Dust off your day drinking shoes. Warmer weather has arrived which means it’s perfectly acceptable to drink before happy hour rolls around.


For some, day drinking means dusting off the lawn chairs and bringing the iPod outside. For others, it’s all about hitting up the roofdeck bars. Here’s a list of some of our roofdeck/patio favorites:




The Standard Biergarten

Wash down their popular pretzel with a refreshing brew at this picnic table filled hot spot.





A popular destination to enjoy cocktails and view the beautiful Boston harbor.





A fancier option but worth the extra expense.




39 Degrees

The stunning mountain view gives the poolside hunnies some competition.





Lahaina Beach House (do they really not have a website?)

A casual spot equipped with pitchers and a jukebox. Be sure to stick around for an amazing view of the sunset.



Curious as to your favorite day drinking spot. Be sure to share.

    My favorite patio bar in the Boston area is Charlie’s Kitchen in Harvard Square (Cambridge). They have a beer garden in the back, and the bar itself even has an awning you so can still sit outside on a hot rainy day and stay dry. Sometimes locals bring their dogs, and the whole atmosphere has a very neighborhood, community feel.

    In Seattle, check out Ray’s Boathouse at Shillshole for a great waterview deck and views of the Olympics at sunset — usually crowded though and can be pretty touristy. Still, can’t beat the views. If you’re into the urban feel, and especially if you like soccer, try the George & Dragon Pub in the Fremont neighborhood. Don’t look for fancy here, the deck is built out over the parking lot with a view of the street, but Fremont’s great for people-watching, the deck catches sun almost all day (a key here benefit in Seattle!), and it’s got a great, English-pub-vibe going for it. Finally, try either of the two BluWater Bistro locations for good neighborhood feel and a fun drinking atmosphere. Don’t expect great food, but ambience, service, and trendy people-watching are fun — and the Leschi location has pool.
