Just in time for dry January, Sacramento’s first 100% chill bar opens in the heart of the city.

Teatotalist will pop up at 830 K St. in downtown Sacramento for the next few months, owners Amanda Brincat and Kathryn Altman announced on social media Thursday night.

Plans to open Friday have been scrapped, but the bar is expected to welcome its first customers at 2 p.m. Saturday.

“Space is still in progress, but come back this weekend,” the post read.

A teetotaler’s temporary setup may quickly transform into a permanent home. Sober Bar is one of six finalists and winner of the Downtown Sacramento Partnership’s Calling All Dreamers competition will be given $10,000 and additional support to launch a downtown business.

Over the past five years, alcohol-free bars have become more common in US cities. This is thanks to more drink options and an increasing number of sober and drink-minded customers. In Sacramento, traditional restaurants and bars like Bottle & Barlow, Iron Horse Tavern, and Beast + Bounty step up their mocktail game.

At The Teetotalist, beer fans can grab a Virgin West Coast IPA from Sausalito-based Best Day Brewing or a lager from Sacramento’s Oak Park Brewing for $6. Non-alcoholic wines from Jøyus and Prima Pavé are also available for $7 per glass.

Mocktails are where this humble bar shines, with non-alcoholic spirits from brands like Ritual, Lyre’s and Three Spirits. Try the Clover Club, which includes alcohol-free gin, raspberry syrup, aquafaba, citrus, or hangover-free ginger Old Fashioned.

Teato Tallist is open from 4-10pm on Fridays, 2-10pm on Saturdays and 2-8pm on Sundays. All drinks are below 0.5% alcohol.
