Press release from the City of Lowell.
This Friday is it!
Lowell, MI – The Showboat City Social District opens Friday, Feb. 19th at 4:00 p.m. Bars and restaurants within the Social District have a special permit with their liquor license to sell alcohol in Social District cups. You can take that drink and walk outside within the District area to drink it. There will be fire pits in select areas where you can warm up and chat with friends.
The Showboat City Social District runs along Main Street from Washington Street to just west of New Union Brewery. It also includes Riverwalk Plaza, Veteran’s Park and the parking lot by it, Monroe Street from Main Street north to the alley behind the businesses on Main, and Riverside Drive and N. Broadway Drive to the alley behind the businesses on Main. Monroe Street will be closed to vehicle traffic during District hours. Social District hours are Monday-Friday 4:00-10:00 p.m., Saturday noon-10:00 p.m., Sunday noon-8:00 p.m.
You may not bring your own beverages to drink in the District, nor may you refill your District cup from alcohol purchased from other sources. Only alcohol purchased from a participating establishment in a District cup is allowed.
Participating businesses with permits include Big Boiler Brewery, Flat River Grill, Larkin’s Saloon, Main Street BBQ, New Union Brewery and Sneakers. Look for the Social District signage at each location. Worried about the trash? Cups will be recyclable and recycle bins will be placed throughout the Social District to give you an easy opportunity to keep it clean.
Lowell Police Department will add additional coverage in the District during open hours, as well. Let’s enjoy this opportunity and be respectful of each other and our City. Maintain distance, drink responsibly, have a designated driver and keep our City clean. Cheers!
