Discover Our Downtown Social District
We welcome you to join us this summer at the Downtown St. Clair Shores Social District to enjoy various activities throughout our downtown, including, live music, food trucks, yard games, and more. The Social District allows visitors to purchase alcoholic beverages from participating bars and restaurants and then enjoy them throughout the District's Common Area. The current Commons Area hours of operation are 5:00 PM - 12:00 AM the following Saturdays:
May 13 & 27 - June 10 & 24 - July 8 & 22 - August 12 & 26 - September 9 & 23 - October 14 & 28
During the Commons Area hours of operations, Greater Mack Ave, will be closed from 9 Mile south to the 9 Mack/Cavalier Drive intersection.
Beverages may only be enjoyed from designated containers that feature the Downtown St. Clair Shores Social District logo inside the boundaries of the Commons Area. Currently, there are four participating venues: Copper Hop Brewing Company, Shores Inn, The Firehouse Pub, and Cache Cocktail & Wine Bar. Other venues may be added as they receive their Social District permit from the State.
Visitors are welcome to consume within the boundaries of the Social District Commons Area during the hours of operation.
Questions or are interested in becoming involved, email the Downtown Social District.
How it works...
A Social District allows for participating bars and restaurants to sell alcohol in a marked container to customers that can then leave that establishment and move about within the Commons Area during Social District hours of operation.
This does NOT allow for the public to "bring your own" alcohol into the Social District.
Any alcoholic liquor sold to customers for consumption in the Commons Area by a licensee with a Social District Permit must comply with all of the following:
- The serving container must prominently display the name of the licensee's trade name, logo, or some other mark that is unique to the licensee who sold the alcohol.
- The serving container must prominently display a logo or some other mark that's unique to the Commons Area.
- The serving container cannot be made of glass.
- The serving container does not have a liquid capacity of over 16 ounces.
A customer who purchases alcoholic liquor to be consumed in the Commons Area may not take that beverage into another bar or restaurant.
A customer who purchases alcoholic liquor to be consumed in a Commons Area may not take that beverage outside of the Social District unless the container is sealed by the establishment that sold you the beverage.
