SPANISH FORT, Ala. (WKRG) — A new entertainment district could soon be open in Baldwin County. The Spanish Fort City Council approved a proposed entertainment district in its new container park.
Council members expect the addition will make a big impact. Councilman J.R. Smith said, “I think it’s definitely something we currently don’t have and need”
Having kids in their 20’s, Smith says the new entertainment district gives more options in Baldwin County. He said, “When they come home, they may go to Mobile, or to Fairhope somewhere to meet their friends, so I think it’ll be a great place for us to have for our younger adults to go too.”
So far, four venues have been approved to sell alcohol. Once the venues get approved by the state’s ABC Board, they’ll be allowed to serve spirits in the “spirited city” with certain rules. Smith said, “We didn’t limit the size of the cups or things, so we could have more outdoor like if you want to have a pitcher of beer, you could have a pitcher of beer outside. Some of the cities won’t allow you to take anything more than one 16 ounce glass outside.”
The container park is expected to be open the first week of December.
