It’s no secret Portlanders love to imbibe; after all, Portland is ranked fifth among cities with the most bars per capita. However, for the city’s temporarily or indefinitely sober residents, options at those bars are often limited to seltzer with bitters or something out of a soda gun. Plus, once the pandemic started, many restaurants and bars known for their non-alcoholic drinks cut the mocktails from the menu, responding to supply chain issues and financial losses. The good news: A few restaurants and bars have kept a roster of zero-proof drinks on their menus, including house sodas, kombuchas, sours, and more.

Whether you’re the designated driver of the night or have more personal reasons for abstaining, those seeking non-alcoholic cocktails can take solace in the fact Portland has plenty of options available. Note that Eater maps are not ranked; they’re organized geographically.

Note: Health experts consider dining out to be a high-risk activity for the unvaccinated; it may pose a risk for the vaccinated, especially in areas with substantial COVID transmission.

Bye and Bye

Copy Link

One of Alberta’s greatest gems, The Bye and Bye is a vegan restaurant and bar with a menu so well-made it may fool the average meat lover. A generous mocktail menu offers patrons their choice of non-alcoholic cocktails as well as cider, CBD soda, and more. The Rose Palmer’s ice tea is complemented by lemon and rosemary simple syrup, while the Floor Punch is something like a sparkling cranberry lemonade. Paloma-lovers should opt for The Little Bird, which combines lime, grapefruit, Fresca, and a Tajin-salted rim. 

Maya Lovelace’s ode to Southern spirituality, Yonder, is alive and well in Portland, boasting a menu full of classics like fried chicken, hushpuppies, and house-made pickles with an Appalachian twist. While the menu includes a number cocktails, wines, and beers, its list of non-alcoholic options are extensive, including sassafrass sweet tea, sumac lemonade, non-alcoholic wines and beers, and bottled mocktails: Eva’s Spritz, a sparkling cocktail with notes of rhubarb and bitter orange, or the Acid League “Sauvage” Proxy, with crisp apple, spruce tips, sauvignon blanc grape, cedar, juniper, and white tea.

Known for its Thai curries and barbecue smoked meats, this vacation-themed restaurant’s bar program brings serious tropical vibes to the airy and colorful dining room. Bar manager and co-owner Eric Nelson, in collaboration with his bar team, designed several non-alcoholic cocktails on the menu, which he labels ‘clear headed.’ Currently, Eem blends citrus, almond, and berries in its Napping on an Island, while the Alternative Health is a Coca-Cola bolstered with cinnamon, maple, lemon, and shoyu.

This vegan South American “Pisco bar” inspired by the Andes is about so much more than brandy. Visitors can enjoy one of several different non-alcoholic cocktail options here all for under $10. Some options, like the gingery-lemon mocktail Fuzzy Bears in Rocking Chairs, play on more traditional fare, while others like the Calentito — a toddy with chamomile tea, coconut milk, and vegan turmeric honey — inspire curiosity.

Epif offers a number of non-alcoholic cocktails for $6 or less

Oven and Shaker

Helmed by six-time James Beard nominated chef Cathy Whims, Oven and Shaker serves wood-fired Neapolitan pizzas made using a 70-year-old sourdough starter. Years of trips to Italy yielded a menu dripping with Italian street food and zero proof libations, including a spicy pineapple pepper punch and a ginger ale made with in-house pressed juices and syrups.

The Sudra

With three different locations across Portland, The Sudra is known for its bright, colorful Indian menu. Its drinks menu is no different, offering visitors the chance to try distinct non-alcoholic beverages they may not be able to get their hands on elsewhere. The Masala Film pairs mango puree with lime and ginger juice, while the Bandit Queen mimics a mojito with cucumber, lemon, and mint. Other options include mango lassi made with coconut yogurt, as well as a tangy tamarind limeade.

Hey Love

Having opened its doors back in fall of 2018, Hey Love is a tropical-themed bar nested inside the Jupiter Next hotel. Plants hanging overhead, giant patterned rugs, and eclectic art prints lining the walls serve as the perfect backdrop for a drink (or two, or three). The I’m Very You tempers the fruity flavors of cherry, lime, and ginger with cardamom and almond, while the infamous Queen Of Shade apple colada is a well-balanced blend of five spice, stone fruit, coconut cream, and vanilla black tea. 

Abigail Hall

The cocktail bar in the Woodlark Hotel — with flowered wallpaper, a brick fireplace, and a killer cheeseburger — always keeps a handful of cool, intricate mocktails on the menu. Those looking for something bubbly can opt for a tonic with lime, cucumber, and cinnamon, or a citrusy soda with peach and maple. Alternatively, the Quiet Life blends apple cider with citrus, falernum, and orange blossom water.

Punch Bowl Social Portland

Filled with arcade games, several drinking areas and a bowling alley, Punch Bowl Social is a home away from home for wayward adults looking for a good time downtown. It also offers a number of non-alcoholic drink options for those who don’t want to be wrestling angry hangovers on Sunday morning. Current options include fizzes in flavors like strawberry-rhubarb or blueberry lemonade, a grapefruit-lime number with chile and honey, and a watermelon tea cocktail with lemon juice.

Cocktail lounge Barlow is designed to celebrate the glitz and glamour of old school Hollywood. The prohibitionist theme of the era is heightened even more by the non-alcoholic cocktails on the menu for a budget-friendly $5. The Cheeky Blush blends blood orange with lime and demerara, while the Sub Strawberry Equation is a pairing of strawberry shrub and lemon juice.

Holy Ghost

The team behind The Old Gold, Paydirt, and Tough Luck just debuted its latest and greatest: Holy Ghost, an agave-loving bar located in the space once known as the Pub at the End of the Universe. Despite its penchant for agave-based drinks and fizzes, Holy Ghost boasts a modest non-alcoholic cocktail menu with novel options such as the Plant Parent, a highball with Seedlip citrus and La Croix, or the funkier Flash Report, which combines Seedlip citrus with green tea syrup and lemon. 

Hemp Bar

East Fork Cultivars’ new Hemp Bar cafe opened its doors earlier this May. Part retail hemp store, part cafe, the cafe section has a menu with light snacks and non-alcoholic drinks available. Some of the city’s most diverse non-alcoholic options can be found here, too, each of which includes a healthy 10 or 20 mg of added CBD. A Caramel Apple Fizz pairs eccentric ingredients like vanilla caramel and kombucha, while the Cocomo is decidedly simple, a tropical blend of coconut, orange, pineapple, lime, and nutmeg.
