City of Tuscaloosa Approves Downtown Entertainment District

City of Tuscaloosa Approves Downtown Entertainment District

The Tuscaloosa City Council approved a downtown entertainment district on Fridays and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and on Sundays from noon to 9:30 p.m. The district is set to take effect Friday, Feb. 23.

Participating on-premise alcohol retailers located within that boundary can serve to-go alcoholic beverages in a City-approved cup. Alcoholic beverages can be purchased from restaurants and bars within the district boundaries and taken to Government Plaza and other areas within the district, which includes several surrounding blocks. They cannot be taken into another licensed alcohol retailer. 

Patrons can purchase up to two alcoholic beverages but are allowed to leave with only one alcoholic beverage per adult. The alcoholic beverage must be carried in the approved cup within the boundary area during the times designated for the entertainment district. No cups are allowed outside of the designated area or inside of any vehicle.
