Oak and Ivy at Downtown Container Park
Yes, they have beer to have outdoors but I feel like I should tell you that they have whiskey and some very good barrel aged cocktails. The patio overlooks the Downtown Container Park and if there is a musical act on stage you can hear the music but relax with a good drink.
The beer is better than you’ll have at some of the other spots on this list but it’s worth the experience.
