Five Places (Plus) To Grab A Drink On The Patio In Greater Hartford

We’ve been waiting all miserable winter for this weather to arrive. With temperatures in the 80s, it’s time to dine and drink outdoors. Pull up a chair (or barstool) on one of these local patios and enjoy the sunshine.

Chango Rosa, Hartford

Frozen rum cocktails, Latin comfort foods and an expansive patio (with a signature mural honoring Hartford historical figures as a backdrop) make Chango Rosa an ideal warm-weather destination. 1 Union Place, Hartford, 860-479-6662, changorosa.com.

Zohara, West Hartford

Light, fresh Mediterranean flavors are perfect patio dishes at this West Hartford Center space, which also features vegetable juice-based cocktails. Grab some friends and order rounds of salatim to share. 991 Farmington Ave., 860-955-0300, zoharact.com.
