Riley's is conveniently located right off State Street, and is a haven for all ages and events: college kids trying to tie one on for less, couples trying to find something nice for the evening, beer and wine dudes looking for something new, or old, good and familiar, and people just stepping in to see how much they have before settling for some JD or a 12-pack. Upstairs they have a nice collection of fine liquors...I've only been up once, but I'm plenty happy downstairs on my paycheck, and I want for nothing. The beer selection is impressive, with a great range of regional and national microbrews, imports, and macros. There are also several aisles of wine, and a good collection of liquor around the south edge. The overall service is mediocre, and I get more tips from distributors passing through than I do from most of the employees. To be fair, a couple of them do know their stuff, but I don't always see them, and the other employees don't seem to know as much, so I don't bother. Prices are good, but not the lowest around.
