Downtown Dublin just got a lot more fun. Dublin is now home to two Designated Outdoor Refreshment Areas for residents and visitors to sip, stroll and stay awhile.

What is a DORA?

DORA stands for Designated Outdoor Refreshment Area. Patrons can order to-go drinks served in special “DORA” cups from local establishments and explore the rest of the district with their beverages within a specific time frame.

What are the hours?

Get ready for a good TIME. The City of Dublin has established a daily schedule to activate the DORAs. Hours are subject to change or be extended for special events. See times for DORA below. 

  • Monday - Sunday: 11 a.m. - 10 p.m. 

*Updated* DORA Map 2022


Dublin is the first city in the state of Ohio to have two separate DORAs connected by the Dublin Link pedestrian bridge. One is located in the Bridge Park district, while the other spans throughout Historic Dublin. Boundaries are marked with signage and sidewalk decals. Dublin businesses within the DORA limits will also have window clings indicating whether they allow DORA beverages or sell DORA beverages. Note: As of April 28th, 2022 the Dublin Link Pedestrian Bridge has been included in Dublin's DORA District.
