Best Local Patio


Readers' Picks

Considering Bardenay has not one but two of the best patios in the valley, this category was almost stacked. In fact, it was so hard for voters to choose only one of the restaurant/distillery's patios, that they chose both. Which you choose comes down to the experience you want. For great people watching, head to the downtown Boise location, where the expansive streetside patio is a relaxed social hub. For a private escape where tall trees shade the river-side patio, head to the Eagle location, where the addition of a nearby pond makes the patio all the sweeter. Of course, the love for these patios could well have something to do with the high quality of the booze at both bars. 610 W. Grove St., Boise, 208-426-0538; 155 E. Riverside Drive, Eagle, 208-938-5093,
