5 Best Patios in Whistler

LonghornAfter a day skiing or riding Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains, you may wonder where is the best place to enjoy a cold beer on a sunny patio. Here is our pick of the best 5 patios in Whistler.

1. Roundhouse Lodge

The Roundhouse Lodge features three large outdoor decks, which all feature breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains and valley.  This is the perfect place to soak up the sun, enjoy lunch and just relax.  The Roundhouse Lodge is easily accessible via the Whistler Village Gondola.  This is a great meeting spot for any non-skiers or riders in your group who want to experience an on mountain patio without having to ski or ride to get there.

2. Longhorn Saloon

The Longhorn Saloon is consistently rated the #1 après spot in Whistler. Located at the base of Whistler Mountain, it really does offer one of the best patios in Whistler. Enjoy the unobstructed mountain views of both Whistler and Blackcomb Mountain.

3. Dusty's

Dusty's Bar & BBQ is located at the base of Whistler Mountain in Creekside, Dusty's is famous for its award-winning authentic BBQ, friendly locals, and great sunny patios.  The atmosphere is relaxed and has a feel of a traditional ski lodge compete with a rustic interior made from the refurbished beams and wood and the picnic table seating.  Enjoy the magnificent view of Whistler Mountain from the two patios.

4. Merlin's

Are you looking for the best patio at the base of Blackcomb Mountain? Then head over to Merlin's Bar and Grill's featuring "Whistler's Best Nachos" and great views looking up Blackcomb Mountain from the sunny patio. Merlin's is also famous for its local music legends The Hairfarmers, legendary après scene and 'pay day Fridays'.

5. Cittas

Cittas (pronounced 'cheetahs') offers the best 'people watching' patio in Whistler. Located in the heart of Whistler Village, across from Araxi Restaurant, this patio is in the middle of all the action.  As well as the awesome patio, Citta's offers great service, fresh food and daily drink specials.

There is more snow in the Whistler forecast for the next few days, but on the next sunny day make sure you try one or all of these great Whistler patios.
