Grab a meal at one of these restaurants in the metro area offering heated and covered outdoor dining.
Since the Denver metro area went under Level Red restrictions just after Thanksgiving, restaurants across the region have been trying to find creative ways to stay open. As winter brings snowy, cold weather, no one wants to shiver outside on a frozen metal table, so many eateries are coming up with heated and covered solutions.
Support your local restaurants and check out one of many offering heated patios or covered outdoor dining. Keep in mind many restaurants are running on a reservations-only basis. Not ready to brave the cold for open-air dining? Most restaurants on this list are offering takeout and delivery! Learn more about both options at each link.
