New patios are popping up all over town this summer. Star Bar introduced its outdoor "Bar Port" last month, complete with a draft system and a tiki theme. A half-dozen blocks and a world away, Edge at the Four Seazons unveiled its renovated patio in late June.
Elway's Downtown plans on completing its new outdoor space by August 1; that's when City, O' City hopes to open the thirty-seat patio it envisioned when it expanded its dining area and kitchen last year.
And in the meantime, here are two more new patios:
Frank's Kitchen, 2600 High Street, has put the finishing touches on its new outdoor seating area -- a welcome addition to the popular yet tiny space. "It's doubled our seating capacity, which is nice," says Dina Berta, who owns the year-old, eclectic neighborhood joint with her husband, Frank. "It's a great place to enjoy our new fresh-fruit milkshakes."
