Winnipeg Patios

Winnipeg Patios (Eastern Exchange District for now!)

May 5: Corrientes patio is open!

APRIL 29 2020 UPDATE: May the fourth be with you! The Province of Manitoba has announced a “Phased Approach to Restoring Services“. Restaurant patios are identified as a non-essential (??) service that will be allowed to reopen (with restrictions). The City of Winnipeg is streamlining the license application process. I will guess that a few will try and open. I have reached out to them and will update this site as I find out! So far it appears that Nonsuch won’t be open. And to the patio operators, here are some resources on preparing to reopen and sanitizing your payment equipment, including a handy poster for staff reference.

And if no handy patios open, the good folks at BeerCrank have compiled alist of beer delivery options.

April 20 2020: Its spring 2020. Will we be allowed to sit on a patio this summer? The takeout service at Nonsuch is up and running still. If i get a charcuterie and eat it in Juba park, does that count as a patio????

Cruising down the bike path along Waterfront Drive can be thirsty work.
Prior to 2015 your thirst could not easily have been quenched on a nearby patio. All the good patios were on the other side of Main Street, a couple blocks away!
But now the Exchange District East of Main area has gone from a couple patios to about a dozen great patios. Several feature local craft beers, some have a rooftop patio, and some are breweries themselves.

I sure I am missing some patios in the area. Please leave a comment to let me know which of your favourite patios are missing!

    Joe and Lily’s at Lily and Pacific has seating outside. Great spot for a great cup of coffee, tea or hot chocolate. It should be mentioned…
