Located on the rooftop of The Aster, Lemon Grove is an innovative restaurant that serves up quality cuisine alongside breathtaking views of Hollywood. In addition to zero-proof wines, there are also a few mocktails on the menu, each of which caters to a specific flavor profile. The Some Like It Hot mocktail is similar to a spicy margarita, while the Old Hollywood uses spiritless bourbon and aromatic spices to create a timeless sipper.

Enjoy eye-catching beverages, epic city views and a modern fusion of Mediterranean and Mexican cuisine at West Hollywood’s Casa Madera. Since so much thought and creativity goes into each cocktail, it only makes sense that the mocktails are equally as complex.

The bright and vibrant California-fresh menu uses seasonal ingredients to wow guests with every bite, but the beverage program is just as impressive. Craving a martini without the hangover? Asterid’s Martini #0 is made with 0 percent Botanical Gin, Lyre’s Dry Vermouth, zesty orange bitters and brine. Prefer bubbles? The Spritz with sparkling hops is the ideal alcohol-free alternative.

Kick back with a mocktail in hand in the sleek and plant-filled dining room at Ardor. Situated inside the design-forward West Hollywood Edition, Ardor focuses on veggie-forward dishes that pair wonderfully with craft cocktails and refreshing wines. However, during Dry January, guests can take their taste buds on a tantalizing journey with a few fruity mocktails. Yellow uses Lyre’s White Cane, passion fruit and mint to transport you to a tropical destination, while Peach and Rose use more unique ingredients like Moscatel vinegar and raspberry cordial.

Providence

5955 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90038

Celebrating something special in January? Though a Michelin-starred meal typically calls for an elevated wine pairing, legendary seafood restaurant, Providence, is offering a non-alcoholic pairing menu to match their one-of-a-kind tasting menu. Enjoy unique concoctions ranging from a “fines herbes” soda to clarified coconut milk punch with passion fruit, vanilla and mace alongside fresh bites like caviar-topped potato and house-made Hawaiian dark chocolate.

Uchi

9001 Santa Monica Blvd Ste 101, West Hollywood, CA 90069

Uchi is one of the newest sushi spots to hit Los Angeles. Rather than pairing your sashimi and nigiri with sake, consider ordering one of Uchi’s zero-proof cocktails. Made with hibiscus-lime agave and lime, the Akabanaa is just as beautiful as it is delicious. For a more herbal experience, order the alcohol-free Mitsu Mitsu made with zero-proof gin, rosemary and yuzu honey.

9882 S Santa Monica Blvd, Beverly Hills, CA 90212

Between its elegant, European brasserie-inspired ambiance and its elevated menu that includes saffron risotto and whole Dover sole, Belvedere at The Peninsula Beverly Hills is a place to see and be seen. Rather than having a specific list of zero-proof options, Belvedere takes things up a notch by allowing guests to make any signature beverage alcohol-free. Simply take your pick and ask your mixologist to make your cocktail a mocktail. 

Fairmont.

Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows

101 Wilshire Blvd, Santa Monica, CA 90401

Those craving caffeine will love the Xpress Train, which is an alcohol-free take on the espresso martini. The Spice and Everything Nice is a fun play on a spicy margarita, while the Afternoon Refresher tastes like a crisp mojito on a warm summer’s day.
