The summer sun transforms the grand Austin tradition of patio dining into purgatory. With that in mind, here is Eater’s updated guide to the city’s best shaded, fanned, and misted patios to take alfresco dining back from the summer.
This map includes Contigo’s Texas-forever patio, the shaded refuge of Odd Duck, Jacoby’s rustic lakeside one, Valentina’s Tex Mex BBQ’s food truck patio haven, and many others. This update adds Bar Peached, Domo Alley Gato, and Joann’s.
For more chilling ideas to deal with the summer heat, scope out Austin’s best ice cream shops, ice cream sandwiches, Thai rolled ice cream, milkshakes, snow cones/shave ices/sno-balls, frozen cocktails, margaritas, frosés, aguas frescas, and poolside drinks.
