Sober-Friendly Guide to Soho

Come for the aesthetics and stay for the food and drinks. NOMO Kitchen, located in the NoMo Soho Hotel, is a gorgeous space inside an airy, dramatic greenhouse atrium. It serves a seasonal American menu with global influences and diners say the brunch is a must! In warm weather, there’s an outdoor terrace, perfect for whiling away the afternoon with friends.

What to Expect: They have three mocktails on the menu. Reservations are recommended, especially for brunch.

If you love ramen, don’t miss this Soho spot. At Zutto Ramen Sushi Bar you can order from the menu or create your own ramen bowl, down to the style of noodles and the individual toppings. If sushi is more your thing, you can even DIY your own hand roll with a platter of ingredients. Or, let the sushi experts handle the construction and order a roll or some sashimi. (There’s a second location in Tribeca 77 Hudson St.)

What to Expect: They have four mocktails on the menu

Part food court, part local shopping and culture experience, the Canal Street Market is a curated retail market, food hall & community space that’s open year-round. Graze the food vendors that range from Filipino street food to sushi hand rolls and Hainanese chicken. There’s also a luxe chocolatier to satisfy your sweet tooth. After you’ve had your fill of yumminess, check out the retail section full of crafts finds.

What to Expect: The market has events that you can find on their website, along with a list of food and retail vendors.

Step out of Soho and into Spain for a delicious Tapas experience. Boqueria is an energetic yet cozy Barcelona-style tapas bar that has all the Spanish favorites. The sport also serves up seasonal specials in a contemporary interior in the heart of Soho. It’s a friendly spot that’s great for groups – from a night with your pals to a team gathering -- or for cozy date with shared plates. Boqueria has locations in the Flatiron, West Side and Upper East Side.

What to Expect: They have two zero-proof cocktails on the menu

Champers Social Club is an all-day cafe and boutique bar. Great bites, a jamming soundtrack, and a gorgeous, rustic-glam space, it’s the perfect space to gather. Long tables are great for groups, or you can pair up at the little bar. There’s also an outdoor area and event space downstairs. Champers is also connected with Feste, a retail space that has unique items you need to host your own celebrations.

What to expect: They have Lyres Classico and Ghia.
