Coming soon to the East Village: No More Cafe, 'a haven for alcohol-free celebration'

Here's some potential respite for anyone tired of a booze-heavy nightlife scene.

No More Cafe, which opens next Monday at 352 E. 13th St. just west of First Avenue, is touted as a "zero-proof hideaway." 

Per the Cafe's website
A Haven for Alcohol-Free Celebration. Zero-proof is more than just abstaining from alcohol. It's about fully embracing life's experiences without compromise. At No More Cafe, we offer a way to enjoy socializing and taste without relying on alcohol, ensuring every choice feels like an upgrade. 
Rodrigo Nogueira, who worked as a corporate chef at Michael Mina Group, a San Francisco-based restaurant management company specializing in creating and operating full-service dining concepts, is behind this venture. 

In an Instagram post last month, he wrote: 
A little over a year ago, I reached a personal milestone: no more alcohol. I embarked on a journey across the country in search of a place that resonated with my new lifestyle. I wanted an environment where enjoying going out meant engaging in great conversations, savoring delicious food, and relishing proper drinks — all without the shadow of alcohol.

Other alcohol-free destinations in the East Village include Hekate Café & Elixir Lounge, which opened in January 2022 at 167 Avenue B between 10th Street and 11th Street.
