4 beautiful St. Louis patios to check out now
The weather is getting warmer, and patios are opening across the St. Louis area. Here are four we’re loving right now.
Edera Italian Eatery
Edera Italian Eatery features one of the most stunning patios in the city: a massive ivy-covered wall flanks the back side of the lush courtyard, which is tucked away from the street in the Central West End. Reservations specifically for courtyard seating are not available as it’s weather dependent; however, people with reservations get priority for courtyard seating. The courtyard also hosts a night market twice a year, so keep an eye on Edera’s social media for details. Edera is open 5 to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 5 to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

There are plenty of umbrellas to shade you from the sun, as well as heaters for those chilly evenings. Seating includes mainly four-tops, but larger parties can easily be accommodated. Patio seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Live music is performed from 7 to 9 p.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Robust is open noon to 10 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and open till 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
