The Best Outdoor Dining in Denver

In Active Lifestyle Living by Doug Phelps

The weather is getting warmer, which means Denver’s patio dining scene is about to spring to life. Here are some great places to enjoy a meal with a view in Denver.

Avanti Food and Beverage

Avanti is a fresh take on the traditional food court, with seven shipping containers under one roof, each with different culinary options. Enjoy everything from arepas to poke to pizza, along with a beverage. You’ll enjoy the unique bleacher seats and the excellent city views.


Linger is an exciting spot in LoHi, once the Olinger mortuary. Enjoy beautiful rooftop and open air views and inspiring cocktails and small plates.

Ale House At Amato’s

The Ale House boasts not one, but two large patios — one on the ground level and one upstairs. Enjoy causal, bar inspired food and a large selection of Colorado craft beer.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot has multiple outdoor seating options, but the rooftop is particularly enjoyable. This is a great place to hang out before or after a Rockies game, with plenty of game day drink specials. Weekend brunch is also an excellent option.


Larimer Square’s Tamayo has a lovely second floor terrace for outdoor dining and sipping on expertly crafted margaritas and the best guacamole in town. It’s also a great place to take in a stunning Colorado sunset.
