Welcome to the Argenta Outdoor Dining District!
In June 2020, the North Little Rock City Council unanimously approved an ordinance Monday night to establish an entertainment district in downtown North Little Rock, known as the Argenta Outdoor Dining District.
In effect seven days a week, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., Argenta Arts District businesses included inside the district map can offer outdoor dining, allowing visitors to socially distance and still enjoy food, drinks, and entertainment. Patrons can carry and consume alcoholic beverages within the district as well.
We are keeping it simple!
Don't bring alcoholic beverages into the district
Stay in the district boundaries
Don't bring lawn chairs into the district
Wear a mask unless you are seated at a table
The city will have marked boundaries on sidewalks as soon as possible. Argenta Outdoor Dining District rules, map, and list of participating locations will soon be available here, on social media, and in the Argenta Vibe newsletter.
Weekend Events start on Fridays, 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm and Saturdays, 10:00 am - 10:00 PM.
