Getting Drunk Just Got Easier As Three New Booze-Delivery Apps Enter Dallas Market.

Pizza delivery is available with a few swipes and taps on your phone's screen. So it's probably no surprise that its best friend — booze — has now arrived on the local scene, too.

In recent months, three separate smartphone app-driven services — Lash Delivery, Minibar and Topshelf, all of which are available on iPhone, iPad and Android — have opened up shop in the Dallas market, offering an array of choices in alcohol delivery and affording you the chance to set up a party more efficiently or to just have a six-pack of Deep Ellum IPA brought to your door without your ever having to pants on.

How wonderfully American. How very intoxicating. But is it all its hyped up to be?

Here, we took a look at these three primary alcohol delivery apps now offering services here in Dallas, so you can best decide which one's suited to your needs.

Minibar. This app is to alcohol delivery what, let's say, OK Cupid is to online dating. It's not quite the best, but you'll have some fun with it just the same. It offers local, domestic and imported beers, plus wine, champagne, liquor, ciders, mixers, garnishes and even some cocktail recipes if you need them. The prices aren’t terrible, either: Here, you can order a $2 can of Dos Equis or a sixer of Revolver’s Blood & Honey for just short of $11. Thing is, Minibar has a $25 minimum. Bulk ordering is the name of this app's game — which is alright for a party but maybe not the best for a simple nightcap.

Lash Delivery. This one's the Ferrari of local alcohol delivery, folks. It provides similar selections and prices to Minibar — with no purchase minimum and the added perk of waving delivery charges on orders over 35 bucks — but, really, booze is just the start. With Lash, you can also order junk food, lighters, bottle openers, 5-Hour Energy drinks, Gatorade drinks and, most hilarious of all, condoms. Because who knows where the night will lead? Lash has got you covered. Literally.

Topshelf. This app tried, I think. It has some off-putting login issues and is only compatible with iPhones and iPads with Apple's latest iOS. If you can get it to work, it contains the same basic content as the other., but with fewer frills. In other words: It's not worth fighting through the hiccups of the app's design. It's probably best to go ahead and skip it all together.
