Take it outside! We mean it: As Chicago's best restaurants and bars open their outdoor spaces for the season, there's no shortage of alfresco experiences to be had. Looking for a chill beer garden retreat? We're big fans of Kaiser Tiger. Want to show off the city to out-of-towners? Nab a reservation at Cindy's. Searching for a new hidden oasis to call your own this summer? The Warbler has you covered. No matter the situation, we have a rooftop or patio for you. Check out our complete guide to Chicago's finest outdoor dining and drinking spots. Oh, and don't forget your sunscreen!
