Where to get the best mocktails in Singapore
1. Neon Pigeon
With influences of Tokyo peppered around the eclectic space, this modern izakaya has one of the most inclusive cocktail menus we’ve seen. The mocktails aren’t an afterthought either. Beverage director Mario la Pietra insists that every guest should be able to find something exciting to drink. Thanks to the team’s efforts, you’ll find Neon Pigeon’s menu thoughtfully split into full, half, and zero-proof cocktails.

This seafood bistro has our hearts with its fresh and indulgent plates. Flavours are inspired by Latin America and Italy, with dashes of Peruvian, Japanese, Mexican, and even Chinese cuisines thrown into the mix. What’s a decadent dinner without a drink or two? If you’re not feeling up for wine, there’s a neat selection of mocktails available. Choose between the virgin mojito or virgin Pimm’s on the menu, but our pick is Island in the Sun. This fruity drink is the perfect way to end your meal.
Marcy’s, 39-40 Duxton Road, Singapore 089503
3. Wanderlost Lounge
Step into this space created by The Halal Mixologist for an exciting night sans booze. Drinks are inspired by books such as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, as well as The Little Prince. The stories are retold in unique non-alcoholic beverages meticulously crafted with classic mixology techniques. Pick from mocktails with flavour profiles that range from tart and fruity to chocolatey and buttery.

Be transported into the world of 80s dive bars when you step into Parliament. There’s no fuss here. You’re welcome to let your hair down, loosen up, and shimmy the night away. The carefully curated selection of music will leave you vibing through the night. If you’re looking to spend the night booze-free, mocktails are available on the menu with classics like Shirley Temple and a virgin mojito. Or go with Where Did That ManGo just to appreciate how funny the name is.
Parliament, #02-01, 18 Teck Lim Road, Singapore 088390
5. Caffe Fernet
Enjoy a cool breeze and sunshine when you dine alfresco at Caffe Fernet. You’ll tuck into traditional Italian fare with a menu full of appetisers, mains, and desserts to savour. The line-up is subject to change daily, but you can’t go wrong with plates of pasta and chicken Milanese to share. We love starting the meal off with a spritz to whet our appetites, but the non-alcoholic drinks are just as delicious.
Caffe Fernet, #01-05, Customs House, 70 Collyer Quay, Singapore 049323
6. The Great Mischief
The Great Mischief has made a home for itself within the walls of the iconic National Gallery. This halal cafe serves delish mocktails in Singapore made with fresh, fruity ingredients, as well as Non No. 5 wine – a non-alcoholic wine alternative. Order the peach sangria for a refreshing drink: it’s a delightful concoction made with peach fruit mix, Non No. 5, and a dash of caramel and ginger.
The Great Mischief, #01-17, National Gallery Singapore, 1 St Andrew’s Road, Singapore 178957
This restaurant at the Asian Civilisations Museum is another favourite of ours. The bar menu is deceptively devoid of any mocktails. Don’t let that fool you though! We’ve discovered that the bartender will happily mix up a non-boozy drink of your choice – and a tasty one at that. We recommend the virgin pina colada. Stripped of alcohol, the delightfully tropical taste of pineapple and coconut really shines through.
Empress, #01-03, Asian Civilisations Museum, 1 Empress Place, Singapore 179555
8. Sol & Luna
Checked out this Latin-European spot at CapitaSpring yet? We’re obsessed with its baked camembert. If you’re in the area for tea, take a stop at Sol & Luna for a slice of cake and some zero-proof mocktails. Our favourite is the Dous Et Frais, a revitalising mix of fresh passion fruit, honeycomb syrup, cinnamon and purple cabbage soda.
Sol & Luna, #17-01, CapitaSpring, 88 Market Street, Singapore 048948
9. Gibson Bar
We can’t resist an evening of shaken tipples and fresh oysters at Gibson Bar. This sexy joint at Bukit Pasoh is perfect for a night out with the girls or a chill gathering with friends. It’s effortlessly classy with charming bartenders who craft a drink with finesse every time. If you’re not in the mood for something boozy, you can always get the mocktail variation of it on the menu.
