A longtime westside Los Angeles favorite, Wally’s Wine and Spirits features one of the best selections of wine, beer and liquor in the area, all from its small storefront along Westwood Boulevard. Wine collectors and the uninitiated alike browse the store’s aisles, looking for everything from rare French labels to under-$20 steals to bring to a party. But while Wine comes first in the store’s name, Wally’s also has an impressive selection of craft beers and hard liquor, whiskey in particular. In addition, the store hosts tastings on select Saturdays, with winery representatives or others pouring different varietals and explaining the winemaking process. Its dinners, held at area restaurants and hotels, are some of the hottest tickets on the oenophile’s calendar.
