My name is Chris Marshall from Austin, TX, the live music capital of the world. My mission is to create a safe and inviting atmosphere for people who want to have a good time without alcohol. We will offer live music, a vibrant, upscale environment, and sober drinks that you won’t find anywhere else. From happy hour to last call, Sans Bar will offer a safe, sober space to make authentic connections with people just like you. What we strive to create is the environment which will inspire our guests to engage in sober fun and to become the best version of themselves. I have been sober since February 16th 2007, and Sans Bar is a perfect combination of my passion for celebrating life, and work experience in both counseling and hospitality.
The inspiration from Sans Bar comes from my work as a counselor. Time and time again, clients shared the struggle of finding a place to go that is fun, and energetic but safe for those who want to have a great night without alcohol. I’m saddened by the loss of so many celebrities, friends and family members who felt like there was no place for them to turn. I work tirelessly in memory of those wonderful people who are no longer here to experience an abundant life.
