With days warming up, there’s never been a better time to dine outside. Whether a bar, rooftop restaurant, or an outdoor patio, Montgomery has plenty to offer. Here are some of our favorite outdoor dining spots in Montgomery.
It’s not just a conventional bar or lounge, it’s a charming tapas bar and restaurant that offers excellent beverage choices and a space for live music and good conversation. The menu offers tapas, salads, even charcuteries with nuts and meats, and mouthwatering desserts like their blueberry foster. My favorite dish here was the tomato bruschetta, and the classy vibes of the establishment are here to stay.
