The current wave of zero-proof drinks is so good that they even appeal to those who typically prefer the full-spirit variety. For those taking a pause from drinking or simply wanting to wake up without a hangover, here are 12 places to find delightful mocktails in Los Angeles.

Austin Hennelly brought his fascination with non-alcoholic cocktails to Kato in 2022 and introduced a pairing to accompany chef Jon Yao’s tasting menu. He also introduced five N/A a la carte options including a Garden Tonic made with bitter melon, cucumber, and a long list of ingredients that tastes just like a gin and tonic.

Shirley's Temple

Copy Link

Long Beach’s Shirley Temple operates as a daytime cafe until the sun goes down, then converts into a speakeasy with Art Deco decor, food, mocktails, and occasional entertainment. The most expensive drink is $12, and the menu’s inventiveness is extensive including the Saffroni: a twist on the Negroni that goes heavy on dark cherry-saffron bitters, Aperol-like flavors, and garnished with orange peel and fresh saffron.

Bar Louie

Bar Louie’s three SoCal locations serve the Pomegranate Paloma or the Pineapple Upside Down Margarita. The latter is blended with Ritual Zero Proof Tequila, pineapple juice, grenadine, vanilla, lime, and a splash of Sprite.
