Best of the City 2012: three perfect post-work patios

Best of the City: perfect post-work patios

South of Temperance

FOR MINGLING South of Temperance 20 Adelaide St. W., 647-477-1444 Whether you’re seeking sunshine or a starter marriage, South of Temperance is the place to schmooze. Go early— on a nice day there’s a lineup by 5:15—and try the Altos Coyote (fancy tequila, agave nectar, fresh grapefruit juice) with a tasty fish taco on the side.

Aria

FOR THE GAME Aria 25 York St., 416-363-2742 The view at Aria’s piazza-style patio is of the ACC’s outdoor screen, so there’s no need to choose between the game and enjoying the weather. Sports fans looking for a beer alternative should try the signature Aria 75 (Beefeater 24, Cointreau, prosecco, lemon juice, simple syrup).

Earls

FOR A PARTY Earls 150 King St. W., 416-916-0227 Earls’ bacchanalian outdoor space is rightly famous for its good-looking wait staff (the Earls Girls). The private booths fill up early and go late, which may be thanks to all those Jäger bombs. More reserved revellers can opt for the refreshing white sangria.
