As you'd expect from a liquor store that doubles as a bar, Maria's has a tremendous selection of bottled beers. But less obvious is the music programming, which—shout out to Joe Bryl—includes some of the most carefully curated DJ sets in the city. You're probably not that familiar with Acid Jazz b-sides or deep Neo-Soul cuts, but this place keeps the heads ringing regardless.
