The Best Winter Patios in Edmonton

Feb 7, 2022

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. Some even have tents or domes that provide a little extra shelter from the elements. Clink glasses as the snowflakes fall all around you. There really is something magical about winter in Edmonton!

Note, some winter patios may be closed when temperatures dip. We recommend checking in with the individual businesses before heading out on particularly chilly days.

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.

Odd Company

Conquer winter with a cold beer in 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!

DIY Winter Patio!

Turn your backyard, deck or balcony into your own personal winter patio! Nestle in with a blanket, a pair of mittens, a warm cup of hot chocolate (or mulled wine... or heck, have a beer) and order food to-go from one of Edmonton's local restaurants. Pip, Meat, Tres Carnales, Dorinku, Bundok, Farrow, Bianco, Love Pizza and more offer pick-up (pro tip: check Skip the Dishes or Uber Eats for restaurants that don't have their own delivery service). A little snow never stopped you, you are a true winter warrior!
