Rest of the Best 2014: Houston's Top 10 Patios
4. Brooklyn Athletic Club

S'mores over a fire pit in the winter, croquet in the summer, and always a truck serving as a bar with cold beer and tasty cocktails. These are just a few of the reasons why Brooklyn Athletic Club has one of the best outdoor dining spaces in town. During nice weather, every bocce court on the patio will be taken, and young drinkers and families alike will unite in cheering on a favorite competitor. In cooler weather, fire pits and heaters make the space warm and cozy and ideal for roasting marshmallows or sharing an intimate meal by the fire.
3. Brenner's on the Bayou

Amid the concrete and asphalt of Houston, it can be difficult to remember that we've got our very own, sometimes lovely, body of water snaking through the city: Buffalo Bayou. And what better place to enjoy it than at Brenner's on the Bayou, which affords diners a view of a particularly lush area of the bayou? It's surrounded by greenery and tropical flowers, and the upstairs Blue Bar is furnished with inviting white sofas and warm fire pits, perfect for whiling away a relaxing evening.
