Frolik A fifth-floor terrace getsa major makeover.

the Whale Wins
The two buzzy new restaurants in the Fremont Collective have each installed an outdoor space—at Joule cocktail drinkers spend cooler months gathered around the fire pit, but outdoor seating arrives in the summertime. Next door, the Whale Wins pulls off a secluded garden vibe right there on Stone Way and seats about 20.,


Sixteen sidewalk-facing seats just a few steps off Fremont’s main drag let you people watch in peace, over a plate of Maria Hines’s bucatini. (See our review of the resturant here!)


Highscore Burgers
Full Tilt Ice Cream’s burger shop in Redmond has a covered patio with heaters, enough chairs for about 20, and a rocking purple-and-yellow color scheme. But will it be enough to lure people away from those arcade games inside?

Don’t wrinkle your nose at the Red Lion location—the downtown hotel’s fifth-floor terrace just got a major remodel complete with shuffleboard, Ping-Pong, outdoor fireplaces, and views for days. 


Marination Ma Kai 
The postcard-worthy skyline views and giant patio space put Marination’s Alki Beach outpost on the fast track to iconic patio status. Even if the food wasn’t superb (it is).


Tom Douglas’s house of ramen is set to open this month in Belltown, putting into play a long, skinny, heated, 40-seat patio serving sake and gingery cocktails in the heart of the Sixth Avenue action. And by action we mean “construction.”
