It’ll be a while before it’s officially patio season again, but that doesn’t mean we can’t hit up some amazing covered patios in the meantime and get cozy. Come rain or shine, these spots will be there to help us weather through whatever comes our way. From bars to cafes to breweries – to every garden patio in between – there’s truly a spot for everyone on this list.

Without further ado, here are 10 cozy covered patios in Vancouver to check out this season.

Knock back a couple of lagers or sours under chilli pepper lights at one of Mount Pleasant’s most iconic breweries. Whether you’re going out on a Friday night or meeting friends after work, the vibes are laid back, retro, and incredible for patio hopping. Speaking of, there’s also Electric Bicycle right next door if you want to make a night of it.

To sweeten the pot during the week, they have Industry Nights every Monday with local DJs spinning and pints for $6.50.

Where: 1-54 East 4th Avenue

As the name suggests, Banter Room is the perfect spot to link up with friends for a chat over some delicious, crafty drinks. Try some brunch specials like the Cornflake Fried Chicken & Waffles or Breakfast Bruschetta, or hit up their daily happy hour. There are also plenty of late-night (post-11 pm!) snacks to fuel your next night out if you’re looking for places that are open late.

Finally, we come to one of our top picks for heated patios in the city by far. Not only did Anh and Chi usher in a new era of contemporary (and vegan) Vietnamese cuisine to the city, but they’ve also set a new standard for how you get to enjoy it – surrounded by beautiful vines, twinkling lights, and a fire pit. Our only advice? Come hungry and do not skip out on the spring rolls.

Well, that’s all for now, Vancouver! Cheers.
