National tour brings bar to Anchorage for one night only
 
Sans Bar will take over Uncle Leroy’s Coffee in Anchorage on March 30 as part of a 2019 national tour to show the U.S. how to party sober. Anchorage is the fourth stop of the tour, which includes Seattle, Portland, New York City and St. Louis, among others. Tickets can be purchased online now, or at the door. 
 
Tickets include buzz-free drinks mixed by the bar’s founder, Chris Marshall, and live music from Alaska’s Emma Hill and Quinn Christopherson. Doors will open at 6 p.m. and is hosted in Anchorage by Recover Alaska to celebrate March as Alaska’s Sobriety Awareness Month.
 
“I’m coming to Alaska to share a safe and inviting atmosphere for people who want to have a good time without the alcohol,” said Marshall. “We’ll offer live music, a vibrant, inclusive environment, and sober drinks that you won’t find anywhere else. You don’t have to be sober for life, just sober when you visit Sans Bar.”
 
Marshall opened Sans Bar in Austin, Texas, in 2017 as a pop-up that traveled around the city, and last year opened a space all their own. Sans Bar is now the most consistently open sober bar and one of very few alcohol-free bars in the U.S. to have a fixed location.
 
“Alaskans are in for a treat,” said Recover Alaska’s Executive Director Tiffany Hall. “We’ve hosted several alcohol-free parties in the past and we’ve always had a great time, but Sans Bar events are next level. Our sober community is growing and these events allow us to come together in a comfortable environment, meet new people, and share the bond of a substance-free lifestyle.”
 
Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. The first 60 people in the door will receive a free commemorative pint glass, while other items will be available for purchase throughout the night. 
 
Sobriety Awareness Month celebrates the decision of Alaskans living a sober, healthy lifestyle and encourages others to recognize those making a sober choice.
