Soak Up the Sun


Austin is blessed with a ton of cool places to hang out, chitchat and imbibe. We all have our go-to spots, but get out there and check out some new or new-to-you establishments! You could fill a summer with patio experiences.


83 Rainey St.

I am ashamed to admit, I had never been to Rainey Street until recently. You gotta go to Icenhauer’s!


1016 E. 6th st.

Shangri-La is another bar with a great patio with the added benefit of the east side King trailer!

The Roaring Fork

10850 Stonelake Blvd.

If you’re closer to south Dallas, their patio is beautiful!

Red’s Porch

3508 South Lamar Blvd.

Red’s Porch is a great sunday Funday spot with a Cajun style brunch, a mess of drink specials and a fabulous view from the upstairs porch!
