Patio season is upon us

Just the suggestion of temperatures dropping has us excited for our favorite outdoor activity… patio season.  We’ve put together a list of our top drop-off spots across the city that are the perfect destinations to get your al fresco fix.  So whether you are on the hunt for the perfect patio to watch the game or are looking for a great after-work happy hour, Alto will be there to take you to your next outdoor adventure.

Hudson House // Addison & Park Cities

A hot spot in both the Addison and Park Cities neighborhoods, Hudson House has created a following due to their generous happy hours which include half-off martinis, oysters, and cheeseburgers from 4:00 - 6:00 pm daily. However it is the Addison location that gets the extra bonus points for providing a patio for you to enjoy it all with the wind in your hair.  

Sassetta // Design District

This Design District gem takes a modern approach to your favorite Italian classics. Hello perfectly crispy, crusty pizzas! Grab a spot on the chic patio to drink, dine or even catch a game on Sassetta’s giant projector screens that they share with neighbor, Wheelhouse.

Sixty Vines // Plano & Uptown

Welcome to your newest pinot and pasta paradise. The covered patios at these Plano and Uptown mainstays are the perfect spot for shared plates and wine pairings. Boasting a wall (!) of wines on tap, including their own “Vine Hugger” brand, Sixty Vines is the place to sip and savor your time in great outdoors.

Smoky Rose // East Dallas

Located across the street from the Dallas Arboretum, this chef-driven smokehouse aptly named the Smoky Rose provides the perfect place for family fun. The bar and restaurant’s expansive patio has a little bit of something for everyone from outdoor lounges and luxurious fire pits to large-screen TVs and game areas for the kiddos. 

Paradiso // Bishop Arts

Paradiso is a new European-focused restaurant in the Bishop Arts neighborhood that shares a stunning central outdoor space with additional newcomers, The Botanist, Good Companions and Tejas. Make sure to peep your head inside the restaurant as well to sample their mezze service via a rolling bar cart.
