Friday, Apr 30, 2021 at 4:36 pm


At the April 27th City Council meeting, Council approved Bexley’s application to establish a Designated Outdoor Refreshment Area (DORA) along E. Main Street. DORAs allow qualified liquor permit holding establishments to serve alcoholic beverages in a specified cup pursuant to the law within the designated area during the hours of operation. 

Qualifying Permit Holders:

  • Moshi Sushi
  • Rusty Bucket
  • Brassica
  • Giuseppe’s Ritrovo
  • Harvest Pizza
  • Kittie’s Cafe
  • Cafe Istanbul

Benefits of a DORA include the ability to further social distance outside, increase accessibility to outdoor dining in front of liquor permit holders, and economic support to businesses. Bexley joins several other central Ohio communities with an established DORA, including Grove City, Hilliard, and Powell. 

The DORA will go into effect starting in June, and have the following hours of operation:

  • Monday – Friday: 4:00 – 10:00 pm
  • Saturday – Sunday: 11:00 am – 10:00 pm
