This summer cool off under the misters with an ice cold drink at some of the Valley’s trendiest patio locations. EventSpark makes it easier to discover the perfect patio by partnering with the best places to chill out.
Starting in Tempe, the newest hot spot is Tempe’s Front Porch, owned and operated by Monti’s La Casa Vieja. Monti’s is one of the oldest establishments in the Mill Avenue District, and they decided to transform their patio into a separate restaurant concept. Expect an innovative menu, daily drink specials and attractive atmosphere. Stop by and sip on one of their handmade cocktails or local craft beers and see for yourself.
Next stop is Phoenix’s Arcadia neighborhood, home to the most hip, locally owned and farm-fresh restaurants within all of Phoenix. O.H.S.O Eatery + nanoBrewery is located minutes away for Old Town Scottsdale offering some great specials along with their own craft beers. The back patio is great hangout for any summer night with gorgeous views of Camelback mountain, a dog friendly patio and enjoyable atmosphere created by the lighting strung overhead. O.H.S.O. offers a variety of unique dining options, from $5 late-night eats to weekend beer brunches. Don’t miss it.
Also located in Arcadia is The Vig, an upscale neighborhood tavern that has been a part of the community for five years. Their incomparable patio has a cool, comfortable ambiance with a central fireplace, designated area for local musicians to play and a bocce ball court.
