Is it common to go to a bar alone to socialize without drinking alcohol?

I'm trying to figure how I can start to be social, make new friends and potentially date. However I am not allowed to drink alcohol due to my unfortunate health. The health issue really set me back. Didn't get my degree, can't work, didn't get a car, and I haven't even tried to be social, thinking people wouldn't want to get to know me because of my circumstances (updating friends has made me lose one and be constantly ignored by most, so yes it does cause rejection). But I have decided to start pushing back to help me find more decent people and to curb depression in a more healthy manner.

So it makes me wonder if people would find it odd of me going to bars and such more to socialize than anything.
