Your guide to the Penticton patio scene during COVID times (May 1 update)

Welcome Penticton to the May 1st update of our citywide patio guide.

We've just added nine more patios to our list and lost one (the Angry Vegan closed its doors April 30), which brings the total to an impressive 39 unique outdoor spots within Penticton where you can eat, drink and be merry as temperatures rise and summer approaches.

We’ve grouped the patios into four zones ("Okanagan Lake Waterfront," "Downtown," "Mid-City," and "Skaha Lake Waterfront") and arranged them alphabetically within those zones. We've included pertinent data like hours of operation, capacities when we have that info, heated versus unheated, dog-friendliness, addresses/phone numbers/website links, and even menu summaries. And of course, a photo of each.

We'll continue to append our info throughout the summer. And don't forget, if you run a food and beverage biz with a patio and you're not in our guide or if your info has changed, reach out and let us know. Just email [email protected]

And lastly, remember the caveat. To quote the message from the premier's office, "People dining on patios should do so with their immediate household or core bubble."

Off we go.
