Area Social Districts
We welcome you to join us in the Saugatuck, Douglas, and Fennville social districts as you stroll through these charming downtown areas while waiting for a table. This program allows visitors to purchase alcoholic beverages from participating bars and restaurants and then enjoy them throughout each district's common areas.
Visitors are welcome to consume within the boundaries of each social district during the designated program days and times noted below. Beverages may only be enjoyed from designated containers that feature each social district’s logo.
The Saugatuck social district hours are from 11 am to 11 pm daily. The following venues are currently participating:
Coppercraft Distillery Tasting Room
El Burrito Feliz
Fenn Valley Vineyards
