The perfect patio for every occasion

For romance: Basi Italia

Italian and Mediterranean food, great wine, twinkle lights, cozy seats … what more could you want? The Victorian Village spot is consistently dubbed one of the city's most romantic spots.

For people watching: Wine Bistro on Lane

Now that the Lane Avenue corridor has its own bustling little community, there's even more to see as you enjoy a glass of Malbec and small plates on the Wine Bistro's umbrella-adorned front patio.

For a big group: Tucci's

Gathering with your book club or hosting a girls' night? Head to Tucci's in downtown Dublin, where the large front patio can suit your group comfortably.

For brews: Seventh Son Brewing Co.

This Italian Village spot is where the super-hip and beer lovers converge. The garage-turned-brewery's inside is cool, but the front and back patios are the place to be when the sun's shining.

For the cool factor: Barcelona

Tapas, cocktails and a gorgeous garden: Head to Barcelona in German Village to soak in the summer with the rest of the city's chicest.
