First non-alcoholic bar launches in Accra

Non-alcoholic bars are growing in popularity around the world as more people opt for health-and-wellness-driven lifestyles

The first non-alcoholic bar has opened in Accra to mark World No Alcohol Day, held over the weekend.

Non-alcoholic bars are growing in popularity around the world as more people opt for a health-and- wellness-driven lifestyle.

Designed to accommodate the growing numbers of people exploring sobriety, non-alcoholic bars pour adult drinks such as craft cocktails – without the booze.

Eden Bar was unveiled at a first pop-up event on Sunday (2 October 2022) in East Legon. It aims to be a much-needed alternative to the current nightlife culture in Accra and offers clients a good time minus the alcohol.

John Asogonnde, the bar’s founder, said he believes there is a huge market for this type of establishment, and that there are plenty of people who want to just get out of the house to enjoy a cool drink or a nice meal without the social pressures or expectations that come with alcohol.

The bar’s name was inspired by the Garden of Eden, from the biblical earthly paradise.

Asogonnde said he had the idea for the bar out of his “own need for a place such as this”.

“As someone who was previously active on Accra’s vibrant nightlife scene, I found there weren’t any cool places for me to hang out after I quit drinking and smoking in 2018; so, I decided that if it’s not out there, I’d create one myself.”

There is a wide range of non-alcoholic beverages on the menu at Eden Bar, including beers, wines, spirits and craft cocktails that emulate the taste and sophistication of their alcoholic counterparts.
