Best covered and heated patios in Edmonton

Nov 11 2021, 12:42 am

Some of our favourite Edmonton summer patios are thankfully still hanging around, even as the colder months approach. 

Many of these patios have heaters to keep us warm so that we can continue to enjoy outdoor dining. Some are even covered, making them completely winterized.

Here are 10 excellent covered and heated patios in Edmonton to seek out for anyone looking to dine al fresco no matter what season it is.

Boxer


Offering seasonal fare and craft cocktails, across the street from the Old Strathcona Farmers Market is Boxer Albertan Kitchen & Bar.

They do have a spectacular rooftop bar available for semi-private event bookings, but they also have a one-of-a-kind experience in the winter. Boxer has winter domes available to reserve for comfortably drinking and dining in a winter wonderland.

Baijiu, the outrageously popular cocktail bar located in the heart of Edmonton, also has a semi-secret, not-so-secret patio in the back. Surrounded by the exposed brick of the building, this patio has an urban meets tropical vibe with tables covered by umbrellas and fireplaces to keep you warm.

If all of this doesn’t keep you warm, the downtown views, ambitious food menu, and original cocktails will.

A growing trend in Edmonton seems to be finding ways to dine outdoors in the middle of winter. Riverside Bistro has a winter patio unlike any other, with panoramic views overlooking the river valley, all from an igloo.

It’s not a traditional igloo, but a frosty winter dome that keeps you cozy and warm with heating and a warm blanket. It’s the perfect romantic winter evening, all in the Courtyard by Marriott Downtown.

The large umbrellas at Meat protect the patio so well it’s an entirely covered outdoor space. The bright and contemporary smokehouse serves up incredible BBQ and the patio here is a great place to enjoy it.

Located in the heart of Old Strathcona, the people watching at Meat is pretty much as good as it gets.
