The 6 Best Summer Patios for Dating in Colorado
Nothing says dating in Colorado quite like getting to know someone with a good beer under the summer sun. And thankfully for us, the Rocky Mountain state seems to have an endless supply of new breweries, restaurants and bars popping up. From secluded to super trendy, for whatever mood you re trying to set, here s a cheat sheet of all best patios in Denver, Boulder and beyond for a great LuvByrd date.
Best Patio to Bring Your Pooch Ratio Beerworks
Set in the former Mile High Spirits space, Ratio Beerworks has completely transformed the location so much so that if you were there before, you probably wouldn t even recognize it. With a garage door separating the interior from the exterior, both inside and out have communal tables and so many pups running around you may actually mistake it for the doggy daycare next door.
Killer ambiance, lack of college students and craft cocktails? Sign us up. Better for a nighttime affair, the Bitter Bar has stepped up the classiness of dating in Boulder. With a super chic interior and twinkling lights to set the mood, the Bitter Bar offers one of the longest happy hours in town and some of the best drinks in all of Colorado. Because nothing says love like whiskey.
Most Romantic Patio Domo
Essentially made for couples, Domo s patio is set in a beautifully manicured Japanese garden that s as romantic as it is private. The ideal spot to indulge in classic ramen, udon or sashimi creations, it s been voted Denver s best restaurant patio for 17 consecutive years by Westword. Also on site is a traditional Japanese museum and karate studio so go exploring for a culturally significant and unique date.
Trivia Night at Joyride is a hoot and ideal for testing your date s smarts. Offering board games all other times, it s the perfect place to snag a brew before going for a stroll around Sloan s Lake with your LuvByrd. With six rollup garage doors running the perimeter of the brewery, it s a great spot to grab a drink and some fresh air.
Best See and Be Seen Patio Viewhouse
If you re a trendsetter, there s no place quite like the Viewhouse. With a variety of events running throughout the summer from Yoga on the Green to co-ed volleyball, there s no better place for active singles to mix and mingle.
Best Patio for Games 1Up
If you re into competition (and who isn t), the giant Jenga, skeeball or air hockey at 1Up just may be calling your name. A bar-cade full of pinball and old school arcade games, finding love over Ms. Pac-man just may be in your future. Be sure to check out luvByrd.com, follow us on social media and enjoy the outdoors!!
