Patio Season is here. Denver has a ton of outdoor eating and drinking options for gazing at the beautiful mountains while sipping an IPA. Here are our favorites:

Zeppelin Station - Our newest global food hall is open in RiNo. Enjoy Upstairs at Big Trouble for Asian inspired treats, Dandy Lion Coffee, Gelato Boy, Last Call and a host of other food stalls to tantalize your taste buds.

Brazen Neighborhood Eatery - A very cool little outdoor space for enjoying a fine wine and new American Cuisine in Berkeley.

Linger - If you're not too creeped out by the fact that this was Olingers Mortuary before turning into a hip restaurant, you'll enjoy some tremendous views and fine Asian street style food.


The Populist - No surprise that RiNo has so many cool outdoor spaces for eating and drinking. The Populist has a really neat outdoor space with Community tables, emerald green walls of Ivy and lightbulb strings all around. Very cozy.

Avanti Food & Beverage - The Grand Daddy of outdoor spaces in Denver.  There is stadium seating devoted to viewing, arguably, the best view of our beautiful City. Different chefs incubate new food concepts and there is a steady change of offerings at Avanti.

Recess Beer Garden - This cool new spot in LoHi conjures images of your elementary school playground. Bring your dogs and human friends and enjoy craft beers and American Food.


54Thirty - Check out one of the coolest rooftop decks in the City on top of the new Meridian Hotel. Super cool.

Our Mutual Friend Brewing - Of course another one in RiNo. They won a Silver Medal at the Great American Beer Festival for their wood and barrel aged sour.

El Five -  Arguably the best view of Denver from one of the nicest patios in town. If you're looking for a perfect place to meet for Happy Hour, this is the place. I've been there 4-5 times around 4:30 PM and it's not crowded so you'll have the pick of the best seats on the patio.

El Five

Los Chingones - A perfect deck for sipping on some of the best Margs in town, it's Chingones! (Spanish slang for Bad A$$)

Briar Common Brewery & Eatery - This Jefferson Park neighborhood restaurant and brewery features a great rooftop deck overlooking the park.


Historians Ale House - A very unpretentious rooftop patio with a full bar, 2 TV's, Mountain Views and more. Grab a burger and a beer.

Kaos Pizzeria - After a day of play in Wash Park, head over to this quaint spot and grab a Pizza in the front yard of an old home turned pizza shop.
