Mocktails The Signature Call Of This Bay Area Nightspot
Now there is a place that takes it a step further, and that is an entire alcohol-free bar. It’s Bizzy’s Dry Bar in Oakland, a kind of nightlife hangout without the buzz of regular pubs and clubs.
Note the name is Bizzy’s, not Dizzy’s.
“Bizzy’s offers a non-alcohol environment to a growing community of people looking for a much-needed alternative to the traditional bar scene,” it states on its website.
This may nor may not be your scene but at the very least you don’t have to worry about finding a designated driver or paying for an Uber/Lift ride to and from this bar.
Here is its menu:
Refreshing with subtle fire, Anaheim pepper muddled with fresh lime, mint, and sugar, and a spark of Thai green chili cocktail spice.
Housemade, hand-squeezed lemonade with a hint of lavender
Seedlip Grove, blackberry shrub and bubbles
The Daily Cloud
Orgeat blended with seasonal fruit

*Drinks made with cocktail spice or Angostura bitters contain trace amounts of alcohol. Alcohol-free bitters are available. Ariel de-alcoholized wines contain less than half of one percent alcohol (<0.5%).
Bizzy’s is located at 2930 Telegraph Ave., in an area known as “Pill Hill” a couple blocks north of Koreatown. With hours of 6:30-midnight on weekends (Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays) and until 11 on Sundays and Mondays (it’s closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays) it’s not open quite as late a regular bar or nightclub but certainly long enough to test your social skills without the aid of alcohol.
