When your ideal afternoon involves cocktail menus, dining alfresco and plenty of sun, know that these patios are all perfect for your day drinking needs.

Just as elegant as the indoor portion of the restaurant, Ki’s patio is the perfect venue for the discerning day drinker looking to sample the restaurant’s summer cocktail menu. The patio is 80-per cent covered to protect guests from sudden rain or too much sun and far enough from the downtown traffic on 4th Avenue S.W. that it’s quiet enough for afternoon chit-chat or business drinks.

Molly Malone’s

Never noticed Molly’s patio? Look up. The rooftop at this cozy pub in Kensington is packed with tables full of patrons enjoying pints under the summer sun. The bonus is that since you’re invisible from the street below, no one is going to catch you playing hooky from work to go mid-week day drinking.

Ship and Anchor

The sunny and very public sidewalk patio at the Ship is the place to park on a sunny day when a pint of beer is the only thing that will do. Don’t have a pal to drink with? Don’t worry — even if there’s no one you know in the bar, it’s more than likely a friend will spot you from the street and won’t be able to resist the invitation to join in.
