The best bars that will unlock Unlock NYC's Best Nightlife are given below:
Virgin Isles at Mother of Pearl:
Tiki bars are the bane for the existence of any non-drinker. The cocktails of this bar are always exquisitely made and beautiful. They are blending this with many types of alcohol that are ordered from virgin variety, which is literally impossible. The Singapore sling without the booze is just the pineapple juice having lime and grenadine tossed into it.
We are having the mother of pearl, which is surprisingly elegant from tiki bar, which is an entirely nonalcoholic menu of the cocktail. It is required to stay tropical with the orchard island which is featuring green apple juice, lemon, lemongrass and coconut puree. This is all warm up with eastern spice, which is blending cinnamon spice, guava, spicy black pepper syrup, lime, and seltzer.
Angela's homemade ginger beer:
The worst part about going out for dinner is the lack of excellent and sober drinking options. Everyone else would be getting the happy hour wine and craft beers while you would get sad ginger ale. If you are lucky enough then you would also get some bitters.
That is why I love Angela's the corner Caribbean place in Bed-Stuy. Not only the food is awesome and the friendly owner you will feel like the regular when you are going the first time. They also have the ridiculous good homemade ginger beer. It is very thick and sweet, and you can get the actual fresh ginger.
Nonalcoholic cocktails from Saxon and Parole:
You will love a romantic restaurant where they are making their whiskey and contain the fully-fledged nonalcoholic cocktail menu. With seasonal shrubs like tonic made with herbs and celery bitters, red bell pepper lemonade, iced tea spiced with star anise tincture and many more, you will not feel like you are missing something fancier.
Nonalcoholic cocktails are only eight dollars whereas the regular cocktails are 11 to 16 dollars. If your fancy drink is not listed on the menu, then the bar will charge for unique ingredients like Meyer lemon preserves, cranberry puree, coriander salt, and the spiced maple syrup. The bartender will surely make something, which is unusual.
If you are having barcard, then all of these above bars are also included in the card. You can even get some discount with the barcard.
If you are thinking of taking the break from the booze and being the responsible, sober adult for the night or just not drinking at all in NYC would be very difficult, it is not an annoying thing at all. Who will be able to resist the allure of locally brewed beers, nice ass wine bars, and cocktail mixology?
However, along with vast amounts of alcohol, there would be huge amounts of delicious non-alcoholic drinks too. Some people are mostly sober in this fine city, and the social life is not happening with old lime wedges. So, if you are struggling with the Dry January then see the below guide. These eight bars and restaurants are offering the best non-alcoholic drinks in NYC in those times when you are not drinking and can enjoy even when you are.
Sodas at Soda Fountain and Brooklyn Farmacy:
The 1920s apothecary was restored in the neighborhood soda fountain where they are serving everything, which is locally made. The ice cream was great but what wanted is the tall handmade soda. They are combining perfectly the fizzy seltzer from the actual soda fountain and not a soda gun. The soda syrups are boiled in the small batches with real fruit and spices from cola to lemon.
Seasonal varieties are very delightful, snag a red raspberry soda and strawberry in the summer and the grapefruit in the winter. My personal favourite is the Cherry Lime Rickey, which is combining the cherry syrups and the lime with all the natural maraschino cherry on top of it. Share this one with someone cute and then you will not miss the alcohol.
Mock tails at Fig. 19:
Fid. 19 is the speakeasy that feels like the speakeasy. Walk through the brightly lit, white-walled art gallery and open the door in the back to the dim bar having plenty of cozy seating and a surprising lack of pretentiousness.
Similar to other NYC speakeasies, Fig. 19's bartenders are very friendly, and at least when people are there, they take joy in making mocktails when it is requested. Unique ingredients are available like lemon agave, rose syrup, blackberry puree and herbs de Provence syrup. Who would not like it?
You would be able to unlock NYC's best nightlife when you are carrying the barcard. It is straightforward to use and acceptable almost all the places.
