City of Shay's Top 10 Spots to Grab a Mocktail in Indianapolis


This elevated Thai spot is all about the bar experience as well, and luckily they keep it inclusive with mocktails like The Secret Garden using Seedlip, tasting fresh and complex, just like their food menu.

Public Parlor House

This coffee ‘til cocktails spot is bursting with creative energy and the lush vibes are perfect for a morning cup with a friend or a date night drink. Their bartenders are always coming up with new creations and can create a mocktail out of anything depending on your preferences.

The Brasserie

Dinner and a movie wouldn’t be complete without a tasty mocktail to sip before your flick. The Brasserie has an extensive “No ABV” menu utilizing a lot of zero proof spirits from brands like Spiritless and DHOS.

Plat 99

This swanky hotel bar located upstairs at The Alexander is a great spot for a date night, or join Silent Book Club when they pop up there and settle into a good story while sipping a Paloma with Spiritless tequila.

Bar One Fourteen

Still want the speakeasy vibe without the consequences? Once you find this spot, you can enjoy easy listening from their record player that’s always spinning great vinyls while sipping on a Camellia Sour - plus, 100% of this drink’s proceeds go to The Patachou Foundation.

8th Day Distillery

Enjoy a sunny day with the garage doors open while you people (and dog) watch in Windsor Park. 8th Day’s bartenders are so great at their craft and they can create almost any kind of mocktail, plus they’re usually a lot more affordable than the cocktails.

Hotel Tango

Hotel Tango has been a classic spot in the city for years when it comes to alcoholic beverages, but this distillery is making it’s way in the mocktail movement with a new section of their menu featuring non-alcoholic drinks.

Blue Sushi Sake Grill

Once you get past their amazing food menu, be sure to check out the mocktails at Blue Sushi Sake Grill, they’re super refreshing made with fresh fruits and juices and pair perfectly with their extensive vegan sushi menu. 

The Inferno Room

Be spirited away to tiki paradise, but minus the spirits - The Inferno Room is the spot for delicious tiki inspired mocktails that will have you wishing for a white sand beach and a towel to sit on as soon as possible.

Ball and Biscuit

Ball and Biscuit has always been known for having a creative, extensive, and ever-changing menu. Luckily they’ve added mocktails to the mix, many of them utilizing Lyre’s zero proof spirits.
