COUNCIL EXTENDS DORA HOURS TO BOOST BUSINESS

City of Harrison residents and visitors are making their way to the City's historic downtown district to sip adult beverages while strolling and shopping along Harrison Avenue. 

According to 1860 Taproom and Bottleshop Co-Owner Doug Mangold, a handful of warmer days have brought patrons to enjoy their outdoor seating. 

1860 and several other businesses located in the City's Designated Outdoor Refreshment Area (DORA) are permitted to sell beer and wine in to-go cups. DORA patrons must follow the rules, but the idea is to create an atmosphere for people to eat, shop and play.

"Plans are in place to add public seating and cafe lighting to the alleyway between Parlour on the Avenue and Village Pharmacy," Mangold said. "Bistro style tables and chairs have been ordered and we hope to have them in place in the coming months."

The District received a $4,000 grant from the Community Improvement Corporation to add the lighting and seating, which downtown businesses hope will attract more people. 

City Council approved a resolution April 6, 2021 to extend the hours of operation for the DORA. The DORA is open Monday through Thursday 4 to 10 p.m., Friday 4 p.m. to midnight, Saturdays noon to midnight, and Sundays noon to 10 p.m. 

The resolution stipulated that the operating hours would be extended to begin at noon each day May 20 through August 24. 

DORA cups can be purchased and filled at 1860 Taproom & Bottleshop, Heist + Co., The Coffee Peddlar, Market Street Grille, and Harrison Moose Lodge 2633. For more information and updates, visit The District DORA page.
