Barbarella Bar

Barbarella Bar now offers two street-side patios that are great for people-watching, with one west-facing patio and one south-facing patio along Stephen Avenue. If you can, try to snag a seat outside during the restaurant’s Aperitivo Hour that runs every day from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

240 8 Ave. S.W.,


Big Fish & Open Range

The next time you’re in Marda Loop, consider dining on the patio at Big Fish & Open Range, where the newly opened main-floor patio comes complete with umbrellas and strings of lights. There’s also a second-floor patio that offers views of the Marda Loop neighbourhood and treetops.

2018 33 Ave. S.W., 403-454-0014,


The Continental

The Continental recently opened in Eat Crow’s former space, and is also operating the patio right beside the building known as Container Bar. With buildings on either side of it, this patio offers a slightly more sheltered al fresco spot to enjoy a cocktail or meal.

1131 Kensington Rd. N.W.,

FinePrint’s new patio, which faces Stephen Avenue for some great people watching opportunities, offers a relaxing spot to tuck into some tempura green beans, seared jumbo scallops or roasted garlic gnocchi.

113 8 Ave. S.W., 403-475-5655, 


Mumbai Bites

A recent addition to Inglewood, Mumbai Bites now has a street-side patio where you can tuck into its tasty Indian fare underneath an umbrella. Sip on a lychee mojito while snacking on some vada pav or the crunchy samosa chaat.

1214 9 Ave. S.E., 587-319-6600,


Native Tongues Taqueria

Earlier this year, Native Tongues’ second location opened in Britannia Plaza, and now, its all-season patio is open too. Complete with strings of lights, heaters and a patio cover for those colder days, this patio is sure to be a popular destination no matter what the weather is like this summer.

Bright and inviting with colourful potted plants, Pazzi’s expansive patio is a great spot to tuck into some pizza on a hot summer day. Plan your visit to coincide with one of the great daily features, which range from an all-day happy hour on Mondays to buckets of beer for $20 on Thursdays.

Taking over a former Vegan Street location, Ruby and the Beast features a glass-covered solarium with red accents to bask on during warm days. You’re in for a relaxing visit as you dine on the brisket burger or fried artichokes.
