The high is 80 degrees today, and yes it’s March 3rd. I’m loving every second of this (and to my boss, if I’m MIA this afternoon it’s because I’m working by my pool). So, if you’re anything like me this weather has you dying to be outside. I’m actually meeting a friend for dinner and drinks tonight and I will be going somewhere that I can sit outside. But who has the best outdoor patios in Charlotte? I’m not quite sure I’m qualified to answer that (though I’ll happily do a study and try them all out). But I can tell you some of my favorites. Here are 15 of the ones, in a variety of neighborhoods, on my list to visit this spring and summer.

Some of these are breweries (ok a lot are), some have food and drinks, others are known for their wine, but all have one thing in common. Their outdoor spaces. Whether it’s a rooftop, table service, or some picnic tables you can enjoy the outdoors and gorgeous views! Know of a patio I missed? Please let me know I’d love to check it out as well.
