Even though L.A. bars continue to remain closed, there are still plenty of restaurants in the city to enjoy a drink al fresco. In addition to serving cocktails outdoors, which can also be taken to-go, these restaurants adhere to California’s guidelines for outdoor dining, including spacing tables and chairs six feet apart and requiring staff and guests to wear face coverings. The only stipulation is that imbibers must order food to go along with their cocktails, but at a restaurant, that just means bites that are a step up from salted nuts. Here now are 21 fabulous places to drink al fresco in Los Angeles.

Removed: Formosa Cafe, Redbird, Everson Royce Bar, Post and Beam, the Tasting Kitchen, Hippo

Added: All-Season Brewing, Severance, Party Beer Co., Thunderbolt, the Mermaid, Melrose Umbrella Co., Lowboy

A number of LA restaurants have resumed dine-in service. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for dining in, as there are still safety concerns: for updated information on coronavirus cases in your area, please visit the Los Angeles Public Health website. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.

The outdoor patio at Gracias Madre West Hollywood is a regular on many best outdoor dining lists. And now there’s even more of it to love as the restaurant has extended its new socially distant patio seating out onto the street. But even though margaritas and tequila highballs are flowing freely, the staff casually oversees the scene, making sure the tipsy put on their masks once they get up from their table. Reservations aren’t required but walk-ins may have to wait up to an hour to be seated. Enjoy drink deals all day on Taco Tuesdays and from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. for weekday happy hours.
