Social District Expands Toward Raleigh Union Station

Published May 18, 2023 by Salem Barcus

Last August, the City of Raleigh proudly introduced its inaugural social district known as Sip n’ Stroll.

Thanks to its tremendous success during the pilot phase, the City Council has decided to expand and improve the district. They approved the following noteworthy changes, scheduled to take effect on August 15, 2023:

  • The inclusion of the Warehouse District and Hillsborough Street, providing an enhanced and diverse experience for visitors.
  • The operating hours have been extended by an additional hour, allowing patrons to enjoy the district’s offerings from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on a daily basis.
  • To further improve the district’s infrastructure, the council has taken measures to install additional permanent signage, ensuring clear navigation, and increased the number of trash and recycling bins.

Of note is that Moore Square and Nash Square are not part of the expansion area.

York is pleased to provide property management, venue management, and leasing services at Raleigh Union Station.
