Whether because of Dry January, a spur-of-the-moment decision, or a full-time lifestyle, sometimes alcohol isn’t an option. For anyone abstaining, there are many great places in Seattle to get refreshing zero-proof drinks (beyond the caffeinated options like coffee covered in other guides). From the greatest ginger beer in town to ostentatious tiki-influenced mocktails, these bars and restaurants know that boozy beverages aren’t the be-all, end-all.

1. Eight Row

7102 Woodlawn Ave NE
Seattle, WA 98115
(206) 294-3178
Visit Website

This Green Lake farm to table restaurant showcases the ingredients, influences, and aesthetics from the Wenatchee, WA, orchards chef David Nichols grew up around — and that extends to the drinks list, including housemade sodas with seasonal shrubs, such as black cherry and carrot, with habanero and ginger. There is also kombucha available from local purveyor Culture Shock, in green tea and smoked pomegranate flavors.

2. No Bones Beach Club

5410 17th Ave NW
Seattle, WA 98107
(206) 453-3233
Visit Website

This boisterous Ballard tiki bar is notable for its cocktails and excellent vegan food menu, but it also offers many well-crafted non-alcoholic drinks, like the Coco-Chill, a tropical mixture of pineapple, orange, coconut, and nutmeg. The beverages can help wash down enormously portioned dishes like eggplant fries, sizzling lettuce wraps, and jackfruit flautas.

This intimate Japanese restaurant in Fremont, known for its fantastic soba and tempura, keeps sober guests happy with wonderfully refreshing soda flavors, like hibiscus red shiso grapefruit, as well as a concise list of Japanese teas.

4. Stampede Cocktail Club

119 N 36th St
Seattle, WA 98103
(206) 420-2792
Visit Website

As the name suggests, cocktails are the focus at this Fremont hot spot — however, Stampede’s skilled bartenders will mix several different mocktails upon request, some of which are made with Seedlip, a non-alcoholic distilled “spirit” that comes in three flavors. Don’t forget to order the bar’s signature dumplings as a snack.

5. Rachel’s Ginger Beer

Copy Link
1610 12th Ave
Seattle, WA 98122

Every mural-coated and plant-filled location of this local chainlet (which recently expanded to Amazonland) boasts a solid selection of liquor additions, of course, but it’s important to remember the company’s alcohol-free foundation: ginger beer. The drinks are tart and tangy, whether in original form or in multiple flavors, from staples like blood orange to newer CBD-infused white tea and raspberry slushies.

Between the local Mystic kombucha on tap and the rich selection of house sodas — like rosemary lemon and turmeric pineapple — this spacious, super-hip cafe and bar in Capitol Hill has all non-drinkers covered. Don’t sleep on the lovely brunch offerings either, such as tahini toast with bananas and sunflower seeds.

Here’s a key piece of info for booze-free imbibers in Seattle: all of Tom Douglas’ many restaurants have some sort of mocktail menu. But the selection at Denny Triangle’s bustling late-night restaurant reigns supreme, with outstanding options like lemonade with apple ginger syrup and mint, and a citrusy concoction flavored with Prosser, WA, plums.

8. Life On Mars

Seattle, WA 98122
(206) 323-9166
Visit Website

This vinyl album-focused bar in Capitol Hill from several Seattle music veterans has a plant-based menu, and plenty of well-crafted cocktails — but there are some interesting non-boozy drinks that rotate seasonally. Two on the menu for winter is a concoction called the Tiki Night (with som berry shrub, coconut, and lime) and the 110 Thai (with thai basil and tonic).

9. Bottlehouse

Seattle, WA 98122
(206) 708-7164

Considering its main purpose is slinging fine wine, this cozy neighborhood shop in Madrona does a bang-up job with non-boozy bevvies, too. The thyme iced tea usually hits the spot, along with the persimmon vanilla soda.

This jazzy Columbia City music venue boasts an entire mocktail section, a far cry from the usual soda water and lime. From an Island Breeze (orange, pineapple, cranberry, and orgeat almond syrup) to a Magda Rita (limeade, hibiscus syrup, soda), The Royal Room has enough mocktails to keep teetotalers satiated visit after visit.
