Relaxing in the sunshine with a cold brew in hand is a great way to spend time with friends, but how do you choose where to go? Don’t you worry, for a list has been made, throwing in the names of some of the best patios in the city. Try one, try them all — you’ve got all summer.

Barney’s/The Ceeps

671 Richmond St.

A favourite hangout spot, this patio deck is always jam-packed with hungry, thirsty students. Located next to The Ceeps pub, people-watching is an additional bonus for this location.

Barking Frog

209 John St.

Perfect for those warm summer nights, you’ll get a combination of a club and outdoor breeze. Put on your dancing shoes and raise those glasses as you rock out on the spacious dance floor.

Jack Astor’s Bar & Grill

660 Richmond St.

With a seating capacity of about 250 people, different levels are available along with a full bar on the rooftop. This shared address with neighbour Lone Star Texas Grill means you’ll have the same great view of street action.

Lone Star Texas Grill

660 Richmond St.

Overlooking the busy street of Richmond, this rooftop patio is designed to keep guests as comfortable as possible. Stay warm, even as the sun begins to set, with the heaters and fireplaces.

Mccabe’s Irish Pub & Grill

739 Richmond St.

An elevated patio at the top of the pub gives guests an overlook of the city on a more quiet side of downtown. Bonus: The poles holding the table umbrellas offer outlets to recharge phones for some more great Instagram pics.

Molly Bloom’s Irish Pub

700 Richmond St.

A cozy patio that seats 150 people around the perimeter of this pub. For a more chill vibe, this is the spot for you.
