The Virgin Mary: Europe's first dedicated alcohol free cocktail bar
Heard the one about the Irish pub with no booze? Yes, really.
The Virgin Mary bar will open its doors on Capel Street in Dublin 1 next month, serving an extensive range of cocktails, wines, beers and mixed drinks, all with one thing in common – zero per cent alcohol.
It is the latest project from drinks industry experts Oisín Davis and Vaughan Yates, who also collaborated on the creation of the Poacher’s range of Irish-made mixers. According to Davis, the idea for the bar came from a trend they identified in the growing popularity of non-alcoholic cocktails and craft beers, and a desire to offer non-drinkers a space in which to socialise without being exposed to alcohol.
