For those looking for that special wine, beer or liquor, not to mention a quality cigar, your best bet in Tahoe City is SiPS (formerly known as Lakeview Wine & Spirits). The bottle shop and tasting room is filled with favorite and hard-to-find wines, beers, spirits, cigars and cigarettes. If they don't carry what you are looking for, there is a chance that they can order it for you. This is also a popular bar for locals and visitors in the know.
