Fairfax Liquor has been a staple of Oakland’s Melrose district since the 1960s. Three years ago, the original owners retired and sold the business to the current owners. They honor the store’s history as a black-owned, family-run business by keeping a photo of the original owners on the wall behind the register. They also maintain the retro feel with the casino-green carpet and old school neon signs throughout the store.
The store caters to individuals looking for a good selection of beer, wine, and spirits. They have an impressive selection of liquor both behind the counter and out on display.
