Living the Patio Life in Asheville

Living the Patio Life in Asheville
Ah, it's summer in the mountains. During peak season, when the sun is at its hottest and the days go slowly by, we love to spend our evening hours relaxing on the patio of a local restaurant, cafe, or bar. To help visitors experience this blissful activity, we've spotlighted a few of our favorite patios below!
Creperie Bouchon
The quiet, tucked away patio at Creperie Bouchon on Lexington Ave is one of our absolute favorite spots to get together with friends. It has the feel of a sidewalk cafe in Paris and even though it's right off of one of Asheville's main streets, it has a charm that will turn any gathering into an all out good time. They have an all-you-can-eat mussel special offered 7 nights a week and their wine menu is selective and quite impressive. While away the late afternoon hours on this fantastic umbrella shaded patio... we know you'll love it!
Salvage Station
Salvage Station is one of Asheville's newest establishments and we absolutely love the personality and eclectic beauty of this riverside venue. It has the capacity to hold 2,500 people and they're often hosting musicians, festivals, and community events. Because it's next to the river, the temperature is just slightly cooler and even though our Southern summer sun never really dims, we find that it feels much less oppressive from the patio at this River Arts District hot spot. Be sure to head over with an empty belly - their menu is small but every item is special!
Social Lounge
Social Lounge is a great cocktail bar located on Broadway Street in downtown Asheville. Craft cocktails, local brews, delicious food - all of this is at your fingertips when you make the Social Lounge your destination. Their amazing rooftop terrace is the place to be in the summer months. Some of the best people-watching can be had from this prime position! For a true Asheville experience, make a stop at the Social Lounge a priority on your next visit!
