Patio Season: The 5th Season in Downtown Barrie!

Tuesday, June 20, 2017

We’re excited to get outdoors and enjoy the patio scene downtown! Did you know that there are now over 30 patios to explore along Dunlop Street in Downtown Barrie, thanks to an experiment that started over five years ago. Come downtown to enjoy the great vibe and take in the energy of the downtown. There’s nothing like it!

There’s something for everyone. Take in the beautiful view of Kempenfelt Bay while you sip a morning latte at Lazy Tulip Cafe or a cold pint on the rooftop at Hooligans. Bring the whole family downtown...there are many family friendly menus to explore and the kids will be easily entertained by all of the activity on the streets. Parents, you’ll be thrilled when the kids choose The Grilled Cheese Social Eatery...yes, it’s exactly that. Delicious gooey grilled cheese washed down with a homemade pop tart. The kids will love it and so will you!

Whether you are a sun worshipper or you tend to seek refuge from the rays, Downtown Barrie has a patio for everyone...streetside, waterfront, courtyards and rooftop patios to fit any taste. This patio season, meet a client for an ‘apintment’, sample some local craft beer, meet a friend for lunch or simply relax and soak up the scene with friends after a busy day.
