June 20, 2019

If you haven’t already heard, the long-anticipated open container policy was passed for Celebration Pointe! Yep, this means you can sip an alcoholic beverage outdoors as you lounge in the Promenade, stroll City Walk, and listen to live music while you sit by the fire pit. After you shout, “Yes!” and jump up and down squealing with joy, you may have questions about the new policy. No worries, we got you covered. Here is everything you need to know about Celebration Pointe’s open container policy.

What is the Open Container Policy?

The open container policy was a piece of legislation passed by Gov. Ron DeSantis, specifically for Celebration Pointe. Now, Celebration Pointe guests are able to enjoy alcoholic beverages from open containers in designated areas of the development.

Sean McIntosh, Celebration Pointe’s Senior Vice President of Asset Management, says, “We would like to thank State Representative Clovis Watson Jr. for sponsoring the legislation, the Florida House and Senate for supporting it, and Governor DeSantis for signing it. The Alachua County Commissioners were also instrumental in changing code a few years ago to help lead the local effort for this policy.”

What Businesses are Participating?

You can pick up your drink of choice from any of the following businesses:

  • Regal Celebration Pointe 10 & RPX
  • MidiCi – The Neapolitan Pizza Company
  • Decadent- A Dessert & Coffee Bar
  • Hotel Indigo
  • The Keys (Coming Soon)

All alcoholic beverages for those opting for the open container experience will be served in a clear plastic cup. Only drinks purchased from one of the above listed Celebration Pointe establishments are permitted on the premises.

Where Can I Go?

To keep everyone safe and happy, there are special areas designated at Celebration Pointe for the Open Container policy. Patrons can walk from the Celebration Pointe City Walk, The Promenade, and Tech Park with their beverages of choice. It’s also worth noting that drinks are not permitted inside retail stores.
