You guys, the greatest season of all is finally here.

And no, I’m not talking about baseball for you sports fans.

I’ve got a few personal favorites, plus I know some other popular spots that I thought I’d share.


Located in the heart of Beaverdale, this rooftop patio boasts great scenery of the neighborhood along with a full upstairs bar.

Eatery A

I haven’t been to this restaurant yet, but it is at the top of my list of new places to try, and I hear they have a stellar patio.


I can’t get enough of the view of the Des Moines skyline while enjoying brunch. Patio perfection.

The Rooftop

Located above The House of Bricks, this 150-seat patio offers great views of the East Village. Enjoy a drink before taking in a show.
