In the months between late spring and early fall, when unseasonably warm mornings and nights become more frequent, Columbus residents tend to come out of every corner. Whether getting drinks and dining with friends in the Brewery District, or people watching in the Short North, this special time of year is not to be missed. Despite mainstay favorites, there is a stacked list of new restaurant and bar patios for people to enjoy.

Check out 10 new restaurant and bar patios in Columbus, open just in time for summer:

Goody Boy

1144 N. High St.

The Short North Goody Boy reopened to the public in mid-March, after a full interior and exterior makeover that brought the restaurant back to its original mid-century modern aesthetic and classic diner feel.

The new patio may be the most colorful spot on the list, sporting sky blue stools and golden-yellow tables and chairs. And similar to restaurants like Standard Hall, guests are able to order from the patio.

Antiques on High

714 S. High St.

Seventh Son offshoot Antiques on High opened in the fall of 2018, so both of its rooftops are just now being put fully to good use for summer 2019.

The back patio on the first floor features a very Instagrammable Antiques on High emblem as a backdrop, while the four-season, partially closed patio on the second floor features a fireplace and a nice overview of the Brewery District.

Ambrose & Eve

716 S. High St.

Right next door to Antiques on High on South High Street, Ambrose and Eve also opened in the fall of 2018. The quaint restaurant offering Midwestern hospitality will fittingly invite guests onto its front porch to enjoy brunch, dinner and cocktails for the first time this summer.

Brekkie Shack

Grandview Yard, 1060 Yard St.

Located on the south side corner of the Manchester building, breakfast, lunch and brunch spot Brekkie Shack opened its doors in November 2018.

Now that mornings are starting to get warmer, you can start the morning with mimosas and Bloody Marys, or simply a cup of coffee and mid-morning meal right on their patio.

247 King Ave.

Opened in early 2019, Alqueria’s patio will finally come together for summer in the University District. The patio is adorned with flower boxes and a modest, black seating area. And with a recently added brunch menu, Alqueria’s patio is likely to be a popular destination throughout the week and weekend.
