Downtown Bryan features a Designated Outdoor Refreshment Area (DORA) where individuals 21 and over can consume alcoholic beverages.


  • Drinks must be in DORA cups, which are available at designated vendors. See the map for a list of participating businesses, along with a layout of the permitted area. Please note: While the courthouse square is within the DORA boundaries, no alcoholic beverages are permitted on the courthouse lawn.
  • Individual businesses within the DORA boundaries can determine whether drinks are allowed inside their establishments. Look for a sign near the entrance that indicates that business’ preference.
  • The DORA may be suspended during certain downtown events.
