Tuco & Blondie
Looking for a bright and spunky spot to take in the summer sunshine? Head to Southport Corridor and grab a seat on Tuco & Blondie’s blue-and-yellow patio and indulge on margaritas until your heart’s content. Nosh on taco platters, fajitas, and make sure to save room for the Mexifundae – a vanilla ice cream sundae drizzled in chocolate and served in a crispy churro bowl.
Colorful and trendy are keywords when describing Bar Cargo’s fantastic patio. Right in the heart of River North, this hip and trendy sports bar is perfect for authentic Roman-style pizza and Italian. We aren’t kidding when we say authentic either – Bar Cargo ships their custom flour blend from Rome and cooks it in a stone oven, also imported from Rome.
Park & Field
Head west to Logan Square to bask in the epic patio that makes up Park & Field. From firepits to bocce ball, there is no shortage of things to do at this bar and restaurant. Grab a frosé from the outdoor bar (it’s an old-school camper!) and bite into the Pork Bahn Mi or the Nashville Hot Fried Chicken Sandwich.
Testimonial of Ramon Gomez, Chef Concierge, The Gwen
“Piccolo Sogno has one of the prettiest outdoor patios in the city. It’s like dining in the Garden of Eden; it places you in a tranquil garden atmosphere surrounded by Chicago’s urban landscape. Besides being a fantastic setting, they have traditional Italian cuisine presented to perfection.”
