Call it the summer of al fresco dining. Or don’t.

You could call it the summer of systemic racism boiling over, or the summer of the pandemic continuing its hold on countries worldwide.

Whatever you call it, there will be the option to eat outdoors.

Here is a list of Denver restaurants, breweries and bars with expanded outdoor patios. As of June 17, the city has granted 85 permits. We’ve organized them for you alphabetically and by neighborhood, district and street.
