If you’re like us, chances are you always have a drink in your hand. Whether you’re like Danielle with her emotional support water bottle or Kyle with her mug of black coffee — no matter the time of day, there’s a beverage at the ready.
In honor of #DrinkUpGreenville Week, we’re sharing some of our favorite spots for GVL drinks (alcoholic + non-alcoholic).
🍹 Danielle’s pick: Juniper, 315 S. Main St.
The zero proof “Juice Bomb” is Danielle’s go-to on a night out with friends.
🍹 Kyle’s pick: Group Therapy Pub & Playground, 320 Falls St., Ste. G
If you’re looking for a classic cocktail sans alcohol, try the “Not Your Grandpa’s Old Fashioned,” made with Spiritless bourbon.

🥤 Danielle’s pick: The Crazy Mason, 942 S. Main St. (coming soon)
While The Crazy Mason’s Greenville location hasn’t opened yet, Danielle got a taste in Myrtle Beach + can’t wait to sip on the over-the-top ice cream creations when the milkshake spot opens across from Fluor Field at the West End.
🥤 Kyle’s pick: Clare’s Creamery, 1635 E. North St.
If it’s made with Clare’s small-batch ice cream, like the Honey Vanilla, you know it’s going to be creamy and full of flavor.

🫖 Danielle’s pick: Cosmic Rabbits Tea Company, 131 E. McBee Ave.
From the flavorful loose teas to boba, this is the perfect spot for an afternoon pick-me-up.
🫖 Kyle’s pick: Camilla Kitchen, 130 S. Main St.
Cozy up with a new read and try signature + seasonal tea blends, like the “Life of Chai” latte at this cafe inside M. Judson Booksellers.
