Yep, you read that right – and Colorado's first 'sober bar' is exactly what you'd expect.

Found in Denver, Colorado, there's no booze at Awake. Instead, visitors will find a stylish bar filled with non-alcoholic drinks, a non-alcoholic bottle shop, and a craft coffee house. According to the sober bar, Awake is there to help support people living an alcohol-free life or those that are sober curious.

The bar portion of the establishment is home to one of America's most comprehensive selections of non-alcoholic beer, wine, and spirits. The bar also has a 'mocktail' menu for those wanting to drink something with a twist. Visitors can also expect snacks, music, and other special events.

The on-site non-alcoholic bottle shop offers a comprehensive selection of drinks, which can be purchased for at-home consumption. Find more than 60 great options.

Looking for some caffeine? The craft coffee shop at Awake has a menu of "consciously crafted" coffee drinks that can be accompanied by breakfast burritos and fresh-baked treats.

So there you have it – Colorado's first 'sober bar' – a spot designed to bring the aspects of the typical bar scene that people crave minus the hangover.

Find Awake Denver at 2240 N. Clay Street, Unit 100 in Denver, Colorado.

Been wanting places like this ALL my life.... and now that I'm married and OLD... NOW they open one. (Smile) Congrats... glad for all the sober folks though that will enjoy it. There's needs to be one in every city everywhere! I've been sober now since 1987.
