Hold the Liquor, Keep the Spirit!

Zesty mocktails to keep the party going sans alcohol.

Whether the benefits of dry January compelled you to keep it going, or you’re looking for an evening spot to catch up with friends that don’t include alcohol, Denver offers a plethora of options. We’ve listed ten of our favorite mocktail watering holes where you can get artisanal drinks, and hold the liquor.

Honey Elixir Bar

2636 Walnut St. Denver, CO 80205

Honey Elixir Bar, located on Walnut Street is great for an intimate chat where you can cozy up on one of their couches or sit side by side in a booth; and has a whole list of dazzling mocktails under the ‘Potions’ section of their menu.

The Wolf’s Tailor

4058 Tejon St, Denver, CO 80211

We’ve shouted out The Wolf’s Tailor for their innovative and delicious seasonal pre-fixe menu before, but did you know they also have an amazing list of mocktails to pair with it? Get a reservation before this season’s menu comes to a close!

Frasca

1738 Pearl St, Boulder, CO 80302

If you find yourself up north in Boulder, head over to Frasca on Pearl Street for Italian food so amazing it won a James Beard award. Find their mocktails under the low-to-no-proof section of the menu.

Bezel

1550 Court Pl, Denver, CO 80202

Bezel is located at 16th Street Mall and is known for its beautiful bar and sophisticated cocktails. Their staff can get creative with you to remove the alcohol from any cocktail that catches your eye, or you can sip on their delicious lavender lemonade.

Blue Island Oyster Bar

2625 E 2nd Ave, Denver, CO 80206

Transport yourself to summer on the East Coast with some shucking good oysters (their pun, not ours)! Take a gander at their zero-proof menu drinks for some playful and fruity mocktail options.

EDGE Steakhouse

1111 14th St, Denver, CO 80202

Indulge in fine dining at EDGE Steakhouse where you can get the finest cuts of meat and a list of no-booze cocktails that will wet your whistle.

Room for Milly

1615 Platte St Suite 145, Denver, CO 80202

Room for Milly is a great place to meet the gals with a modern and colorful space and light bites to go with their zero-proof menu.

Lady Jane

2021 W 32nd Ave, Denver, CO 80211

Lady Jane is a chic bar in Denver with unique design elements and a great list of cheese boards. Their non-alcoholic menu has some fun seasonal options like a Pumpkin Flip or Spiced Apple Sour, so give them a try!

Forget Me Not

227 Clayton St, Denver, CO 80206

Forget Me Not is another one of Denver’s lively bars that give off the essence of the gilded age, decorated with jewel tones and gold accents. And as they say, their zero-proof drinks may not have alcohol, but they have plenty of spirit!

Del Mar by Rooted

1401 Pearl St, Boulder, CO 80302

For fresh seafood – whether a poke bowl or raw bar – Del Mar by Rooted is a fantastic spot to settle in. And while you’re there, don’t miss out on their Scot-Tea Palmer or Champagne Papi, both of which are sans alcohol.
