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, 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.
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!
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 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.
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.
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 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 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 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!
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.
