It's Patio Season!

Tag: Blog

One of the luckiest things about living in Arizona is our beautiful weather during the fall, winter, and spring months.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, the City of Tempe has allowed our downtown Tempe restaurants to expand their outdoor seating. Our businesses have been hard at work, making it easier for guests to sip or dine in downtown Tempe safely and responsibly.  

Many of our neighborhood restaurants have permanent patios, but many of them have expanded their patios to allow for better social distancing or have established new outdoor seating that they didn’t have before. As we’ve said before, it is more important than ever to help support our small and local businesses.

Here is a list of downtown Tempe businesses with expanded and established patio seating:
