Where life meets the moment
At Memento Zero Proof, we invite you to embark on a remarkable journey, where coffee and cocktails converge in a place where moments are savored, and life is celebrated. Nestled in the heart of Fishers' Nickel Plate District, we are proud to be the first alcohol-free bar and coffee shop in the state, offering a sanctuary that echoes with the Latin ideals of "memento mori" and "memento vivre" – a tribute to the art of living fully and mindfully.
Memento Mori: In Latin, "memento mori" whispers a timeless truth: "Remember that you must die." It's like the universe's way of saying, "Don't take life too seriously; none of us make it out alive anyway." So, we've created a place where you can lighten up and enjoy every moment.
Memento Vivre: Conversely, "memento vivre" reminds us to "remember to live." Think of it as your friendly reminder to put down that spreadsheet and pick up a cup of something delicious. Life's too short for spreadsheets (unless you're into that, in which case, we won't judge!).
A Unique Blend of Coffee and Cocktails: At Memento Zero Proof, our doors open early like a coffee shop, welcoming you to start your day with an array of lattes and coffee drinks crafted to perfection. As the day unfolds, we seamlessly transition into a haven that stays open late, much like a bar, where you can revel in the world of alcohol-free beer, wine, and cocktails that capture the essence of their alcoholic counterparts without the hangover.
Our commitment to excellence extends beyond our beverages. We've curated a cozy and welcoming atmosphere where you can savor every moment, whether you're sharing stories with friends, diving into a book, or simply enjoying your own company.
So, why wait? Life is a delicate balance between reminiscing about the past and raising a glass to the present. Join us on this extraordinary journey where each visit is a reminder to cherish yesterday, seize today, and celebrate life. We look forward to sharing these moments with you.

What does "Memento" mean?
Memento mori (Latin for 'remember that you [have to] die') is an artistic or symbolic trope acting as a reminder of the inevitability of death. The concept has its roots in the philosophers of classical antiquity and Christianity, and appeared in funerary art and architecture from the medieval period onwards.
For us at Memento it serves as our driving force. It is the creep of death, or rather the finiteness of life that pushes us every day to achieve our goals and leave this life without regret.
For our community we hope to instill this value of "carpe diem" or Seizing the day. Whether that is by providing a comfortable and inviting home to get work done or meet with friends and loved ones (Memento Brick & Mortar). Or simply through offering motivation and energy (Memento Apparel, Coffee, Mocktails)
