The top 10 patios to chill on in Toronto

Toronto patiosThe top patios in Toronto to chill on aren't all about seeing and being seen. Many clubs in Toronto are built upon the hypothesis that Torontonians need DJ beats, Jagerbombs and MDMA cut with Windex to have a good time. Weekends upon weekends of pretending to know who Die Antwoord is can get exhausting. The only cure? A super chill patio to have some beers and relax.

Here is our list for the top patios to chill on in Toronto.

Ronnie's Local

This Kensington patio is about as close as you can get to chilling on the sidewalk, downing beers and musing about life Wonder Years -style. Ronnie's doesn't serve food, but Kensington is rife with delicious options should the beer/sun/existential crises make you hungry.

Mezzerows PatioMezzrow's

This Parkdale patio is fenced in which creates a cozy vibe despite being on Queen Street. Hidden behind the bar, it feels like you're having a beer at a friend's place but better, because no one's parents are around to ask how to plan to use a liberal arts degree in the "real world."

Sweaty Bettys PatioSweaty Betty's

Sweaty Betty's uses fences and flora to create the feel of a hidden oasis on Ossington. The lush greenery gives it the feel of The Secret Garden but with more beer and a less weird abusive plot-line.

3 Speed Patio3 Speed

3 Speed's patio has a variety of seating options (both private and communal tables) for patrons who want to hang out with a group or alone (um no, drinking alone in public doesn't count as drinking alone). It also has an overhanging roof so you can relax without worrying about the weather.

Aft Kitchen and BarAft Kitchen and Bar

This Riverside patio is the perfect place to catch up with friends while indulging in some pure relaxation food - smoked ribs are the new cuppa.

Bairrada ChurasqueiraBairrada Churasqueira

Bairrada Churasqueira's laid back, super casual patio is ideal for those moments when you want to go grab a beer but don't want to change out of your jorts. There's even a TV on the patio for the sportsfan and introvert alike. The chicken ain't bad, either.

Stout Irish PubStout Irish Pub

This Cabbagetown patio has a great pub feel in the form of a patio. The patio's astroturfed ground is true to the Irish family roots; it appears stiff and unflappable from afar but once you spend a bit of time there, you grow to quietly tolerate it.

Bellwoods Brewery TorontoBellwoods Brewery

While Bellwoods Brewery is often packed, it's a great place for hanging out if you can get a table. This patio has a wide selection of their own beers, so prepare to be impressed (and drunk) while you chillax.

Press Club PatioPress Club

Press Club's patio has a literary vibe, perfect if you're running out of coffee shops to work on your screenplay. Just be careful of hanging out in those plastic chairs for too long - chiropractic care is the first thing to go when you're a starving artist.

Mugshot Tavern patioMugshot Tavern

Mugshot Tavern has two small patios instead of one big one which lends a private, cozy feel. They also have a delicious menu so you could actually hang out all day without resorting to the Double Cohort Diet (drinking nonstop because you're 17 living in a 45 foot room with an exchange student who won't stop playing WOW and your mom's not here so no one can tell you what to do).
