Ottawa patios open for business

Summer is patio time in Canada’s capital! Many of the region’s bars and restaurants have opened (or even extended) their outdoor areas, with physical distancing in effect. Several streets are even closed to traffic to allow more patio space! We’ve gathered some of the open patios throughout Ottawa’s vibrant neighbourhoods where you can enjoy a pint, a cocktail or a snack outdoors.
