That’s right — Denver has officially joined the NA revolution with Awake. It’s Colorado’s first completely alcohol-free bar that seeks to “change the way we relate to each other.” 

Open every day from 6:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., their sober bar, nonalcoholic bottle shop, and craft coffee house is set to give an alcohol-free solution for those looking to avoid a buzz.
