The Sights of the Season from a Midtown Patio

By Becky Larson,

Just when it felt like we would never see the sun again, spring is finally in the air and long summer nights are on their way.   It’s time for Midtowners to come out of hibernation and bust out the tank tops, BBQs and baseball.

One highlight of the warmer weather we can always look forward to in Midtown is the restaurants and bars in our neighborhood that provide great outside seating.

There is nothing better than lounging on a restaurant patio with a cold beverage in hand during the spring and summer months.  This is the perfect time of year to head out for happy hour after work or grab a glass of wine (or your warm weather beverage of choice) on the weekend and relax with friends.

The outside seating area of Beach Hut Deli always makes for a good time for the midtown/downtown crowd.  Zócalo Restaurant has a big patio and the location makes for great people watching.  Head over to L Wine Lounge or 58 Degrees if you’re looking for excellent outside seating with a “touch of class.”  Rumor has it Paragary’s Bar & Oven patio area is something a Midtowner must experience as well.

These are just a sampling of the many places where you can watch the Midtown world go by this season.  So get out there and soak up the sun that has finally come our way!
