An OK locals bar, but nothing special.  The large beer selection is probably its savior (and the recent renovation didn't hurt).  But, it does not belong on this list.  The 'courtyard' out back is about as far from drinking outside as you could get.  4 walls and roof constitute as a room, not an outside space.  I can't help but think this was some shoddy work by TimeOut, within a few block radius of The Courtyard is Molly Blooms and Gas Light.  Both of these bars have actual outdoor seating in their gardens. There is also Bar 43, a sports bar with sidewalk seating.  Venture a few blocks further and you'll find Claret, Dog and Duck, and Flynns, all of which have gardens and/or sidewalk seating too.
