  • I remember seeing tidbits about the non-alcohol bars in NYC and one here in Chicago pop up before the pandemic. It was definitely spun as a hipster thing for those venues (probably LGBTQ friendly, but not totally geared to them). If the owners can make a go of the place, good on them!

    I also wonder how much being booze free saves on the back end of the books... I'm sure liquor licenses and insurance are a good chunk of change...

      Not much. If the cost of a license breaks your bank, you were never going to survive. (Except for PA, which is the dumbest possible law)

      Insurance, OTOH, I have no idea.

        My BIL’s bar in Maplewood was charged almost $29k to renew his liquor license this year. I can’t imagine why the fee is for the big cities.

          That doesn't make sense. St Paul is around 5k for a 180+ seat restaurant

            I might be confusing the liquor license fee with another. He’s been having issues with the city regarding a host of things surrounding his ability to add outdoor seating in response to COVID. That might’ve been the $29k.

                      Not exactly sure of that. Currently in retail and I still count 60-70 customers walking out with 30s of Busch Light; these people are in their mid 40s or later.

                        Most younger drinkers get exposed to the variety of options that are available however. Those of us currently in our late 30s are really the 1st "drinking generation" to be exposed to the idea of craft/local brewing. Anyone in their 40s or older knew basically Bud/Coors/Miller and that is it. It's a game changer when you are looking to establish a life long brand relationship.

                        Also you have to think of economics as well. People buying a 30-pack at Meijer probably have things to say about single cans of beer in the $2-5 range.

                            • For the gin drinkers out there, highly, highly recommend Lussa. A little harder to find than Vikre (also excellent, try the cedar) but in that same tier. Really good neat.
