The weather feels so very, how do I say it, UN-Louisville these days. No humidity and temperatures in the high 60’s at night make me feel like I’m in California this summer. It’s the perfect time to dine al fresco, and here are six great patios in town for you to try.
I’ll admit that I have never been here, but it has come highly recommended by StyleBlueprint readers. Amici is located in Old Louisville, with a courtyard patio complete with fountains and chimes that create a perfectly relaxing environment in the middle of the city. For more information, click here: www.amicicafelouisville.com.
This patio has the best view in Louisville. Here, you can watch the sunset and the boats roll by on the Ohio River. With their newly renovated outdoor area and menu, this is sure to please everyone. www.cqriverside.com
For those of us who love to watch the hustle and bustle of Bardstown Road, the Seviche patio is for you. This patio is open in the cooler months as well, with lots of heaters outside to warm guests as well as the best seviche/ceviche (however you want to spell it!) in town! www.sevicherestaurant.com
The Village Anchor
There are actually two patios at The Village Anchor in Anchorage. One is upstairs with the Village Anchor and the other is downstairs attached to The Sea Hag. Both are beautiful places to enjoy your sweet potato fries with marshmallow creme and bourbon barbeque dipping sauce. www.villageanchor.com
Napa River Grill
Napa River Grill has a great patio and an even better happy hour with an incredible wine list and a small bites menu. Love sitting out here in cooler months, as well, with the fire pit tables. www.napariverlouisville.com
St. Charles Exchange
St. Charles Exchange’s courtyard patio is a little gem in the middle of the city. The bricked patio and ivy-laden walls make for great surroundings while you enjoy some of the best food and cocktails in town. stcharlesexchange.com
So, which one are we going to first?
