Smoked meat and craft beer headline this popular watering hole in Parkdale. The selection of southern BBQ taste and great bourbon based cocktails draw people from all over the city. Don’t try going here for lunch, they only open their doors at 5pm making it solely an evening establishment.

Pauper’s Pub

The name Sky Yard in itself surrounds the rooftop patio with enough intrigue to make it a must see for Toronto patios. This climate defying patio is open all year round, whether you are looking to enjoy a meal with friends in the summer breeze or a warm drink with that special someone in the crisp winter air, the Drake will not disappoint.

El Catrin

El Catrin is the definition of a patio done right. Their patio might be one of the largest in the city, it is located in the distillery district, and it is also a tequila bar. It sounds like a recipe for a great time if you ask us.

How about some amazing Italian food as the sun shines off of your plate? Sounds pretty irresistible to us. This restaurant has three locations, satisfying people all over the city of Toronto day in and day out. Not only are their patios great, but their dishes have been regarded by some as the best Italian cuisine in the city.

The Porch

The open roof top has garden lights strung overhead with couch and table seating and even a food truck setup on the corner. Yes that is right, there is a food truck on the roof. The Porch has the looks and the atmosphere of one of those awesome beer commercial we always dream of being in. A must visit this summer.

With a line that is always out the door and down the street, Warehouse on Queen as quickly become a hotspot for $5 food and a cold beer. The laid back vibe of the place is accented by TV screens showing old music videos and classic MC standoffs, which never cease to bring a flood of teenage memories back. The patio boast a beautiful view of the CN tower and a front row seat to MTV events, a great atmosphere for making new friends.
