It’s the month of mocktails. To start off the new year, many take part in what’s known as Dry January — a challenge that encourages people to refocus, cleanse their systems, and abstain from alcohol consumption for one month.

To make the challenge a little bit easier for you, we’ve rounded up 12 places you can find mocktails and zero proof drinks around Indy.

Sundry and Vice, 850 Mass Ave.

Stop into the Bottleworks Hotel’s bar and ask for a mocktail. There’s a menu of three different mocktails for you to choose from or you can ask the bartender can mix up a drink similar to another cocktail, made with a zero proof spirit to give it the same vibe.

Big Woods Restaurants, Multiple locations

City Editor Nicole visited the Speedway location and tried the Strawberry Tart Daiquiri — made with strawberry purée, orange juice, lime juice, and lemonade. Menus may not be the same at every Big Woods/Hard Truth location.

Blue Sushi Sake Grill, 2721 E. 86th St., Ste. 100

It has three zero proof drinks on the menu — all for $6 each, which is the cheapest we’ve seen.

The Cannon Ball Lounge, 141 Washington St.

Found on the 6th floor of Hotel Indy, you can sit back and enjoy a rooftop view alcohol-free with its zero proof menu including three signature mocktails — I Miss My Spritz, In Fashioned, and Good Graces.

The Fountain Room, 830 Mass Ave., Ste. 1480

This Bottleworks restaurant with supper club flair offers a selection of cocktails with no ABV and full flavor. Try the Crouching Tiger, the Tall, Dark & Refreshing, or the St. Agrestis “Negroni.”

16-Bit Bar + Arcade, 110 E. New York St.

Dominate some arcade games with a clear head. 16-Bit offers four different mocktails — Pinky and the Brain, Lisa Simpson, The Little Mermaid, and Optimus Prime — all for $6.

BODHI, 922 Mass Ave.

Try the non-alcoholic cocktail menu or check out the non-alcoholic section of the drink menu for a Yuzu Herb Tonic or Thai Iced Tea. City Editor Nicole recently tried the Afterlife Surprise and highly recommends.

The Inferno Room, 902 Virginia Ave.

This Fountain Square tiki bar offers three mocktail options — the Coocoonut Grove, Amaru Antivenom, and Island Time. All for $9.

The Ball & Biscuit, 331 Mass Ave.

BnB has your back during Dry January with an alcohol-free menu including seven different NA cocktails. You can even add a little something to your drink with CBD or Delta-8 for $2-3 more.

HC Tavern + Kitchen, 9709 E. 116th St.

The INDYtoday team went here for a pre-holiday break outing and we each ordered one of the zero proof cocktails. The menu includes Tavern Punch, Pineapple Nojito, and Blue Basil Spritz — $10 each.

Memento Zero Proof Lounge, 8701 E. 116th St., Ste. 145

The first zero proof bar in central Indiana is open in Fishers. It won’t be hard to go alcohol free here — everything on the menu is alcohol free.

Sun King Brewery, Multiple locations

You can still visit one of Indy’s favorite breweries during Dry January. Sun King has a non-alcoholic IPA and Cream Ale — or try its NA seltzers.
