What’s better than ordering a special bottle from luxury hotel room service? Ordering a special bottle to be delivered straight to your own front door all those other days of the year when you’re home.
Minibar www.minibardelivery.com is a mobile app that lets users easily order fine wine, luxury spirits and craft beer for delivery in less than an hour, and thanks to a $1.8 million boost to its bottom line — plus the team addition of a former Uber executive – the ASAP bottle service is expanding to Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and New Jersey from its initial 2014 start-up in New York.
In addition to fast and free delivery, Minibar also offers pairing recommendations, cocktail recipes, tasting notes and an option that allows users to send gifts. Mixers, bar supplies and other items are also available, making Minibar a one stop destination for all drinking needs without risking a DUI. To adhere to legal age requirements for alcohol purchase, Minibar users need to confirm they are of legal drinking age prior to order. Upon delivery, each vendor is responsible for verifying the customer’s I.D., ensuring they are of legal drinking age. A $20 restocking fee, billed to the card on file, insures that underage drinkers can’t game the system.
Available on web, iOS, and Android, Minibar offers a solution to having to leave a party to restock, for instance, by connecting users with local vendors based on their address. Consumers can choose from a growing selection of inventory available in their local liquor store, providing easy at home delivery in less than 60 minutes to anyone 21 or older within the Minibar delivery area. Your move, Starbucks. There are going to be a lot of Minibar customers in need of coffee and aspirin delivery. www.minibardelivery.com
