The very best non-alcoholic alternatives to try at The Doyle Collection hotels during Dry January
Treat yourself to something delicious during Dry January
In 2020, avoiding alcohol doesn’t have to mean cancelling on social situations. Londoners are increasingly opting for low or no alcohol options, so keeping to your Dry January pledge should be easier than ever before.
The Doyle Collection’s London hotels offer a variety of non-alcoholic options for guests to enjoy, available all year round.
Cocktails at The Coral Room
The Coral Room’s fabulous new cocktail menu tells a story of sips around the country, from Wordsworth’s Lakes and Bronte’s moors to the Cornish Riviera, Glastonbury and the Bloomsbury Group’s Sussex retreat. The delicious non-alcoholic option is inspired by Lancashire, using local ingredients to bring the history of the destination to the drinker’s taste buds. Living In Coral combines Seedlip Spice 94, Pineapple & Earl Grey Tea Shrub, Coconut Water and LE Soda Water for a refreshing tipple in the beautiful surroundings of The Coral Room.
During Dry January, The Coral Room will also be serving four wellness cocktails in partnership with Meda Human, in order to restore the balance of both body and mind through the imitable benefits CBD has to offer.
Mindful Cocktails at 108 Bar
This January, 108 Bar will be serving a series of Mindful Cocktails in partnership with La Maison Wellness and Wild Life Botanicals. Embracing healthy hedonism, guests will be able to order low-sugar and low-abv cocktails which put a twist on recognised classics. The cult favourite Aperol Spritz is one of the cocktails that has been reworked for Dry January, named as the 0% Spritz on the menu and featuring Monin Orange Spritz, Wild Life Botanicals Nude and elderflower tonic, for a delicious and alcohol-free twist on the original.
Camille Vidal, founder of La Maison Wellness, will be working a guest-shift in the bar on the 21st January, so pop in to meet her and learn more about the benefits of mindful drinking.
Non-alcoholic shots at The Juicery
If your decision to take part in Dry January is part of a wider health choice, then don’t miss a vitamin-packed juice at The Juicery at The Doyle Collection. Available at The Bloomsbury’s Dalloway Terrace and The Marylebone’s 108 Bar, the menu is brimming with delightful nutritious treats, as well as drinks to help aid certain ailments. Try the Digestion Booster for an invigorating green drink featuring kale, apple, ginger, fennel, cucumber and lemon – packed full of antioxidants and perfect to hydrate your body.

Planning to meet with friends for a special occasion during January but would rather not have alcohol in the mix? Then an indulgent afternoon tea could be the perfect alternative. Head to The Kensington for the London Landmarks Afternoon Tea. Packed with savoury delights, scones, sandwiches and sweet treats, the tea is served daily from noon to 6pm at Town House. The food itself is a celebration of the very best of the capital, with sandwiches and savouries served on a London Eye-inspired tea stand. Expect classic British bites, including Colston Bassett Stilton and broccoli quiche, and a steak and ale pie, straight from East London. The sweet treats are the real showstoppers, each designed to look like a famed London landmark. From The Gherkin constructed from white chocolate coated ganache, to the Big Ben lemon curd tart, the tea offers something exciting – and just as Instagram-worthy as a fabulous cocktail!
