Under the Umbrella

Our Favorite Patios to Celebrate Summer

The wide river meanders and wanders up through a forest of trees, where near the shore an occasional rock sticks its head above the water just enough for a child to play on. Beyond the river, several umbrellas have popped up, and eager diners watch the water roll by as they relax on lounge chairs. As the city lights from the Perimeter dim, the tree line gets thicker and the concrete subsides.  Our communities and neighboring city centers are busting with an essential patio lifestyle. From Sandy Springs, Vinings, Smyrna and Alpharetta, to Johns Creek there is a patio with your name on it. Let us find you one.


The quiet river flows by as the covered patio keeps you cool from sun. The winding walkways meander around the lawn sending you down hidden paths. Located on the Chattahoochee, Canoe is the perfect escape with a mix of gardens, patio space, and ambiance.


Like walking into a surfside bar with a beautiful expansive patio, beach vibes are what you will get at Chiringa in Alpharetta. From the teal umbrellas to white furniture, you can feel the ocean at your toes the moment you walk up. A frosé anyone?

Jekyll Brewing

The Jekyll Island-inspired, beachy rooftop deck and bar at Jekyll Brewing in Alpharetta City Center is a one-of-a-kind spot with an airstream literally in the middle! You can grab a beer right from the airstream window and hang out along its side.

Live! At the Battery

Next to Truist Park, Home of the Braves, Live! At The Battery knocks the patio out of the park. Feeling the electricity of the stadium, it’s one amazing patio and has everything from game watching, music, DJs, brunch, and everything in between.

Ocean & Acre

Land and sea come together in perfect harmony at Ocean & Acre at Halcyon Forsyth! The second you step onto their patio, you’re transported to a seaside village, with tropical beach vibes, and even a shell fireplace to warm up cool nights.

Ray’s on the River

There’s a light breeze over the Chattahoochee River and the intermittent clouds cool down the heat. Next to it, Ray’s on the River’s beautifully landscaped lawn is dotted with large patio umbrellas, patio furniture, and a serene walkway with purple and pink flowers.
