Cooler temperatures mean it’s time to get outside and dine al fresca! Here on the Upper West Side we live for a great patio, so we compiled a list of our top 5 favorite patios to share with you in hopes that you will love them as much as we do!
Patio with the Best View
If you haven’t ventured into Vistancia to experience V’s Taproom, we highly recommend you check it out. Perfect for date night or relaxing after a round of golf, this spot offers some of the best views and ambiance in the West Valley. We recommend the wood fired pizza, millionaire burger, or the bruschetta and we love that they serve local Lucidi Vodka.
Best Patio for Kids
We love to take the kiddos to CHAR Pizzaria Napoletana where you can dine outside while they play Connect 4 or Foosball. They offer specials everyday of the week, but if you’re bringing the kiddos along on Monday they eat free! The adults love to indulge in the Bacon and Corn pizza or the house salad!
Patio with the Best Food
Urban Margarita won us over with their patio and their mouthwatering menu! We especially love the Short Rib Flautas and the Prickly Pear Margarita, but you can’t go wrong with anything on this menu! Come hungry!
Best Dog Friendly Patio
Lakeside Bar and Grillhas recently renovated their dog friendly patio. In addition, they remodeled the interior, updated their menu, and even have authentic tamales on Saturday evenings. We love hanging out here because the wall to wall TV’s make it a great spot to catch the game and relax with our pups!
Patio with Best Happy hour
Peoria Artisian Brewery offers their hand-crafted beers for $4.50 daily during their “Hoppy Hour”. Additionally, they have cocktail, wine, and food specials and one of the best patios on the Upper West Side! We hear they might be expanding their patio in the future too!
