The Top Mocktail Bars in the USA

The Top Mocktail Bars in the USA


You work hard. Balancing work, life, family, social obligations…and all of that before factoring in some fun time for yourself and your own interests! At the end of a long week, you deserve to have some fun.

Suppose, however, that you do not have time for a hangover. Or you have a mini marathon tomorrow. Maybe you are expecting, or perhaps choose not to indulge in alcohol for personal or religious reasons.

Choosing not to drink alcohol doesn’t mean you can’t go out and enjoy a great cocktail in your city. A growing number of bars across the country are starting to recognize the growing percentage of Americans who want a fun night out without the booze.

What is a Mocktail Bar?

A Mocktail bar (or sober bar) is an establishment that serves non-alcoholic beverages. These days, you don’t need the intoxicating effects of alcohol to enjoy a delicious beverage. Here are a few of our hand-picked favorites – what some have called the Top Mocktail Bars in America:

Sans Bar
Founded in 2017 by Chris Marshall, Austin’s first sober bar was opened with the goal to create a space where everyone is accepted and seen for who they are no matter where they are on the sobriety spectrum. Creating community is at the heart of Sans Bar, offering an event space, elevated zero-proof cocktails, wines, and beers.

Umbrella Dry Drinks
Choosing to consume a dry drink doesn’t mean missing out on all of the pageantry. Umbrella Dry Drinks is located in Alexandria, Virginia and offers sophisticated versions of non-alcoholic cocktails for any that choose to stay dry.

Ocean Beach Cafe
Offering sun, sand, and sobriety, Ocean Beach Cafe is a non-alcoholic bar located a block from Ocean beach with all the best eats and (dry) drinks. Check them out next time you are in San Francisco, California!

Volstead by Unity
Nestled in the heart of the City of Brotherly Love, Volstead serves zero-alcohol mocktails with a full menu to boot. Enjoy the kind of food and drinks that would fuel everyone’s favorite boxer. After all, you’ll be sober enough to join him for training!

Soft Spirits  
It pays to be first. Soft Spirits is the first (of now, many) nonalcoholic bottle shops in Los Angeles. Enjoy a premium assortment of the best dry wines, beers, and spirits to go along with your dinner…or lunch…or breakfast (zero booze - we certainly aren’t judging!).

Spirited Away
Buffalo, New York is home to many of the things we love about America, including this brand-new alcohol-free bottle shop. Enjoy your favorite wines, beers, spirits, and bitters whenever the temps dip below cold or blow past buffalo-sauce hot.

The City that Never Sleeps can party even later into the night at one of the five locations across New York City. Inviting friends to Brooklyn or Manhattan? Pick up a non-alcoholic crowd pleaser. Visiting the Bronx, Queens, or Staten Island? Be sure you don’t show up empty-handed. Whatever you bring will be perfect for anyone, regardless of how they choose to celebrate.

Sans Bar
Founded in 2017 by Chris Marshall, Austin’s first sober bar was opened with the goal to create a space where everyone is accepted and seen for who they are no matter where they are on the sobriety spectrum. Creating community is at the heart of Sans Bar, offering an event space, elevated zero-proof cocktails, wines, and beers.

Everything is bigger in Texas, including the need for an alcohol alternative. Sipple was founded by people that love to live and live to love. They offer a variety of booze alternative options that will help you keep cool in the Houston heat.

No & Low Inc
It gets cold in Macomb, Michigan. Sometimes you need something to warm you up during a long winter (or summer) night. Enjoy all the heart-warming feelings of your favorite mocktails with offerings from No & Low Inc!

The Zero Proof
New York City is known for a lot, but an emerging mocktail industry might be something no one saw coming. The Zero Proof gives you an elegant solution to your favorite “poisons.” Drink up, and use those calories you would have consumed in cocktails on a well-earned slice of New York’s finest pizza pies.

Better Rhodes
Madison, Connecticut is set in the heart of the American Northeast, and nobody does fall like New England. Enjoy an alcohol-free twist on your favorite old fashioned or cider recipes and settle in to enjoy premium flavors, with premium ingredients, during a premium time of year.

What do they all have in common?
One cool fact about all of these top mocktail bars? They all serve Ritual. Ritual is a zero-proof liquor replacement that gives you all the flavor of your favorite spirits with NONE of the negative side effects of alcohol. Meticulously crafted with the finest ingredients, Ritual helps you mark a moment when alcohol isn’t on the menu (for whatever reason).

Going out isn’t just for weekends anymore.
Always remember, choosing to drink or not is always your choice, and we recognize that it can be an intensely personal decision. Or not, and that’s kind of the whole point. However you choose to live your life, we want you to be happy in who you are and the decisions you make. Go to one of these top sober bars with pride in your heart and non-alcoholic drinks in your belly. Enjoying good times with great drinks and better company doesn’t have to come at the costs of drinking.

So crush your WOD, nail that mid-week presentation, grab your favorite going-out shirt and hit the town running. Happy Hour can now last even longer, and be enjoyed whenever you want. No more sneaking into the office with your sunglasses still on and a Gatorade in your bag. Live more of your life uninterrupted, with a clean conscience and a cleaner way to celebrate the end of the day. Whether your weekend plans include tailgating, camping, or settling up to your favorite patio, we have you covered.
