Liquor Library will also be the first airport liquor store that will operate in the United States without duty-free restrictions. The innovative retailer will offer a wide variety of beer, wine, sprits, cigars, cigarettes, and on-the-go essentials that will be priced competitively with on-Strip liquor stores.

“Las Vegas visitors will love the convenience of picking up their wine and spirits while at the airport,” says Richard Worthington, co-owner of Liquor Library. “Once you get to your hotel it isn’t easy to get to the liquor store, and with Liquor Library, it can be the first stop of your vacation. Plus, wine, spirits and cigars all make great last-minute gifts.”

The design of the intimate store has an emphasis on form as well as function. Consisting of only 1,350 square feet, the interior features vertical, library-style shelving that allow for more efficient product display and presentation. Dark hardwood floors, white marble countertops, library ladders and themed graphic display walls all add to the uniqueness of the Liquor Library brand and customer experience. Employees wearing librarian-inspired uniforms will provide excellent customer service and a memorable welcome to Las Vegas.

Liquor Library is co-owned by local business leaders Richard Worthington and Christian Haase. Liquor Library will be open from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m., daily. More information about Liquor Library is available on the website at, on Facebook at, on Twitter @LiquorLibraryLV and by calling 702-261-3100.
