Summer is here and it’s time to sit back, relax and enjoy a drink out in the sun. Breakfast, lunch, happy hour or dinner, there is a perfect patio for any occasion. We have compiled a list of our top ten favorite patios in Breckenridge. Take a look and let us know if we missed your favorite.
Modis: At first glance, you may not even know that Modis has a rooftop patio. Located on top of the Modis building you will find sunshine and great views of Main Street. Not only does Modis have two happy hours a day, but their cocktail selections are something of a masterpiece. From El Diablo (a mix of tequila, lime juice, blackberry liqueur and house ginger beer) to the Lion’s Tail (a mix of bourbon, allspice liqueur, lime juice, simple syrup and Angostura bitters) there is something for everyone.
Insider Tip: Pho-Quitos. Order them. We promise you will not be disappointed.
If you are looking to treat yourself to some amazing cuisine, Relish is for you. Their name truly means what it stands for, “something savory or appetizing to a meal.” With happy hour from 4-6 daily, take advantage of the two for $10 deal. Pick and drink and an app, all for just $10. The only danger with this deal is that you will want to stay for dinner.
Insider Tip: Make a reservation if you are going for dinner. It is a smaller space and you won’t want to miss out.
Mother Loaded Tavern:
If you are looking for house infused liquors, updated comfort food and live music this is your place. Every Sunday the Mother Loaded Tavern (MLT) hosts a porch party that is anything but boring. You and Fido can also swing by daily for the happy hour specials and treat yourself to a one-of-a-kind drink.
Insider Tip: Try a cocktail with one of their many homemade infused liquors. The spicy cilantro-lime tequila is a great summer pick. Also order some mac & cheese egg rolls. Trust us.
Like strong margaritas? Like amazing views of the ski resort? Like over-the-top bloody mary’s? If you answered yes, then Angle’s Hallow is the deck for you. Located off Ridge Street, this hidden gem is the perfect place to soak in the views and sun. They aren’t shy with their drink pours, so bring a crowd and be ready for a good time.
Insider Tip: Try all the salsas and sauces. They are freshly made and always changing.
Start your day off right by drinking your coffee and eating a pastry by the river. The Crown is a perfect combination of a coffee shop and bar, with something for everyone.
