Warm weather is coming which means patio season! Denver has some great spots to spend time outside enjoying the weather. The best part is there’s a patio for everyone. From wine bars to eateries with a great drink selection, you’ll be able to find a spot with an atmosphere and views. It’s best to take advantage of the weather while it’s here so you can reminisce on the next snow day! We’ve gathered up some places for you to check out this summer season.
Postino, the Valley’s original wine café, is a great place if you’re looking for a wine bar. Each of their six locations are in historically relevant locations, with impeccably restored buildings and a relaxing feel. It’s one of the classier patios, located in LoHi. There’s also plenty of outdoor seating so you don’t have to worry about seating for your friends on your night out. The food is delectable too, ranging from appetizer dishes to individual entrees.
Avanti has a well-known patio, considering their views are enough to attract a crowd. There are numerous kitchens within the same area, giving you a ton of dining options. Grab some food downstairs, then head upstairs. With a bar located on the rooftop, you can easily get drinks and enjoy the amazing patio. It’s hard to beat their sunset views. It’s a cool building too in that it’s in a shipping container!
If you’re trying to find a good patio in RiNo, Los Chigones is the place to be. The atmosphere and culture alone are enough to keep you coming back, but you’ll definitely want to stop in for the patio when the weather is nice. Owner Troy Guard did a great job with this place in recreating Mexican dishes with twist. Their dishes vary from the traditional Mexican food, with chefs mixing in modern culinary tastes. Their margaritas are not too shabby, either.
Linger has a unique patio. It was there before all the tall buildings growing around it, but they’ve still got views and an awesome city feel. It’s a pretty popular place for food and drinks, and also because of the history behind the building. They tend to stay away from entrees and have a fairly vegetable based menu, with a lot of small plate options. Because of their appeal and offerings, they tend to fill up fast. They have some great food and drink options, based on global plates and neat, creative drinks.
