With cooler days behind us (we hope), it is time to embrace Austin’s warm weather and relax at some of the city’s finest outdoor patios. From local lounges to scenic lakeside hangs, we have compiled some of our favorite patios throughout the Capital City.

1. Perla's Seafood and Oyster Bar

You can’t go wrong sipping rose on this tree-filled patio perched on South Congress where the people watching is just as good as the food.

2. Abel's on the Lake

This lake-side spot is a casual hang-out known for its live music and unique cocktails with over 60 beers on tap.

3. Josephine House

This Clarksville establishment is the perfect destination for a girl’s lunch, birthday celebration or happy hour. We recommend ordering the Jalisco Honeysuckle cocktail paired with the chickpea salad.

4. Yard Bar

Calling all dog- lovers, Yard Bar is the place for you. The outdoor bar is equipped with a fully fenced dog park so you and your furry friend can unwind after a long week.

5. Weather Up

This popular New York based bar sits inside of a trendy yet unassuming house on the East side serving up unique craft cocktails with beach inspired themes.
