In Michigan we cherish those fine weather days when we can get outdoors and feel the sun on our backs while a calm breeze keeps us cool. When those days (and nights!) arrive there’s nothing better than heading to our favorite watering hole to enjoy delicious food and drinks outdoors. From patios full of colorful flowers and twinkling lights to beer gardens with live music, Greater Lansing’s restaurant scene offers dozens of outdoor seating options. And when the weather turns chilly – many of the outdoor seating locations offer heaters to keep you toasty warm.
Some of our favorites include:
- Lansing Brewing Co. – offers a large patio with Astro turf, firepit, cornhole games and great craft beer! It’s the perfect location to grab a burger before a Lansing Lugnuts game.
- One North Kitchen – Fabulous food, inventive drinks and live music. What could be better?
- The English Inn – looking for a romantic escape from the ordinary? Check out their conservatories, which look like mini green houses, that overlook the expansive grounds. The fine dining experience paired with an extensive wine list makes this a must for any special occasion!
