There’s no doubt Austin has a killer bar scene. Walk down just about any street, and you’re guaranteed to find a funky dive with a brag-worthy outdoor space. The problem is, some of us aren’t drinkers, and it’s not always fun to go to a bar when you’re avoiding alcohol. And there really hasn’t been a place to hang out sans booze… until now.

That’s right. Sans Bar is a completely alcohol-free space to hang with friends. But alcohol-free doesn’t mean boring. Sans Bar is doing it right, with awesome mocktails, healthy food offerings, wellness events like yoga classes, and live music.
Their drink menu features lemonade, bottled beverages, and hand-crafted mocktails that are fun plays on the classics. Yeah, Sans Bar is the ultimate place to lounge and hang with friends without the urge to grab a drink or two of the alcoholic variety.
Another plus in our books? Sans Bar uses a portion of the profits to aid local nonprofits to better the community. High five!

He encountered so many people fighting addiction who needed a safe space to hang with friends without the temptation. So, he came up with a solution. Enter: Sans Bar, a place that “proves you can have fun without drinking.” And we’re totally on board!
