Sainsbury’s is opening the first non-alcoholic and low-alcohol pub in the UK

Sainsbury’s has announced it is opening the UK’s first-ever no and low alcohol pub. The Clean Vic will open its doors on New Oxford Street from 24th to 25th July, serving a wide range of beers, wines and mocktails.

But don’t expect to get tipsy as while the pop-up looks exactly like a traditional pub, complete with bartenders and pints, everything on offer will in fact be entirely non-alcoholic or have an ABV of just 0.5%.

Thirsty punters will even have the chance to try the UK’s first non-alcoholic dark distillate, Celtic Soul, which offers a refined and sophisticated drinks experience that takes the appeal of whisky. The new tipple will be on offer alongside over 20 types of drinks available at Sainsbury’s, including a range of beers such as Lucky Saint, mocktails such as an Everleaf – a non-alcoholic aperitif – spritz, and a collection of wines.

Entry to the pub will cost just £5, which also entitles attendees to two drinks of their choice and two bar snacks throughout their visit.

What’s more, The Clean Vic No & Low Alcohol pub will also be offering immersive masterclasses for punters looking for some inspiration on how to cut down on their alcohol intake. Join Millie Gooch, founder of Sober Girl Society, for a No & Low alcohol cocktail making masterclass, or try a range of No & Low ABV beers and lagers with a beer tasting session. Each workshop costs just £12 to book, and will also gain you entry to the pub itself afterwards – for another tipple or two!
