After a long, tiring day at work, if you don’t have a spouse or a dog, the next best thing to be greeted by is a bottle of ice cold beer. But let’s face it, nobody wants to spend their first few hours of post-work freedom poking around NTUC Fairprice searching for a cheap six pack. So you turn to delivery.
Alcohol delivery is also a great lifesaver when you’re trying to make sure people turn up for the company’s annual event you’re planning for.
Here are some of the best alcohol delivery options in Singapore.

1. Mabuk Monkey
Mabuk Monkey are the go-to guys if you want to kick back on your couch after work with a couple of beers. They deliver within 1 hour and have not only a good selection of cheap beers like Tiger at some of the cheapest single-can and bottle prices we could find but also craft beers from Brewerkz, St Bernardus and BrewDog. Pretty much everything you could ask for in an online alcohol delivery service.
They’re not very strong on liquor however, but we like that it delivers everything ice-cold in ice boxes that you get to keep.
For 1-hour alcohol delivery, call 6294 1714.
Delivery: Delivers in 1 hour between 6pm to 12am (except Mondays). Free delivery for orders over $50, or else a delivery charge of $10 will apply. Surcharges for Sentosa and NParks apply.
Good for: All-round winner, and deserves bonus points for the craft beer.
2. Alcohol Delivery
Because of their good SEO, Alcohol Delivery comes out on top of Google every time. The selection is a bit different from Mabuk Monkey’s but some overlapping items are a little bit more expensive (Tiger beer costs 50 cents more). Alcohol Delivery also delivers hard liquor like whiskey, vodka, tequila et al. Their strength lies in the fact that they take orders 24/7, so you can get your fix at 7am on a Monday morning if that’s how you roll.
Their website looks chic and very easy to use, but in comparison with the other companies, the prices are nothing to rave about.
Delivery: Delivers in 1 hour. Free delivery for orders over $50, or else a delivery charge of $10 will apply. Delivers from 6pm to 2am daily.
Good for: Competitive prices, wide selection and 24-hour alcohol delivery.
Paneco specialises more in international beer, which means that if you’re taste buds are more towards Singaporean Uncle, you might not find your typical local brew.
They do carry the usual Tiger Beer and Hoeegarden but usually only in 24-bottle cases. In which case, the promotions onoffer are actually really worth it.
For hard liquor, Paneco offers some very competitive prices. If you aren’t in a rush, they offer next-day delivery with no minimum.
Orders after 4pm will be delivered the day after the next. For same-day delivery, be sure to order by 2pm.
Delivery: Delivers 7 days a week but free delivery is only for next-day delivery with orders placed before 4pm. For same-day delivery, a charge of $5 applies.
Good for: Bulk purchases, hard liquor and liquor gift sets.
4. Liquor Bar
Liquor Bar‘s selection is pretty similar to Alcohol Delivery and Paneco. They don’t do single cans or bottle of beer, only cases. Their prices are okay, but not super competitive.
A major downside of Liquor Bar is that it only offers free alcohol delivery on orders over $300 and there’s a minimum for alcohol orders at $80. For same-day deliveries, a $10 charge applies.
Delivery: Free delivery for orders over $300. Same-day deliveries chargeable at $10. Surcharges for Sentosa and NParks apply.
Good for: Champagne lovers and those looking for niche alcohol.
RedMart is a well-known groceries online store and it’s a super convenient option if you just want to order all your party supplies on RedMart. It has very competitive prices for Heineken and Carlsberg beer cases.
If you are already a LiveUp subscriber, you get free delivery for orders above $40 and cash rebates. Non-LiveUp subscribers get free delivery for orders above $100.
Delivery: LiveUp subscribers enjoy free delivery for orders above $40 and non-LiveUp subscribers get free delivery for orders above $100.
Good for: Beer chuggers who buys beer in bulk, party planners and LiveUp subscribers.
