Bar / Lounge / Bottle Service
We are Colorado's only sober bar serving the largest selection of nonalcoholic beer, wine, aperitifs and mocktails in the U.S. Our bistro menu includes high quality, often locally sourced options including warm nut and olive plates, veggie platters, charcuterie and build-your-own artisan grilled cheese. Most nights we feature live music, laid-back dj'ing or other programming to make your sober night out a joy.

A radically inclusive, locally and family-owned business, we are dedicated to creating space for peace and justice-making in our Denver community, including donating 20% of profits to local charities supporting people facing mental health and addiction challenges. Ultimately, we aim to change the way we relate to one another by offering a safe space for genuine, connected socializing.

Stop by and join a sober conscious community where you can speak with integrity, listen with attention, and relax without regret.

    This place is a great spot to meet for drinks or coffee. I don’t know why it isn’t busier on the weekends, but no complaints from me about a quiet atmosphere!

    Everyone was really nice and the atmosphere is great. I really love the concept because alcoholic makes me sick, but I have had far better non alcoholic cocktails other places. Maybe we were just there on an off night.

    Awake was everything we hoped for and more! The ambience was beautiful, the mocktails were delicious and the service was warm and welcoming. So grateful that a place like Awake exists! It was an incredible experience that I highly recommend to non-drinkers and drinkers alike! A must-see in Denver!

    Big selection of interesting non-alcoholic drinks to try. The servers/bartenders are really nice. Relaxed atmosphere. Admittedly pretty pricey, but I've certainly dropped more money on alcohol before.

    Today I celebrated 500 days of sobriety and it’s been my wish to go to Awake since I learned about it on one of my sober sites on Facebook! It did not disappoint!

    The food was good, albeit overpriced, and the drinks were yummy. The problem was service. It took us 3 hours to have a sandwich and 2 drinks - we would have ordered at least two more if we had been able to find ANYONE to take our order. No one ever came back to check on our food after dropping it off. We noticed several other tables struggling with this as well. A bit disappointed I didn't get to try all the drinks I wanted, or a dessert.

    At Awake the atmosphere was good, very mellow, and relaxing with friendly and helpful servers. The drinks were creative and tasty, although we did find a few of the mixed drinks to be watery with too much ice to mixer ratio. This was disappointing because the cost of the drinks is still pretty high. The crudite plate was tasty but slightly overpriced for the volume of food. The artisanal grilled cheese and breakfast burritos we ordered were very dry and bland. Need to up the game on the food at Awake, but the atmosphere and the idea are on the mark.

    There was no point in reserving a table because when we got there it was open seating.

    Awake was awesome!! Wonderful ambiance and delicious mocktails. The kombucha on tap was insanely good. Our server (she had pink and blonde hair but I forget her name) was really sweet and gave some great recommendations. Will definitely be back

    Wonderful to have a place to enjoy friends and gatherings with a cool vibe, great staff, and is also alcohol free. But the atmosphere makes you feel like you're in a popular bar/restaurant with a full "bar" menu with great drink options. All the fun "cocktails" you'd have any other bar, sans the alcohol. Hopefully, they will expand the food menu a bit more in the future.

    AwakeResponded on February 22, 2022Hi Sarah! We appreciate your reception of our space, our staff, our drinks, and our "fun"! Your reflection is fantastic! We're always refining and improving and we welcome your honesty; in the future, how can we better meet your dining needs with food menu options?
