There’s no reason not to go out drinking just because you’re not drinking. Even though so many Bay Area bars use the best fresh juices, herbs, and house-made syrups for cocktails, until fairly recently many have been slow to promote mixing these ingredients into their non-alcoholic beverages. Now more places are offering drinks that go beyond Arnold Palmers and Faux-jitos, with serious attention to savory, spicy, interesting ingredients for booze-free bar-hoppers. No doubt the movement within the liquor industry toward bartender health and wellness is a factor.
All of the bars and restaurants on this map offer a minimum of three on-menu alcohol-free cocktails in an environment where both drinkers and teetotalers can meet for drinks. For whatever reason you decide not to consume (and reminder: it’s nobody else’s business), you’ll be in good hands at any of the great places on this list.
