It’s mid-summer and we are still working our way around the local patios. The Red Light at 1185 Dundas St West is open most weekend afternoons, and at night. The two room bar also offers a cozy, South-facing patio with a lot of built in benches for seating. Order a drink from the bar before you head to the back, and lounge in the sun making new friends of your neighbors. It’s a young, friendly crowd, and sometimes they have special BBQ meals and other one-time-only events. You never know what you’ll get, but it’s probably fun at The Red Light.
Down on southern Ossington lies Baby Huey, a mostly late night spot at 70 Ossington. We stopped in on a recent Saturday after 11pm, and the crowd still hadn’t arrived, which allowed us the back patio almost entirely to ourselves. It’s a large back patio with some pretty interesting wall murals, and the drinks are cheap, so come early for a seat, or later to mingle with the cool kids. See you on the patio!
