Treatin’ yourself to some rays and booze never felt so good on these patios.
Whether you finished up a long week of work or you’re just trying to celebrate another day in paradise, here’s five patios you gotta check out while the weather is warm.
Juniper • 580 N Fourth St.
Drink specials abound, including $3 off wine glasses, $5 crafts, $5 wells, a $6 daily craft cocktail and even $3 Bud Lights. However, there are no food specials. To quote Springfield bartender Moe Szyslak, “The ambiance doesn’t pay for itself.”
Cosecha Cocina • 987 N Fourth St.
From 4-6 p.m. weekdays, you can get $2 drafts of Pacifico and Negro Modelo, $5 red and white wines as well as $5 specialty margaritas and Old Fashioneds or a $10 Boilermaker for two. Did I mention the $3 tacos?
Milestone 229 • 229 Civic Center Dr.
Running from 4-6 p.m. weekdays, it includes $4 beers, $5 craft cocktails and $6 pizzas, mac and cheese and hummus, and the best views in the city.
Olde Towne Tavern • 889 Oak St.
The Tavern has an intimate and charming patio at the back of the building with happy hour running 4-7 p.m. Monday through Friday. Half-off drafts, $3 wells and $1 off glasses of wine and sangria with $1.25 pretzels and $5 veggie nacho appetizer specials make this patio happy hour tough to beat.
Grandview Café • 1455 W Third Ave.
Active Monday through Friday from 2-6, this happy hour offers $2 off any $6 beer, $1 off any $4 beer and half-off local and select spirits as well as $2 wine pours. Pizzas are $10 as well—as long as you’re at the bar.
