Chris’s drinking career didn’t last long because of how excessive it was from the very start.
After getting sober in 2007 and working in the treatment industry, Chris founded Sans Bar, a non-alcoholic bar where people can gather, socialize, and grow as a community whether they are in recovery or not.
Sans Bar grew from an idea and small gathering of friends into a permanent location in Austin, TX that has gained national recognition in the media and recovery community.
When Chris was asked what could be expected from walking into Sans Bar on a Friday night he said, “The first thing you’ll get is a greeting from behind the bar, the second thing you’ll notice is that the music is never too loud because we believe that the real product we’re serving is connection, and before we even talk about money you’ll get a drink in your hand.”
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Sans Bar has shifted its focus to fun and interactive online events called “Sans Bar Where You Are.”
The events include celebrity guest speakers, live music, and mocktail making classes.
