Are you one of the millions that might not have sworn off drinking forever, but at least want to make it through January without a sip of libations? Well you are in luck. Dallas is full of bars, restaurants and breweries (yes, breweries) where you can hang with friends while sipping on drinks all without a drop of alcohol.
There is no shortage of bars with a sublime mocktail list. Bar Louie, At Bistro and The Monarch are just a few of Dallas’s upscale spots that have embraced the mocktail movement. If you want to relive the 70s in all its glory while maintaining a levelhead, scoot on over to the Design District’s Double D’s night club. The drink menu includes a long list like the Disco Party made with non alcoholic tequila and orange cordial or the Footloose made with non alcoholic whiskey, lemon, sour and mint.
If you want to join your craft beer-loving buddies for an afternoon, suggest meeting up at Community Beer Co. in downtown Dallas. In addition to 12 housemade craft beers on tap, four housemade ciders and a long list of cocktails, the local beer company also makes five varieties of non-alcoholic beer for you to choose from. Not only are they alcohol-free, each NA beer has a max of 30 calories per serving, so you can drink all you want without worrying about developing a mock-beer belly.
