Name a more ideal summer evening than at a show on a patio, I dare you! (@pushandpour / Instagram)

It’s time for some breezy, warm-but-not-too-warm, people-watching patio sessions. Here are some of the City Cast Boise recommendations for the best patios, with a few extras:

🍷 Garden City - Telaya for some wine, Barbarian for beer, Yardarm for both, Push & Pour for both and also coffee, and Cafe Luciano’s for a view of the river and Greenbelt. (Shoutout to Lara Disney on Twitter for these GC recommendations).

🌳 Hyde Park - 13th Street Pub, Parilla Grill, and coming soon, a new Lost Grove location at the old Sun Ray Cafe.

🍴 8th Street & Downtown - these are your good people-watching options: Dawson Taylor, Fork, Owyhee Tavern.

🏈 For a more enclosed backyard vibe, the End Zone is a good sporty option. Payette also feels a little enclosed, but with Greenbelt access.

🍻 It seems like everyone and their dog (literally) goes to this one, but the Push & Pour, STIL, and Wyld Child patio on Latah will immediately get you in the summer mood.

Have a favorite patio that isn’t listed here? Send it my way!
