Soft Cocktails for my Pregnant Friend?

r
roze Jul 11, 2012 09:29 AM

I know the NoMad and Eleven Madison have a soft cocktail program but I'm looking for something place a little less fancy. My friend is coming who used to be the "Bar Hopper" of the bunch and she still wants to go out and fun. Obviously I would love it if I could take her somewhere she can have something delicious instead of just a soda. Any help would be great- Thanks!

    ABC Kitchen, maybe? Or Bar Room at the Modern. Both will have some sort of seasonal housemade sodas. ABC Kitchen also does their own juice blends.

      The Modern Dining Room has delicious housemade sodas - I imagine you'd be able to get them in the bar room as well.

        Yes, I have ordered them in the Bar Room.

      ABV, the wine bar from the guys who own Earl's Beer and Cheese on the UES, only serves soft cocktails (in addition to wine).

        Rouge Tomate has some nice selections.

          I have gotten drinks for two separate pregnant friends at Pegu Club. I think they do a nice job of it.

            Flatiron Lounge has a really nice booze-free cocktail menu.

              Riverpark has some wonderful non alcoholic drinks. Sit at the bar or outside if the weather is nice. Fabulous East river view.

                  I second the recco of Beloved1 (welcome to the board). I may not like the food service at Rouge Tomate but they have some awesome soft cocktails (and hard ones as well) and most ingredients seem to be done on the spot.
