In case you haven’t seen the forecast for this next week…

We thought it would be a good idea to highlight some of the BEST outdoor spots this side of the inlet. Whether you’re looking to crush beers or sip tea, we’ve got the patio for you.

Here are the 10 BEST Patios on the North Shore

1. BEST for Views

Pier 7 because it’s got the best real estate.

2. BEST for People Watching

Green Leaf because it’s right in the mix.

3. BEST for After Hikes

Arm’s Reach because it’s conveniently located at the bottom of Quarry Rock.

4. BEST for Breakfast

Blvd Bistro because it’s the best breakfast going and anyone who says different can _____.

5. BEST for Coffee & Cake

Bjorn Bar Bakery because that roof top is tight.

6. BEST New Patio

Earls West Van because it’s the North Shore and we all love Slurals.

7. BEST at Night

Beach House West Van because those tikki torches are dope.

8. BEST for Large Groups

Tap & Barrel because all those bright red chairs can be moved around and they too busy to stop ya.

Patio season is here! #northvancouver
