Patio time is special for Austin, when people get to enjoy the sun and perfect weather, just before the dreaded summer heat consumes the city. The city has a strong selection of outdoor spaces built for perfect alfresco dining and drinking, available all year-round.
Here are Austin's most essential patios, like Contigo’s reliable rustic space, Banger’s epic beer garden, Lenoir's wine garden, the fun patio of Kemuri, and others. This update of the map includes Cosmic Coffee + Beer Garden, Buzz Mill, Nixta Taqueria, Kalimotxo, LoLo, Tamale House East, and Arbor Food Park.
As with all businesses right now, be sure to call ahead to make sure each restaurant is still open or if there are updates on current offerings and service models, as things are changing constantly. Follow the business’s rules, be sure to wear a mask, and tip well.
