Whether you’re looking for a last minute reprieve from a hard day’s work or excited to just enjoy a nice craft beer while soaking up some sun, a good patio is the best place to leave your cares behind and immerse yourself into good drinks, eats and conversation.
Here are some of the best patios that you won’t want to miss out on this summer:
5 Brock Avenue
Known for their Spicy Pickled Green Tomatoes, tacky taxidermy décor and their Beergarita (their signature cocktail), Electric Mud BBQ’s patio is a fantastically casual atmosphere that boasts delicious eats at a great price.
145 John Street
For those who love the mix of drinks and great people watching, The Ballroom has a great street-level patio for soaking in the entertainment district action, but if you want a more intimate atmosphere and don’t mind the occasional sound of falling pins, their upper-level patio is equipped with a bar, TVs and open to tonnes of sunlight.
1702 Queen St. East
For a taste of Ireland on a waterfront, Murphy’s Law is the perfect patio to flock to for a towering view of the beach. Great for summer days or nights, this patio is perfect for lazy afternoon cocktails or a late evening night cap with an unparallel scenic view that will never disappoint.
1296 Queen St. West
Looking for a bar with vibrant entertainment, live music and a fantastic selection of drinks? Cadillac Lounge’s expansive patio, situated at the back of the bar, has tonnes of seating available for groups of all sizes, with big umbrellas for shade and if you’re in the mood – there’s also a pool table.
1958 Queen St. East
Sitting on the corner of Queen and Kenilworth Ave, the Stone Lion’s patio is a favourite hot spot for locals of “The Beach” neighbourhood. With an incredible list of drinks from beer, wine to cocktails of all kinds, open Mic Thursdays and live Jazz Saturdays, there’s always something happening at the Stone Lion.
