Spring is here, and many Columbus bars and restaurants are ramping up their outdoor dining experience. We’re here to highlight a patio you can enjoy in four of the CBUS suburbs.


If you’re in downtown Powell, check out Huli Huli Tiki Lounge at 26 W. Olentangy St. for an escape from Ohio into a tropical atmosphere. The lounge’s outdoor bar and patio emulates a beachy experience, with exotic cocktails and menu items to match.

Land-Grant Brewing Company at 424 W. Town Street is one of the most popular Franklinton patios, primarily because of its massive beer garden. You can bring your dogs to the beer garden, enjoy outdoor games like cornhole + pop-a-shot basketball, and eat from food trucks like Ray Ray’s and Two Fatt Indians.


VASO at 6540 Riverside Dr. transitions its outdoor igloos to outdoor cabanas for the summer. You can book the private cabana and take in the rooftop views of Dublin with comfortable couches, a TV, fully stocked mini-fridge, and a server.


Milestone 229 at 229 Civic Center Dr. has one of the most scenic patios in Columbus. In the heart of downtown, you can enjoy views of the skyline, views of the Scioto Mile + bridge, and sit alongside extravagant fountains that light up at night.
