As consumer behavior around alcohol consumption continues to change, there is a growing need for nightlife experiences that can accommodate non-drinkers, which NYC bar Getaway hopes to meet

An alcohol-free bar sounds like an oxymoron, but that's precisely what Getaway, a new spot in Brooklyn, New York serving sophisticated mixes—without a trace of booze—is offering its clientele. Initially it could seem like a risky bet, but with only room to seat approximately 25, Getaway is filling a need rarely accommodated in New York City.

Although every bar has soft drinks available and other non-alcoholic options, for those who don't drink, it still might not be an ideal spot to hang out. $13 for a mocktail could seem like a steep price to pay, but the experience aims to be well worth it: The space boasts a swanky atmosphere and top notch service in addition to a community of non-drinkers.

The quality of the drinks is designed to give the establishment more competitive edge, featuring a carefully crafted menu including unusual concoctions like ‘Daters Gonna Date,' which contains medjool dates, peanut butter, lime and banana syrup, macadamia-nut milk and Coco Rico soda. Finally, Getaway also serves coffee, tea and an array of elusive bottles and cans like Yerba Mate Soda and Sanbitter for a complete non-alcoholic bar experience.
