15 Austin Restaurants & Bars With Alcohol-Free Menu Options
1. Sans Bar
Founder Chris Marshall believes a bar doesn't have to serve booze to provide a raucous night out.

With both low-proof and no-proof drinks – try the Old Fashioned with Ritual "whiskey" – plus ABV cocktails, there's something for everyone.
4200-B W. Braker Ln.
3. Yard Bar
With a seasonal rotating craft mocktail menu and a dog park, this North Austin spot is a hit.
6700 Burnet Rd.
4. Easy Tiger
Both locations of this bakery/beer garden offer two mocktails (with house-made syrup), a nonalcoholic craft beer, and a full espresso bar.
6406 N. I-35 Frontage Rd., #1100
A mint spritz or orange crush both pair perfectly with some of the best biscuits around.

7. Holy Roller
This punk diner doesn't need alcohol to keep it lively with spirit-free drinks like the Coachelle (blueberry, Orgeat almond, lemon, and Rambler sparkling water).
509 Rio Grande
Try a rotating agua fresca (like hibiscus, lime, and agave) with their upscale modern Mexican fare.

1209 E. 11th
10. Roosevelt Room
Renowned for an expansive drink menu, it's no wonder they crafted a martini. The N'artini uses Seedlip Spice nonalcoholic spirit with Juniper tea, clarified Asian pear juice, and other luxe herbs, oils, and Castelvetrano olives.
307-B W. Fifth
Two mocktails make the cut: the Hibiscus spritzer and the Orgeat citrus soda both pair perfectly with this killer brunch menu.

This tiny unassuming space is a wonderland of booze-free options.
