The sun is shining, the air is warming and spring is here. We'll be spending as many of these days as possible at Drake's Dealership. The large outdoor patio lets you soak up that vitamin D, but the alfresco fun doesn't stop once the sun sets: The multiple fire pits and heaters keep you cozy all night. At this laid-back Uptown hangout, chill with grown-ups, kids and dogs alike as you chow down on shareable pizza and poutine. And since it's a Drake's establishment, you know the beer is going to be on point too. While we love a good IPA, we come back for the Nitro Stout and Drakonic, an 8.75 percent ABV imperial stout. Cheers to spring.


Drinks, pizza and good company on a spacious patio.
It's an outdoor oasis in Uptown, fire pits included.
