Our Favourite Summer Patios in Hamilton, ON

Here in Hamilton, there are so many patios to choose for your next outdoor dining experience – evening or day drinks with friends, a date day for two, or anything and everything in between. 

That’s why we here at Miller Box Co. are sharing our favourite Hamilton patios for fun in the sun all summer long.

Let’s jump right in!

For Events & Brews: Grain & Grit

Speaking of events, have you heard about the amazing events calendar at Grain & Grit?

With plenty of food pop-ups from local eateries and food trucks, Grain & Grit elevates itself above other craft breweries thanks to its focus on community: that means their weekly pop-up list is sure to delight, especially since its patio is 100% dog-friendly, indoor-outdoor, and large enough to fit groups of all sizes!

For Local: Cascata Bistro

Cascata Bistro offers all the traditional flavours of authentic Italian cuisine… with a fresh twist!

Dedicated to nothing short of the freshest, most local ingredients in Hamilton, the Cascata team delivers the epitome of “farm-to-table”. Their rotating daily market menu offers a variety of quality ingredients.

Perfect for either an intimate dinner on their patio or large catering events, Cascata’s patio even hosts lively monthly pairing events– meaning it truly has something for everyone!

For the Fun & Games: Collective Arts Brewery

Another brewery patio that made our list is none other than Collective Arts Brewery!

If games, food trucks, and great beer sound like a good time, then Collective Arts Brewery is the patio for you– especially because of their focus on stunning local art. And if you’re a local artist? They’d want nothing more for you to submit your own for consideration!

For the Ambiance: Martello

Delicious food? Check. Cute string lighting? Check. The coolest mural in Hamilton? Check!

Martello is a beloved local Italian restaurant that does more than serve traditional dinner, brunch, and libations: it also dishes out some of the best ambiance in town!

Located on James North, Martello is typically the first in line to be partaking in their community’s block parties, restaurant crawls, and more. If you want an unforgettable patio experience, we can’t recommend Martello enough!

For the Best Service: Rapscallion & Co.

Okay, we’ve outlined some of the most hip places around town. But what about if you’re looking for your next date spot go-to?

Known for their cozy share plates, fine dining, and intimate courtyard, Rapscallion & Co. is the upscale patio experience you’ve been looking for. (Check out their Beatles Brunch on weekends!)

To take your visit to the next level, be sure to ask the bartender for a crafty cocktail.
