Temperatures continue to rise and so does our desire to enjoy the beautiful Colorado weather on a patio with a drink in our hand and some snacks within reach. The Denver South region has no shortage of patios to enjoy this summer.
Whether you’re looking to grab a casual drink after work or hit the town for date night, look no further than these Denver South standouts.

La Sandia

Sunset seekers, this view is for you! The outdoor deck has views of the Rocky Mountain and Front Range that will leave you in awe while you sip a spicy orange margarita. Lounge seating makes this a great spot to spend happy hour with a few friends admiring Colorado’s beauty!

Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant

9535 Park Meadows Drive, Lone Tree, 80124 | 303.799.4999

Can anything top a swirled manberry (mango and strawberry) margarita on a when the temperature soars? Sip on one while enjoying an open air patio adjacent to the bar if you’re looking to soak up some rays, or move just inside the open garage door to view the sunset while getting the best of both worlds. If shade is what you’re looking for on a hot summer’s day, also check out the covered patio adjacent to the dining room, complete with fans and landscaping to help beat the heat!
