Vancouver’s First Alcohol-Free Liquor Store ‘Mocktails’ To Open In Commercial Drive

Vancouver is about to welcome a newcomer: Mocktails, the city’s first alcohol-free liquor store set to open its doors on Commercial Drive.

This new shop signals a growing trend that’s sweeping across Canada—a shift towards non-alcoholic beers, spirit-free cocktails, and the rise of alcohol-free wine.

A Sober Revolution

The move towards non-alcoholic beverages isn’t just a fad; it’s a burgeoning movement that’s gaining momentum worldwide.

Canada is catching up with BC’s first booze-free bottle shop and beverage room, Bevees, opening just last November in Port Coquitlam.

Now, Vancouver is set to join the trend with Mocktails, a store where owner Angela’s journey with alcohol and the impact of generational alcoholism within her family underscores the mission of the store.

Located near Magari by Oca on Commercial Drive, this upcoming store is a space designed for the exploration and experience of non-alcoholic wines, spirits, beers, premixed drinks, bitters, aperitifs, syrups, and mixers.

You’ll also find a curated selection of unique vintage barware.

This endeavor aims to welcome everyone, whether you’re sober curious or firmly on the sober path, offering a beautiful, comfortable environment for all.

It’s a timely addition to Vancouver, catering to a growing demand for healthier lifestyle choices and social experiences minus the alcohol.

More diners are seeking alternatives to alcohol, looking to enjoy meals and gatherings without the side effects of drinking.

According to Statista, the Non-Alcoholic Beer market in Canada is projected to generate revenue of US$171.1 million in 2024.

Mocktails is more than just a store; it’s a statement.

It reflects a growing consciousness around health and wellness, offering Vancouverites a new way to enjoy social activities without compromising their well-being.

There’s no official date yet for the opening of Mocktails, but we’ll keep you up to date when we know!
