Element (1419 Carroll Street; 314-241-1674)

sarahbee2005: Element! They have a beautiful lounge patio, as well as a dining terrace. If you sit in the far right corner on the terrace, you've got a gorgeous view of downtown and the arch.

Rehab Lounge (4054 Chouteau Avenue; 314-652-3700)

Nick Bretz: Rehab Bar and Grill in the Grove. Awesome patio

CBGB (3163 South Grand Boulevard)

Bagel: CBGB is totally underrated. It's out front and mixes with the South Grand action. Split a gin bucket with a dozen friends at the huge picnic tables.

Russell's on Macklind (5400 Murdoch Avenue; 314-553-9994)

Leah Freeman: Oh no! How could I forget about the absolute best patio in St. Louis, Russell's on Macklind ?!
