1. Forest Room 5

Haven’t gotten to go camping as much as planned, or would like to skip the whole “sleeping outside” thing altogether? Get your fill of a truly Colorado setting without the trek to the mountains at Forest Room 5. The patio at Forest Room 5 transports you to a mountainside: fire pit, trees and all. Indulge in $5 specialty cocktails while awaiting the sunset in your own special nook of the calming outdoor area. Special bonus: you can bring your pup along for the fun! (Image via Woof In Boots)



2. Izakaya Den

Sushi fans, rejoice! Izakaya Den has daily happy hour specials on sushi, wine, sake, beer, and spirits. That means the ultimate happy hour combo is up to you! Happy hour specials aside, the patio area alone is worth experiencing. Its nature-inspired walls made of stone and lush plants combined with the perfect lighting ambiance makes you feel as if you’re making a quick trip to Asia for the evening. The Japanese inspired design even won Izakaya Den the American Architecture Award. (Image via: IZakaya Den)


3. Blue Bonnet

Speaking of traveling to a new place for the evening, Blue Bonnet is the place to go if you’re longing for that trip to Mexico you had last year. Their patio is lined with adobe walls and has plenty of shade so you can comfortably sip your top-notch margaritas. Blue Bonnet is one of the oldest family-owned and operated restaurants in Denver, and the authenticity shows through its delicious meals, margs, and gorgeous decor.

5. Postino Wine Cafe 

LoHi is the perfect area to patio hunt, particularly because it hosts treasures like Postino Wine Cafe. Postino’s rooftop patio somehow perfectly balances romance and luxury with comfort, making it perfect for date night.  Sit at a table or get cozy on their couches while you choose from a delicious array of wine and apps. Just as their stickers say: “Drinking wine at lunch is not a crime,” which is why they do happy hours all day. Stop in between 11 and 5 every day for $5 wine by the glass, or between 8 and 11 when you’re in the mood for some full bottle specials. (Image via Brunch Run)
