It was considered a pilot program at first but I think it is safe to say we’re official now. Sip n’ Stroll is ready for prime time as new signs have been installed around downtown Raleigh. The social district, which allows people to drink beer and wine throughout certain areas of downtown, has been around for a year now but this August, enhancements to the district have been put in place.
In addition to the better signage, the area has expanded to include the warehouse district. The hours are an easy to remember 10am-10pm every day and even more, more attractive trash cans are being put in place.
The social district’s start was a way to help the businesses in and around Fayetteville Street which are still below pre-pandemic levels. Overall, the district’s feedback has been positive and after the year-long pilot, here we are with more permanent signs and commitment from the city.
You can dive into the Sip n’ Stroll details here on the city’s website where they also have a very nice map of the boundaries as well as every participating business. These are the only places where you can take and bring your to-go drink from. As of this writing, I count between 30 and 40 spots available which is a pretty good amount so far.
