The Brink Encourages the North West to go dry for January

13 January 2017


The Brink is encouraging the North West to cut down on alcohol consumption to coincide with Alcohol Concern’s Dry January initiative

Crowned ‘Bar of the Year’ at the Liverpool City Region Tourism Awards in 2015, the dry bar and cafĂ© serves up a range of 130 alcohol-free beverages including mocktails, juices and detoxing presses and smoothies.

Located on Parr Street, the venue also hosts an eclectic wellbeing programme comprising yoga, singing and gardening to name a few.

General Manager of The Brink Carl Bell said: “For those looking to get 2017 off to a healthy start following a perhaps hectic festive party season, the Dry January initiative notes several health benefits including weight-loss, better sleep quality and the opportunity to stay healthier for longer – 65% of those who took part in last year’s Dry January sustained reduced levels of drinking after staying sober for the month.

“With millions across the UK expected to go ‘dry’ this January, The Brink aims to provide a safe haven whereby guests can stay socialised and entertained throughout the month of January and far beyond. With a focus on recovery and wellbeing, The Brink is committed to offering an alcohol-free environment all year round, with a number of support options available for those who may be struggling with alcohol and addiction.”

Detoxing presses and smoothies include ‘Natural Boost’ (pineapple, banana, coconut milk & honey), which can help to increase energy levels the natural way, ‘Inspire’ (pink grapefruit, orange & apple), an excellent source of vitamin c, fibre, potassium & lycopene and ‘Heavenly’ (sweet potato, pear & pineapple), with health benefits including youthful skin and a boost to the immune system. The Brink is also home to a range of regular events and classes focused on recovery, wellbeing and community support.

Carl added: “Month on month, The Brink offers a huge variety of events for both the recovery community and the general public alike to enjoy, such as Singing for The Soul, Morning Meditation, Yoga and our newest addition – Garden Club, offering therapeutic exercise and the chance to grow a community that shares different skills, crafts and ideas.

“With the increasingly popular Dry January highlighting the beneficial effects of going sober, we hope that the initial break from alcohol will encourage people across the North West to think about their drinking habits to cut down in the long term.”
