OK, I’m making it official! This newly gorgeous weather means patio season has arrived – it’s time to gather some friends, find a place in the sun and something to sip & nibble on. So where am I going? That depends! Do I want to chat over cocktails till the sun goes down, or have lunch and a latte somewhere shady and peaceful? It’s all about finding the right spot to fit my mood. So this year, I’m making a list of why I love the patios I love. First up…
I have to give lots of points here to Tavern United at the MTS Centre – their rooftop patio gives a view of the downtown skyline like nowhere else. If I want more greenery, Muddy Waters at The Forks is one of my favourites – their patio is perfectly placed to let you sit under the trees and watch the river meander past. And the Hu’s on First patio has a claim to fame no one else can match – book ahead and you may get to sit overlooking the field during a Goldeyes game! Baseball and hot dogs are classic, but baseball with cocktails, curry pad thai and spring rolls? Now that’s original.
What are your picks for best patio views downtown?
My next patio stop – coffee heaven!
