The best sunshiney spots to sit back, relax, and enjoy summertime

There is nothing quite like a Chicago patio. We spend months counting down to summer during those eons of wintertime chill, and from the moment that bars and restaurants start opening their windows and bringing out the patio furniture…Chicagoans are pumped. So, we’re keeping it simple and making it easy on you! Here are our Top 10 Patios for July that will bring good food, good atmosphere, and the best of Chicago summer vibes…

  • Tallboy Taco {325 West Huron Street, Chicago; 312.488.4917}: Nestled inside the colors and excitement of Nacional 27 is this taco joint that has seriously delicious offerings, like the Cowboy 12HR Smoked Brisket Taco. Perfect for a group gathering!
  • Aba {302 North Green Street 3rd floor, Chicago; 773.645.1400}: If you like hitting up the latest and greatest of Chicago’s spots, this is your patio destination.
