as it’s legal, which makes for a nearly economy-proof line of business!

Okay, not really “economy-proof” per se, but as long as people have money, you’re store will be pretty financially secure!

How to Name Your Business

How to Open a Liquor Store

Opening a liquor store doesn’t have to be a lengthy process, but it does require a lump sum to begin! Liquor is not cheap, even buying it wholesale.

First things first though, you need to find a prime location. Look for a storefront nearby clubs, bars, tattoo shops, adult stores, and anything of the like as these stores will already have a customer base that will likely want to check your store out as well!

Found a good location? Great! Sign that contract and move onto getting the appropriate licensing. Most, if not all places will require some kind of special liquor store license which is something you will want to get in order to operate legally. Also, you will certainly need to register your business with the state’s Division of Corporations and on a local level with the city and/or county. This kind of registration will be more for tax purposes and is completely necessary! Beware: Liquor licenses can be very scarce, and very expensive!

In the midst of everything else, you need to figure out how you’re going to stock your store and keep it organized. You can build custom shelving which is much cheaper, or you can purchase shelving. You also need stock for that shelving so begin exploring options as far as suppliers go. Be sure to compare prices between suppliers and see if you can haggle a bit too. In this hungry economy, you’ll probably be surprised how much of a discount you can really score.

Have a location, licensing, and a supplier all set to go? Perfect! One more thing you want to make sure you do is market your business! Begin putting out “coming soon” advertisements months before you open your doors, and even schedule a grand opening event to draw in a crowd. Oh, one more thing you will need to draw people in is a liquor store name!


Liquor Store Names

Names can seriously make or break a business, so you will want to make sure your name puts forth a good impression from the get go! Just what should you be looking for in liquor store names? Here are some things worth considering:

  • Types of beverages: If you are selling only liquor, then it’s pretty cut and dry. If you’ll also be selling wine and craft beer, then try to make this clear in the name one way or another.
  • Use location: Location, location, location! You are a liquor store owner, therefore, you're up against a lot of competition. So, how do you go about getting the customers to go to you instead of them? Using the location in the name can help them find you easier, believe it or not!
  • Your name: There’s never anything wrong with naming your store after YOU! Stand proud as an entrepreneur, and let everyone know who owns the place!
  • Alliterations: Alliterations, going back to 7th grade english, are nothing but a repetition of the same sound in subsequent words. Ex. Lenny’s Liquorland
