Somehow, fall is upon us again in the City of Roses. 2021 was in many ways an even stranger year than 2020, but if one thing remained constant it was that outdoor dining was crucial to the city. Thankfully, the newly erected plazas, patios, and street-side dining options look like they’ll be here to stay, at least through spring 2022.
For this map we’ve selected some of Portland’s best bar patios, ones that create a safe and comfortable environment without building an outside area that is essentially indoors; full tents with little circulation are out. And while hundreds of bars have modest but serviceable outside dining with street and sidewalk licenses, these are the places that are able to set up something a little more robust and more suitable for rainy fall days.

As usual, this map is organized geographically. It is not ranked.
Note: Health experts consider dining out to be a high-risk activity for the unvaccinated; the latest data about the delta variant indicates that it may pose a low-to-moderate risk for the vaccinated, especially in areas with substantial transmission.
