Roughly 27,505 square feet of south downtown would fall within the Trolley District Entertainment District, if City Council approves on Nov. 12.

The entertainment district would allow alcohol consumption in common areas. This district would encompass most of the area south of Cimarron Street and north of Moreno Avenue, and between Cascade Avenue and Tejon Street, which hosts a cluster of bars and restaurants, including Cork & Cask, Atomic Cowboy and Pikes Peak Brewing Company.

Under state law, cities can issue licenses allowing alcohol consumption in common areas, and City Council adopted an enabling resolution in September 2017. Joseph Niebur, managing member of 528 S. Tejon LLC, which owns all the real estate along with RDJ Cascade Properties LLC, reports that all liquor licensees in that vicinity support creating the district, as does the Downtown Partnership.
