The Best Places to Eat and Drink Outdoors in Philly

Imagine if you had a friend who had just the best rooftop deck in the entire city. And also a fridge full of great beer. And also was a very talented chef. Yeah, that’s what it’s like hanging out upstairs at Standard Tap. 901 North 2nd Street

Okay, so everyone already knows how good Jerry’s is, right? But I’m telling you, it’s even better when the sun is out and you can get a seat in the narrow little patio beside the place. Drinking gin and tonics under the umbrellas is a fine way to kill a Saturday afternoon. 129 West Laurel Street

If you’re rolling with a big crew in Kensington, KQ has a surprisingly large outdoor courtyard out back with long tables perfect for parties looking for excellent pastas, drinks and charcuterie. 1310 Frankford Avenue

...a fire escape rising in the background) gentled a bit with green and growing things. 1253 North Front Street

Barbecue is made for eating outside. And do you know what Fette Sau cooks? Some pretty good barbecue (they pour a lot of bourbon whiskey, too). 1208 Frankford Avenue

...childish S.O.B. that I am, I love the place for exactly those reasons. 1210 Frankford Avenue

An excellent backyard patio for this Fishtown dive bar: The drinks are cheap, there’s always a place to grab a smoke, and if you like Greek food served in a pool hall… Well, that’s weird. But Kosta’s is probably your dream bar. 15 West Girard Avenue

This article has 35 other Philadelphia locations (Show)

...tables under the big umbrellas are some of the most sought-after seats in town. 227 South 18th Street

The little slice of sunshine next to ASB, with its patio furniture and beer in cans, perfectly captures the backyard party feel that’s the holy grail of so many hip Philly restaurateurs. 1800 Federal Street

...to at least once, just to see for yourself what all the fuss is about. 800 Mifflin Street

...just be friends drinking out in the grass. But it’s always a good time. 1927 East Passyunk Avenue

...one of the most zombie-proof restaurants in the city. So there’s that, too. 1801 Chestnut Street

...Hairy Buffalos help, the latter being a literal cooler full of liquor and fruit juice. 102 South 13th Street

...graffiti (hence the name), and serves the same Asian fusion cuisine and cocktails as Sampan. 124 South 13th Street

Marcie Turney and Val Safran’s version of a neighborhood red gravy joint has a beautiful patio hung with greenery and twinkle lights which, on the best nights, feels more than a little bit magic. 1234 Locust Street

...is one of the most stunning places in the entire city to eat and drink. 208 South 13th Street

...lovely (of course), oddly-shaped and a great place to hide out in the neighborhood. 3420 Sansom Street

The food is great, the vibe is chill, and the outdoor seating overlooks Clark Park and the neighborhood that rises above it. It’s the perfect addition to an already excellent neighborhood joint. 4301 Baltimore Avenue

So many of the other outdoor spaces in Philly are tiny, tucked away, half-hidden. But not here. City Tap House has a big outdoor space they use for seating on sunny days and warm nights, and to host events all throughout the summer. 3925 Walnut Street

...truly a multi-cultural wonder. And getting to eat it outside? That’s even better. 4540 Baltimore Avenue

...name and don’t understand how this drink could possibly be good, but it is. 433 Chestnut Street

...top floor, a kind of covered patio-deck that looks out over the intersection of 2nd and Market. There are potted trees and a good beer list, and the whole thing just feels...

...way that’s surprising even though it looks like so many other recent rooftop openings. 200 Market Street

Hey, did you know that Nick Elmi’s Royal Boucherie has a secret upstairs deck? Well, I guess it isn’t so secret anymore… 52 South 2nd Street

Not just a patio, but a formal garden, right in the middle of the city. This outdoor space is filled with seasonal flowers and can seat 120 people, and yet it remains one of Philly’s half-hidden secrets, tucked away behind the walls of the Morris House. 231 South 8th Street

...mousse after midnight is one of the things that makes living in the neighborhood worthwhile. 701 South 4th Street

Twinkle lights, climbing plants, raw wood — the garden patio at Talula’s Garden may be some of the most beautiful, photogenic square footage in the entire city. So isn’t it nice that the food coming from the kitchen is also some of the best? 210 West Washington Square

There aren’t a lot of neighborhood bars around that serve breakfast foods. But Pete’s does, along with a fine selection of craft and imported beer. Take it all outside and make a summer night (or morning) of it. 900 South Front Street

Everyone already loves Martha for its hoagie-heavy menu, its locally-focused cocktails, sour beers, and cheese and charcuterie plates. Know what makes all that better? Eating and drinking outside in their fenced-in patio with built-in bocce court. 2113 East York Street

Medusa was recently taken over by the team behind Green Eggs Cafe. And now that the weather has warmed up, they’ll be opening their outdoor deck for those looking to eat some pizza in the sun. 2327 Gaul Street

...a drink and some grub with a mob of friends when the sun is out. 1727 North Front Street

...and be seen outside at Rouge, eating egg white omelets and oysters with champagne mignonette. 205 South 18th Street

...to enjoy the simple, refined plates of pickled vegetables, spaghetti with meatballs or grilled branzino. 2201 Spruce Street

...that are nice for catching some rays and having an early dinner in the sun. 1946 Lombard Street

All outdoor seats in Rittenhouse Square are made for people-watching. But the view from Tequila’s patio comes with vaquero steaks, mole, margaritas and bacon-wrapped, deep-fried shrimp. So that’s even better. 1602 Locust Street

...and sit down for a meal from one of the best chefs in the city. 1521 Spruce Street

Tacos in the sun. What else do I need to say? Sure, you’re basically eating in an alley. But it’s a nice alley, okay? So I’ll say it again: Tacos in the sun. 2321 Fairmount Avenue

...nice place to sit and relax with a plate of truffle fries and farmhouse flatbreads. 2028 Fairmount Avenue

Best happy hour patio on the Avenue, hands down. They’ve got umbrellas for when the sun is out, lights strung up for when it goes down, and flights of tequila and wet burritos to smooth the transition between the two. 1651 East Passyunk Avenue

It is a scientific fact that drinking tequila in the sun makes you a better, happier and more friendly person. And there’s no better place on the Avenue to knock back a couple shots of cactus juice (and chase them with some tacos) than Pistola’s. 1934 East Passyunk Avenue

Tapas taste better when they’re eaten outside. That’s just science. A cool breeze, a hot day, a glass of wine and a couple plates of albondigas and croquetas, I’m just not sure that things get any better than that. 1709 East Passyunk Avenue

...the crowd and the time, give Laurel a call and see what nights are available. 1617 East Passyunk Avenue

    43 Philly Restaurants and Bars With Great Outdoor Seating
    The weather is beautiful. What are you doing inside? It's been a long time coming. There have already been a couple of false starts. But with it now actually being May and with at least a few days of warm weather in a row promised to us, we're ready to call it.
