Who knew Houston could look so remote and lovely?
6. The Tasting Room at King's Harbor
The tagline for The Tasting Room is "A comfortable place to get serious about wine." Emphasis on comfortable. The Kingwood location overlooks King's Harbor, a waterfront village with beautiful views of Lake Houston. Sip some bubbly while you watch the sun set over the lake, or partake in a wine class out on the patio and try to pay attention to the instructor instead of the wildlife and recreation out on the lake.

Spice up your life with some tapas on Batanga's quaint patio.
5. Batanga
Arguably the prettiest outdoor dining space Downtown, Batanga's back patio can make you forget you're in a bustling urban area, and instead think you're tucked into a tapas restaurant in Spain. The 3,600-square-foot space is lit with string lights and dotted with red umbrellas for a charming atmosphere during the day and a more sultry, romantic vibe at night.

The story continues on the next page.

I wish there was a way to view this whole list on one page.. Or is there one, and I'm just missing it?

These are good but I like the quaint, honeysuckle-scented goodness of Dolce Vita's patio.


And then there is the amazing Rainbow Lodge patio overlooking the gardens

@m2m310  Haha I do love that patio, but this list is all restaurants or bar/restaurants. West Alabama doesn't serve food of its own.
