Seattle bars and restaurants are becoming more inclusive of the sober and sober-curious crowd. Thanks to a boom in the zero-proof industry over the last two years, bartenders have an increasing number of tools to make elaborate cocktails for those who don’t drink, whether that’s for Dry January, or just the next round.
Capitol Hill bar Life on Mars has a nonalcoholic cocktail menu for the month, featuring drinks made with ingredients from zero-proof spirit companies like Pathfinder, Lyre, and Seedlip. In Northgate, Watershed Pub & Kitchen offers a robust selection of nonalcoholic cocktails like the Dry Fashioned, made with Lyre’s American Malt, or the Tropical Mist, made with Seedlip’s Garden 180, lime, and pineapple.
Here are eleven great places in Seattle to get a nonalcoholic cocktail, from nonalcoholic renditions of Cosmopolitans to Pathfinder Spritzes and housemade yuzu sodas.
