We all seem to be working so hard and such long hours that hitting the hooch every night just isn’t possible for most of us, if we don’t want to burn out or freak out! So we thought we’d put together a compilation of establishments that get our vote for their non-alcoholic offerings.
Redemption is a detoxer’s dream; there is no temptation at this completely alcohol free gastro bar. This extra healthy café at the end of Golborne Road offers a range of fresh fruit juices, enticing mocktails with imaginative involvements of thirst quenching coconuts waters, served alone or along side vegetarian and raw dishes.

La Bodegra Negra
Hidden away behind a ‘sex shop’ in Soho, La Bodgera Negra offers all the seduction and naughtiness of Soho night out but with a well considered booze-less section on their menu called ‘refrescos’; you can get juiced up on coolers, ice teas and fizzes without the killer come down the next day.

This vegetarian restaurant lies just off Regent St. Their menus are suitable for vegans, gluten free, plus there are a whole load of options for fresh raw juices and a long enticing list of herbal teas and infusions. This sort of place makes us feel very virtuous!

All day devouring is an absolute treat at Nopi. Their non-alcoholic cocktails focus of fresh vegetables, fruits and herbs, as you’d expect from an Ottolenghi joint. Most dribble worthy, we think is this mix of Kumquat, passion fruit, orange and lemon juices, with kumquat syrup and rose water. Lush! http://www.nopi-restaurant.com/

Lounge lover is a sure hit for most occasions and if mocktails are what you are after, they won’t disappoint, with the creative concoctions listed under the ‘Virgin’ section of the cocktail menu. Lounge, love and then wake up fresh as a daisy!
