Remember when your parents told you to go outside and play? We're giving you the same advice this summer—and Chicago is filled with sidewalk patios, rooftop bars, beer gardens and waterfront restaurants that beckon every time the sun is shining.

We did the tough work for you by scoping out the best options for every occasion—from a leisurely brunch in the sun to a dinner set above the streets. Many of these spots even double as the best bars in Chicago, if you're craving a cold beverage. Here's where to go when you're in the mood for outdoor drinking and dining in Chicago.
