Warmer weather is finally here in Western New York and when we are not dodging the rain and the possible late April snow shower, this is the best time of year to get with your friends or family and grab a drink and food outside.

We only get a couple of months to enjoy the nice weather so you don't want to waste it inside. So now is the time to find a cool patio bar near you.


So what makes a great patio bar?

There are a couple of things that make for a great patio bar. First, you need to have plenty of space, access to people watch, and cover from the sun and/or rain.


There is a bonus if the patio bar allows dogs to be part of the fun as well. Of course, the bar has to have good food and drinks, and drink specials won't hurt either.
