Introducing our top 10 spots to help you through “Dry January” with ease

January is a time when we hear a lot about fresh starts and new goals. Eating clean, cleaning out (thanks Marie Kando!), and participating in “Dry January” are common-place moves for the start of a new year. Participating in Dry January doesn’t mean that you have to miss out on Chicago food fun, though. Especially with Restaurant Week coming up, you shouldn’t have to miss out on dinners with friends or date nights just because you won’t be drinking. These are great spots for mocktails and other non-alcoholic drinks. Take a sip and enjoy your month!

Hub 51 {51 West Hubbard Street, Chicago; 312.828.0051}: Making plans for after-work happy hour but need something alcohol-free? This is the spot! They have mocktails like the Clean Green(cucumber, ginger, and LaCroix Curate), and the Refresh-Mint (raspberry and house-squeezed juices).

Beatrix {various locations}: Perfect for a January brunch or long weekend lunch, Beatrix has locations throughout the city offering fresh-squeezed juices all day including Cucumber & Mint Soda, Blueberry & Basil Smash, Blackberry Lychee Lemonade, and more.
