Patio season usually comes in with a bang, but because of the state of the world, it’s creeping in a bit more timid than usual.

But really, that doesn’t matter, because several of the city’s top patios are already open and ready to serve you with updated safety protocols.

Here are nine epic Vancouver patios that are open right now.

The Local Public Eatery is an obvious choice and it’s not hard to see why. Both of this spot’s Vancouver locations, Gastown and Kitsilano, boast a view of a bustling historic downtown square and a beachy landscape, respectively. Undoubtedly two of the best places to head with a bigger (and dare we say, rowdier ) group, Local definitely does patios right.
