Restaurants and bars increasingly have alcohol-free cocktails and beers on their menu. The only disadvantage: the choice is very limited. Pop-up Bar 0.020 in Amsterdam is temporarily changing this during Dry January. The one-month booze-free challenge that helps lots of people reset their relationship with alcohol.
Bar 0.020: Without a drop of alcohol
Bar 0.020 – pronounced as zero point zero twenty – is definitely cloud nine for the ones who leave the drink for a month (or for an unlimited period). It’s the very first bar with only non-alcoholic drinks. So, expect a bar where you can walk in and out both completely sober. And yes, no hangover the next day. Let’s toast to that!
About the concept
Bar 0.020 has opened her doors Friday the 3rd of January and will be open till the 31st of this month (every Thursday till Sunday). A tasty idea which already is spotted in London and NYC. Founders Mariska Leising and Niels Krommenhoek guessed it was the right time to introduce this sparkling idea in the Netherlands, our credits to the way they were thinking. And so, it happened. Bar 0.020 is a spot with a warm pub feeling, but without the temptation of alcoholic refreshments. They offer a stage to various beer and cocktail brands and thus to show people that it can be so much fun without alcohol. Where many bars and restaurants have only three or four non-alcoholic alternatives, Bar 0.020 offers thirteen types of beer.
It doesn’t stop with beers, cocktails and other drinkable treats. Thursdays are all about love. Fridays are for after work drinks with DJ and cocktail shaker. On Saturdays they have delicious tastings. And on lazy Sundays? Bar 0.020 is a big game bar.
