The rain won’t get us down this week. We’re dreaming of cold brews, delicious food and weeknight hangouts on our favorite neighborhood patios. That’s why we’ve teamed up with four of STL’s top spots to hit this weekend. All you have to do is call your friends.

Patios and happy hours go hand-in-hand, that’s why Bishop’s Post in Chesterfield offers happy hour specials Monday through Friday from 4-7pm. Enjoy live music on the gorgeous patio on Thursday evenings and pair the entertainment with half-priced bottles of wine $80 and under. When the weekend rolls around, dine al fresco while enjoying the all-new brunch every Sunday from 10am-3pm.

The purple martin fox park patio

The welcoming, knowledgeable and friendly staff at The Purple Martin will ensure your experience is top-notch. We love stopping by their colorful and cheerful patio for a comfortable evening in Fox Park. The festive terrace offers a bird’s eye view of the native plantings, sounds of a fun water feature and view of the playground across the street for families to play in. Four-legged friends are also welcome; make it a pooch party! This dog-friendly patio provides fresh water bowls.

BARcelona Tapas in Clayton was already equipped with a festive patio, but now you have the option of also taking advantage of the new public parklet located directly in front of the restaurant. BARcelona offers traditional and authentic tapas for lunch and dinner, seven days a week. And with a bar that stays open late nightly, it’s the perfect place to bring a group or spend a date night. Drop in on Wednesday evenings for fun, live music, sangria and some of the best tapas Clayton has to offer.
