Your guide to Raleigh’s Sip n’ Stroll neighborhood
RALEIGH, NC (WNCN) — On Monday, the start of Raleigh’s social neighborhood, Sip n’ Stroll Downtown. The district allows open container consumption on city sidewalks within designated boundaries. More than 60 companies have agreed to participate in one form or another.
Below is your guide to when, where, and how you can participate in the Social Quarter:
Opening hours and limits
The district will be in operation seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
But when there are special events in the district, that event will take precedence over the district. The city has decided that special event permit holders will decide if they want to allow the district to operate during their event.
Sip n’ Stroll Downtown will operate in the Fayetteville Street neighborhood of Raleigh. Its boundaries extend to the Red Hat Amphitheater, the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts, and the edge of Moore Square.
Alcohol is not permitted in city parks and social district mugs are not permitted in Moore Square or Nash Square.
The City of Raleigh and Downtown Raleigh Alliance are in the process of obtaining a specific social district. While these are secure, businesses must provide their own disposable cups which show where the cup was filled and the time and date it was sold.
Cups should not exceed 16 ounces and recycling receptacles should be placed near the door to the business.
Customers cannot sell more than two beers or wines at a time. They cannot be sold more than one drink containing alcohol at a time.
Businesses are not required to participate in the district. Businesses domiciled in the neighborhood can choose to sell drinks in their establishment, welcome them but not sell them, or prohibit all outside drinks from entering their establishment.
Window stickers indicating whether a business is participating in the district will be placed on their window.
So far, more than 40 companies have agreed to sell drinks as part of the neighborhood. 20 others agreed to welcome the drinks in their establishment but not to sell them.
