Best Mocktail Bars in USA

The market for non-alcoholic spirits has grown considerably in recent years to cater to the rising demographic of Americans who have embraced the mindful drinking movement. These individuals want to enjoy a night out with their friends while moderating their alcohol intake. Some like to mix in low-ABV drinks between their full-proof cocktails while others refrain from drinking alcohol all together.

No matter your drinking preference, there are places that you can go to socialize and have fun. There has been a growing number of mocktail bars and non-alcoholic bottle shops popping up throughout the country, offering high quality alcohol alternatives that don’t compromise flavor, authenticity, or sophistication. These establishments allow everyone to get in on the toast and enjoy the flavors of a specially-crafted cocktail, without any of the side-effects of alcohol.
