Friends rising cocktail glasses for a celebratory toast against the sky in the summer

I know your friends may be inviting you to plenty of bars and spots that you prefer when you’re not so dry. I know you’re probably wondering, why bring me here? Well, have some faith. There are some great spots to enjoy even when you’re doing things a little dry.

Yelp knows how crazy things may be trying to stay dry all the way through. So, they went on to find some of the best spots in every state to celebrate “Dry January.” Of course, we had to take note of those Carolina spots for you. If you’re ditching alcohol this month then see what spots in North and South Carolina you should give a try this year. Enjoy a great mocktail at these two Carolina spots.
