Eating Out

Questionable bar etiquette?

I like taking part in happy hour specials in restaurants all the time. The only problem is, a lot of restaurants seem to limit their happy hour items to the bar area, which is fine, but I'm not a big alcohol drinker. More than that, I don't like the taste of it. Can I safely assume bartenders are unused to, and maybe even dislike, people like me sitting at their bar, not ordering drinks, and thus, not increasing their tip jar?

When I go out with others who drink, this isn't an issue, but sometimes, I don't. I am more than happy to tip generously for nonalcoholic drinks (soda, coffee, tea, milkshakes, etc....) and food, but I'm just wondering if this is generally bad etiquette at the bar.

Thanks!
