When this Italian restaurant moved into Redwater Rustic Grille’s former space in Aspen Woods, it also inherited the restaurant’s beautiful patio that overlooks a neighbourhood pond. The 50-seat patio is the perfect spot to tuck into some freshly made pasta and sip on a glass of wine.

This sandwich and liquor bar’s new patio is the perfect spot to enjoy a sandwich in the sun this summer. It only has four seats but boasts excellent people watching opportunities along 17 Ave. S.W. Come with three friends and you’ll have the whole licensed patio to yourselves.

Chairman’s Steakhouse

This Mahogany steakhouse takes its alfresco dining seriously with a 32-seat north patio overlooking Mahogany Lake and a 44-seat south patio overlooking a courtyard water feature and playground. No matter which side you sit on, your dining experience will be complemented by patio heaters and televisions. And if that weren’t enough, there’s also a third patio for those in the private dining room.

The Dandelion has added some cheery yellow tables and black chairs around its building for those who want to enjoy their vegan eats in the sun. Try the lentil and quinoa burger, buckwheat pancakes or tacos on Taco Tuesday at this Ramsay restaurant.

Dublin Calling

This self-proclaimed “party pub” just opened in Calgary’s Westgate neighbourhood in June. Come for the shareable pub fare, games like ping pong and pool and the sizable patio equipped with bright red umbrellas and strings of lights.

When Local 510 was the restaurant in this spot, the patio was fenced off from the sidewalk by walls. The space now belongs to Lulu Bar, and the new Pacific-inspired restaurant has changed things up. There’s still plenty of seating on this patio, which runs along the south and west walls of the restaurant. But while the patio section on the west side of the building is a little more secluded, there are no longer walls separating the patio on the south side from the sidewalk. On nice days, the restaurant also opens up the street-facing garage doors, which almost gives the entire restaurant an alfresco dining vibe.

Mister Chen’s new patio is one of the larger ones to join Calgary’s patio scene this year. Surrounded by a short fence and flower planters, the patio runs along the front of the restaurant and all the way down its north wall too. Grab a seat and take advantage of great deals like all-you-can-eat baos for $20 on Mondays.

The Rec Room

Visiting The Rec Room at Deerfoot City to play some arcade games or catch a concert? Well, now you can also enjoy some patio time during your visit. The entertainment centre’s new two-storey restaurant patio is the perfect spot to enjoy lettuce wraps, wood-fired pizzas, short rib sliders, a burger and more. There are even some group games you can play out there.
