Here are some of the best places to go for a non-alcoholic substitute that will make your sobriety so much easier!
All Bar One – With a range of All Bar One’s across the UK this pub is a one to keep in mind wherever you are. However a whopping twenty-four are located in the London area so if you’re looking for some London night life but want to keep a fresh head then there’s plenty of options for you to choose from. The All Bar One drinks menu advertises four delicious alcohol-free cocktails, freshly blended (100% fruit and vegetable) smoothies, cold pressed juices and Fever-Tree Light Ginger Beer. If you’re not taking part in dry January but you aren’t interested in anything too strong, they also offer low alcohol Twisted Tonics, only 0.07% alcohol that still brings the mouth-watering flavour of a refreshing and delicious G&T.
The Alchemist – Their ‘Apprentice Mocktails’ are just as delicious and unique as their alcoholic options. The Bubblygum is a great choice if you want to experience the creativity and magic of The Alchemist as the glass arrives with the bubbles frothing over, truly like something from a science lab. With venues in ten major cities in the UK, The Alchemist is definitely a must and whether drinking alcohol or not will provide a unique cocktail experience that will leave you wanting to try more!
The Brink – Alcohol is not an option at this Liverpool pub so there will be no temptation whatsoever to break dry January! As well as general café hot drinks, The Brink offers a great range of refreshingly fruity smoothies and cocktails for less than £3 each. If none of those take your fancy then they can also press a range of fresh fruit and vegetables to make a combination of your choice. If that isn’t enough, then there is also always something going on with a variety of entertainment and events taking place at the venue, from live music to plays to local football matches!
Redemption – Self-proclaimed: ‘London’s healthiest restaurant’, Redemption serves vegan, sugar-free, and wheat-free food with an alcohol-free bar. There are lots of tasty options on offer that are all a great healthy choice! There’s the ‘green is the new black’ smoothie that’s made of baby spinach, avocado, cucumber, pineapple, lime, ginger and coconut water or try a ‘pure salvation’ frutie that contains orange , pineapple, lemon and raspberry puree. Alcohol free beer and wine are also available at less than 70 calories each!
Mark’s Bar – At this London based venue not only are there great ‘responsibility’ mocktails such as the ‘Sobrio Margarita’ and ‘Mulled Apple Juice’ but there is a substantial amount of soft drink options so you will be spoilt for choice! The more common juices and tonics are available but why not try a ‘Real Kombucha Dry Dragon’ or a ‘Luscombe Hot Ginger Beer’ whilst you enjoy the understated luxury of Mark’s Bar.
Revolucion de Cuba – There are a number of ‘Rev’s’ dotted around the UK that invite you to escape to your Cuban experience and it promises to be one you will want to relive. Specifically for those wanting to enjoy an alcohol-free night they offer the Virgin Zombie Slayer, Cherry and Cranberry Mojito, Lavender Lemonade and Fruit Smash as well as ‘Skinny Sipping’ options. With its cool style and brilliant atmosphere these venues are loved by many and offer great menus that will be complemented by your refreshing, alcohol-free drink.
