Every year, there are organizations and individuals whose positive impact on revitalization efforts in Historic Downtown Bryan is simply extraordinary. The Mayor’s Downtown Impact Award, created in 2000, celebrates progress in the city’s oldest business district, while recognizing those who go above and beyond to contribute to this progress.

Recognized as a Cultural District in 2014, Downtown Bryan has seen overwhelming success with First Fridays and other special events while continuing to grow, offering additional amenities for residents and visitors alike. “We, at the City of Bryan, know that when visitors have a great experience in Downtown Bryan, they will return,” said Mayor Andrew Nelson. “And they will return with friends and family.” This award serves as a way to recognize those who continue to invest time, effort, and resources into making Bryan better.

Downtown Uncorked Wine Bar opened its doors as a fun, vibrant space for patrons to enjoy one another’s company. This unique, locally-owned venue offers visitors a place to meet for a quick pizza, dessert, or glass of wine in a warm atmosphere. Valued customers have described Downtown Uncorked as “an excellent place in Downtown Bryan with rustic charm and a friendly, knowledgeable staff” and as a venue that “offers the right combination for small and large groups in search of a laid-back evening.”
