The best time of year is here: patio season! For a few short weeks, Atlanta and its beloved surrounding suburbs like Roswell and Woodstock slip into spring. During this time, mornings are cool, days are warm, and evenings are perfectly pleasant. Since spring in the South can be fleeting, make this most of it by enjoying your favorite bites and beverages on area patios. Of course, patios are great for summer, too which is why we’ve rounded-up our list of the best patios in our area. From wine purveyors to margarita mixers, these are our favorite spots for spring and summer sipping.

Vin 25

Whether you’re in the mood for craft cocktails or crisp rosés, Vin 25’s patio makes a beautiful backdrop for imbibing. Quaint bistro tables are scattered throughout a tree-canopied courtyard with garden lights suspended above. Close your eyes, and you might even feel transported to wine country making Vin 25’s patio an ideal spot for a romantic evening.

Pure Taqueria

For an elevated experience, literally, head to Pure Taqueria. Our only rooftop patio on our list, Pure Taqueria is the place for casual bites and of course, plentiful margaritas. We love Pure’s food and their vibe. Meet friends after work on a Friday to kick-off your weekend in style.

The Mill Kitchen & Bar  

If we’re being honest, The Mill Kitchen and Bar is one of our favorite spots year-round. Afterall, who can deny sipping wine by a fireplace even in the dead of winter? But their patio really comes alive each spring and summer. Visit The Mill Kitchen and Bar’s sizable patio for a stylish Sunday brunch (complete with bottomless mimosas).

Big Ketch

While there are two locations of seafood extraordinaire, Big Ketch, Roswell’s happens to be our favorite. Shhh…don’t tell our friends in Buckhead. The patio sits close enough to Canton Street for prime people watching while being far enough away for intimate dining privacy. It’s truly the best of both worlds!

C&S Chowder House

Pet friendly with plenty of pours? Chester and Walter (and their moms) give C&S Chowder House their stamps of approval. Don’t miss the restaurant’s happy hour seven days a week which offers $1 oysters along with other food and drink specials. Plan to peek inside, too. The decor is stunning!

Taqueria Tsunami

Plush couches in quaint groupings make Taqueria Tsunami a must-visit for larger parties. Libations include a slew of margaritas and specialty cocktails, and the restaurant’s fun Latin-Asian fusion appetizers are perfect for sharing.

Chipper’s Club

For those seeking live music, look no further than Chipper’s Club. The restaurant’s deck hosts live music every weekend. Their canopy covered patio is shaded spring and summer which means you can sip without sweating, and during humid Atlanta days, there’s nothing better than that!
