Have you visited the new TOPS liquor store in Ballito? If not, it’s time you did. So much more than just a liquor store, this unique, beautifully designed space is filled to the brim with a massive range of wine and liquor, as well as a variety of gifting and snack options. You simply have to see it to believe it.
Over two and a half times the size of the original TOPS outlet at Lifestyle Centre in Ballito, this one-of-a-kind store incorporates an expansive wine department, walk-in beer fridge and intimate, interesting spaces for gin, whiskey, rum, tequila, cognac, vodka and international speciality beers and craft beers. And it’s not just about the liquor. Think beautiful floral arrangements, a biltong bar, cigars, gifting, snacks and chocolates … what’s not to love?
Lifestyle Centre and Lifestyle TOPS owners, Paul and Bruce Rencken have certainly achieved their vision of wanting to create an ‘experiential’ rather than a traditional liquor store and the sophisticated, contemporary design and easy flow make for a wonderful shopping experience.
This certainly is another feather in the cap of the Lifestyle Centre, and a commendable addition to the wonderful aesthetic and vibe of The Market and Eat Street.
“Our focus is to continue creating experiential spaces where Ballito families and friends can enjoy coming together and connecting. We aim to be an extension of how we live life, the Ballito way,” says Bruce.
“South Africans are social by nature and enjoying a drink together often forms the basis of gathering with family or friends, usually accompanied by an excellent meal, a braai, or a sporting or cultural event. Lifestyle TOPS is no longer your average, run-of-the-mill liquor store. It is now a magnificent environment where anyone will feel comfortable browsing and selecting from a broad range of products to enjoy, simply for their daily tipple or for any social occasion, activity or adventure.”
