Las Vegas may be notorious for its buzzing bar scene, but sometimes mixing it up with a mocktail makes for the best memories without the hangover. Check out these spots for fun mocktails in Nevada.

Taverna Costera

Las Vegas

Taverna Costera appears to be a coffee shop and fast-casual café at first glance. But once inside, you’ll experience the open-air rooftop bar, full-service dining restaurant and, of course, the colorful bar serving up stunning, spirit-free cocktails. By drawing inspiration from coastal Mediterranean fusion, everything about Taverna Costera is unique, fresh and good for you. From the bar, guests can taste the lovely lavender fields of Provence, France, by ordering the Provincial Lemonade, made with fresh lemon juice and lavender-infused simple syrup. On the other hand, guests can also sip on a Strawberry Smash, a sweet and refreshing blend of strawberries, basil, simple syrup and black tea. If you’re looking for an even more elevated experience, definitely stay for dinner to indulge in soups, salads and seafood galore to accompany your sips.
