How to DORA in Athens
During the days & times the DORA is in effect, people 21 years old and over can purchase alcoholic beverages from a permitted establishment and carry them within a clearly defined area within Athens!
DORA is turned ON from May 5 – August 15
and will run only during certain times throughout the week:
Thursdays 5pm – 10pm
Fridays/Saturdays 12pm – 10pm
Sundays 12pm – 8pm
* After the DORA end time, you must NOT have an open container of alcohol on the street!
You must STAY IN THE BOUNDARIES while enjoying a DORA drink!
Athens DORA boundaries will be clearly marked on intersections in the uptown area. Essentially, these boundaries make a rectangle around uptown Athens and also includes areas near Station/Depot and W Union. Check for boundary signs at all intersections.
