The Best Winter Patios in Edmonton
Is there anything more Canadian than hitting up a patio in the middle of winter? In Edmonton, we embrace the season with year-round patios that are perfect for chilling. But never fear! Many of these outdoor dining options are equipped with heaters, blankets, or even fire pits to keep you cozy, which pair perfectly with a warm (Baileys-filled) drink. Some even have tents or domes that provide a little extra shelter from the elements. Clink glasses with your household as the snowflakes fall all around you. There really is something magical about winter in Edmonton!
No matter how you explore this season, be sure to continue practicing physical distancing, frequent hand washing and following the guidelines put in place to keep everyone safe.
Conquer winter with a cold beer hand! The patio at Odd Company Brewing in the Oliver Exchange Building is the perfect place to sip locally crafted brews as you take on the elements. Feeling a little chilly? Get yourself one of their fashionable new tuques to keep you warm. Small batch brews mean there's something new to try every time you visit, so stop in and knock back an inventive (and tasty) pint in the true spirit of the season!
