MOSA (Milan Outdoor Social District)* allows individuals to purchase alcoholic beverages (beer, wine, mixed spirit drinks, spirits, or mixed drinks) from licensed premises and then consume those beverages within the boundaries of the Social District (see map below) during defined hours of operation.
MOSA is designed to encourage movement in our downtown, allowing people to sit in the commons areas or walk through the district with alcoholic beverages in branded cups. Beverages must be purchased from licensed premises within the MOSA district. At present, The Owl, the American Legion, Pepper's Mexican Grill, and Fender's are the only licensed establishments.
There are three commons areas (see yellow on map above) within the district. Signs are posted at MOSA district boundaries to clearly mark where the district ends. MOSA beverages are not permitted beyond those points.
Please note that per State law, you may not take a MOSA beverage from one MOSA establishment into another MOSA establishment
Enjoy MOSA and Please help to keep our downtown clean by disposing of MOSA cups in trash or recycle bin within the district before exiting.
