Afternoon rain showers aside, warm weather is on the rise, the sleeves are getting shorter, pants are turning into shorts and dresses are lightweight and bright. With patio season finally here, Denver patrons are ready to explore the new spots to lounge on after a long day (or week) of work.

The Mile High City is at no loss for epic patio spots but that's not to say we aren't open to welcoming a few more. With the dining scene continuing to grow, it's to be expected that there would be a few noteworthy newcomers to the must-go patio scene. From southern inspired cocktails with spectacular city views to the burger joint with pavement side seating this list covers just about everything you'd need from an outdoor dining experience.

If you can't get enough of the outdoor drinking, be sure to check out our guide to the rooftop patios in Denver and beyond.

After opening its doors in March it's evident that this LoHi southern food hub is quickly becoming a fried chicken go-to. The ever popular buckets on buckets (champagne and chicken) now will have an added perk: the rooftop patio. You'll have the option of wildly enjoying your weekend brunch with a side of the Mile High skyline.

This hot Cherry Creek restaurant has continued to impress the neighborhood with its fun menu and impeccable service. The small but mighty patio is a great spot for people watching and enjoying the ultimate chicken parmigiana for two alongside a bottle of wine.
