Sip and Stroll

Sip & Stroll Presented by PNC

Third Thursdays
December 21st | 5-8 p.m.
Southbank Riverwalk

Based on the successful 6th Annual #DTJax Gala of the same name, we invite you to stroll the stunning Southbank Riverwalk every Third Thursday of the month. Spanning from the DoubleTree Hotel to The Southbank Hotel, enjoy live music, food vendors, bars and a picnic area – all with a picturesque sunset backdrop. 

Alcoholic beverages in a branded Sip & Stroll cup are permitted on the Riverwalk during the event and are provided at either one of the Riverwalk bars. Cash is encouraged.

Sip and Stroll is Presented by PNC in Partnership with the Downtown Investment Authority.

Special Note: Daytime construction has begun at the Peninsula. Please pardon any dust while the Sip & Stroll footprint improves.


Paid parking is available at Riverplace Tower’s Visitor Lot (1201 Riverplace Blvd.) and at the Chart House Parking lot (1501 Riverplace Blvd.)
