Leeds’ first completely non-alcoholic pub is opening in Otley

The heart of Leeds’ most legendary pub crawl is soon tipped to be home to the city’s first alcohol-free bar.

A new pub dedicated to non-alcoholic booze is set to open in Leeds this summer, bringing a huge variety of different low-ABV drinks with it.

Called Functional Drinks Club, the new watering hole and drinks shop in Otley will serve non-alcoholic craft beers, lagers, ales, ciders, and sparkling wine when it opens next month.

It will also pour Kombucha (a fermented low-ABV tea drink) and nootropic serotonin-boosting mood drinks made using natural ingredients such as caffeine, green tea extract, and guarana.

Founded by Kevin Gillespie, the new opening in Otley plans to run Leeds’ first zero-waste kombucha service – offering a takeaway service where kombucha lovers can bring their own containers, fill up and take home as much of the good stuff as they like.

It will sell all of its drinks to take away, as well as provide a welcoming space for people to sit and drink inside.

Working alongside some of the UK’s top kombucha brewers, the new non-alcoholic bar and shop will be rotating kegs of the fermented drink much like regular boozers do their craft beers.

Elsewhere, drinkers can enjoy a wide variety of non-alcoholic and nootropic craft beers, lagers and ales, as well as non-alcoholic wines, ciders and CBD drinks.
