Look, we're a spoilt bunch. Not just content with getting food delivered — from actually good restaurants and without having to speak to anyone, no less — we want to be able to get booze to our doorstep as well. Many delivery services allow you to tack on a six-pack with your meal, but this week one of the biggest food delivery services, Deliveroo, will start delivering alcohol-only orders in Melbourne.
The service already delivered booze, but only when it was accompanying a food order — UberEATS does the same thing. But now, when you open the Deliveroo app, you'll notice that bottle shops like Blackhearts & Sparrows, Melbourne Wine Store and the Grosvenor Hotel will pop up as well. You can place orders for booze from these stores between noon and 11pm and it will be delivered in 30 minutes or less.
Of course, there are a few other booze delivery services operating in Melbourne, like Tipple and QuickBottle, and both Foodora and Menulog allow you to place alcohol-only orders as well. This just adds another option into the mix — here's a list of the bottle shops that will deliver through Deliveroo.
