For a night out with no hang-over, London’s bars have just the thing; try these hotspots for some of the city’s best mocktails
Have a night off the hard stuff with London’s tastiest mocktails
This aptly-named cocktail bar is London’s healthiest restaurant and bar. Since all drinks are refined sugar and alcohol-free, you can get one of each.
ASIAN SUNSHINE, MNKY HSE
This Latin-American restaurant in Mayfair has a roster of very talented mixologists who revel in shaking up a wide selection of signature cocktails, MNKY botanicals and a list of pure and heady mezcals. But tucked away on the mocktails menu is where you’ll find some hidden gems. We can’t get enough of the Amazon River; punchy ginger juice mixed with lime, sugar, mint and apple juice, topped with lemonade.
While Caravan’s food pairs fantastically with wine, it’s selection of virgin cocktails will do the job just as well. We love the Virgin Apple Mojito for its tangy kick.
The star of Hawksmoor’s show is undoubtedly the meat, but don’t disregard the importance of a tasty tipple to wash things down with. They’re Cucumber & Ginger Swizzle works a treat.
PEG + PATRIOT
The mocktails menu at Peg + Patriot is so superb, you really won’t miss the hard stuff. They have three non-alcoholic drinks on the menu that taste exactly like the real deal. The Gin & Tonic is made with water which has been distilled with the flavours of gin and added to tonic.
Dandelyan has really honed their mocktails menu. The decor alone is reason to go, but if you’re after something to sip, our favourite is the Bradsell cocktail made with cold brew coffee, malt syrup and chai.
THE ARTESIAN AT THE LANGHAM HOTEL
Having multiple awards under its belt, you can expect great things of the mocktails here. They’ve got a whole menu of veggie cocktails but if you’re going alcohol-free, they have an innovative list of booze-less drink like the Throw With Dough made with tomato, carrot and quinine.
THE BOOK CLUB
The Book Club is the social scene to be seen in London’s East End. The drinks menu hosts a wealth of creatively-named cocktails like Tequllin’ Me Softly. Even better, they’ve just launched a new Zero-Proof cocktail menu designed to give customers the full cocktail flavour experience minus ‘the sauce’. Our favourites are the Beetroot Espresso Martini (pictured) and the Turmeric Spritz.
