The bars with no alcohol

A new dry bar/recovery cafe joins the roster of pubs with no alcohol!

From The Guardian recently:

Paper & Cup is our social enterprise cafe, and we’ve just opened it in the evenings as a recovery cafe – a dry pub where people can meet and socialise. There’s a certain irony to setting up a recovery cafe in the heart of Shoreditch, an area better known for its pubs, clubs and bars. Through Paper & Cup, we’re not only helping to train people in recovery back into work, but as our front door to the world, it’s also helping to de-stigmatise addiction in our local community.

That takes the total of dry bars in the UK to 5!

The Brink in Liverpool

Redemption in Notting Hill, West London

Sobar in Nottingham

The Umbrella Bar in Manchester

and now Paper and Cup in Shoreditch, East London 🙂
