Whether you’re sober-curious or embracing Dry January, these are the most tempting booze-free beverages to be found in Chelsea

The best non-alcoholic cocktails in Chelsea, London

Maybe you identify as sober-curious and are interested in giving up alcohol for the long term, or perhaps you’ve embraced Dry January and have been teetotal since you woke up on 1 January. Either way, the bars and restaurants have plenty of delicious alcohol-free options to ensure you can be sociable while entertaining your tastebuds and keeping you clear-headed.

In fact, No. Fifty Cheye has launched a brand-new selection of zero alcohol by volume (0% ABV) cocktails in partnership with its exclusive zero-ABV partner CleanCo, the drinks brand founded by Made In Chelsea star Spencer Matthews that specialises in full flavoured non-alcoholic alternatives to your favourite full-strength spirits.

Elsewhere, Holy Carrot, the innovative plant-based restaurant at Urban Retreat will open Holy Bar this month. It’s billed as ‘a world of mystery’ and will serve two delectable alcohol-free cocktails in the bar, which is set in a beautiful zen space, adorned with antique silver mirrors, crystal chandelier, and a cosy warm fireplace filled with candles.

From cocktails made with 0% proof spirits and wines, to tasty concoctions crafted from the freshest ingredients, here are the best alcohol-free cocktails to be imbibed in Chelsea…
