Nashville’s having a spirit-free renaissance as of late. Forget the pedestrian sparkling water with a twist of lime or the snoozy Shirley Temple — nonalcoholic cocktails have stepped up their game all around the city. No matter what neighborhood you find yourself in, there’s bound to be a place offering complex and nuanced sans-spirit drinks that intrigue the palate without the pesky morning-after hangover. Below: a list of local restaurants and bars (including Nashville’s first booze-free bottle shop) offering interesting nonalcoholic drinks year-round.
M.L.Rose Craft Burger & Beer
Local burger chain M.L.Rose consistently offers a variety of NA beer options on its menu that change with the seasons. This winter, you’ll find both Athletic Lite and Free Wave Hazy IPA by Athletic Brewing Co., Mango Dragonfruit Sour by Untitled Art, and Original Sin White Widow by Original Sin Hard Cider out of Hudson Valley, New York.
