Summer in Las Vegas brings uncomfortable desert temperatures—so before the summer swelter settles in, you and your people should take advantage of Sin City’s many restaurants with outdoor dining!
Whether you’re socially distancing or simply want to take in views of the Strip’s skyline, Champion Charter Bus has put together this list of Las Vegas eateries where you can enjoy some fresh air during your meal. And if you need to plan your next corporate event or wedding rehearsal dinner, give us a call at 702-430-8311 to secure your diners’ ride to and from these alfresco restaurant spaces:
Address: 3131 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109
Mizumi has a reputation as one of the best fine dining experiences on the Strip, and if you’re planning to stay at the Wynn, this in-house restaurant is a convenient place to eat in the lap of luxury. The dress code is business casual, and no children under 5 are permitted—so this venue is better suited for corporate luncheons than your average family vacation.
Request the romantic and sequestered “floating pagoda” space at Mizumi, and your dinner guests can enjoy high-end sushi, sashimi, and warm seafood dishes away from the main indoor dining space. From there, everyone will have front-row seats to see the 90-foot waterfall display and tranquil koi pond.
Chayo Mexican Kitchen + Tequila Bar
Address: 3545 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109
For upscale Mexican eats, Chayo is the place to be. This Strip-side restaurant offers not one, but two patio spaces—one of which offers pretty illuminated views of the High Roller Observation Wheel after sundown. Both patios are rentable for all kinds of private events, but you should expect a less-than-formal affair, considering the venues’ mechanical bull and in-house DJ. As for food, your attendees can sample a variety of innovative dishes and authentic Mexican cooking, like sweet corn enchiladas and carne asada burritos stuffed with blackened steak.
Virgil’s Real Barbecue
Address: 3545 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109
Virgil’s is located in the same complex as Chayo—the LINQ Promenade—and adds a dash of unique Southern comfort to the Las Vegas Strip. It’s a spin-off establishment of the long-standing BBQ fixture in Times Square and offers many of the franchise’s fan-favorite plates. Fill up on Memphis-style spare ribs, Texan beef brisket platters, and carby sides like mac and cheese and potato salad while you people-watch from this restaurant’s airy second-floor balcony.
Address: 10100 W Charleston Blvd #150, Las Vegas, NV 89135
This New American bistro is a regular haunt for Summerlin locals, and it’s no wonder why. With refreshing Mediterranean flavors and a large collection of wines, Vintner offers a refreshing dining experience both inside and out. Choose to eat alfresco, and you’ll be greeted with a garden-like patio setting with shady trees and enough greenery that you’ll forget you’re in a bustling desert town.

Arts District Address: 1120 S Main St Suite 110, Las Vegas, NV 89104
Summerlin Address: 2120 Festival Plaza Dr Unit 140, Las Vegas, NV 89135
Most folks stop by this local coffee chain for an espresso and a shot of modern pop atmosphere. But if you’re looking for a fun venue for your next mixer or company party, both locations of M&F offer plenty of patio seating for groups and full space buyouts for private events. Here, you can enjoy standard cafe fare with a Latin twist, like tres leches waffles, chilaquiles, and arepa eggs benedict.
Park on Fremont
Address: 506 E Fremont St, Las Vegas, NV 89101
While you’re exploring the bright lights and shops of the Fremont Street Experience, consider stopping by this vibrant outdoor space for some peace and quiet. Its white picket fence, flower plots, tall plants, and mix of eclectic chairs lend to the backyard-like ambiance and laid-back mood.
The menu here is also casual, with brunch specials filled with frittatas and homestyle bacon-and-egg breakfasts, as well as sandwiches and craft burgers for lunch and dinner. The restaurant has a large bike rack for those who arrive by cycle, but if you’re planning to drink and want a designated DD, we recommend booking a private shuttle rental so a professional can ensure everyone arrives at home safely.
Jammyland Cocktail Bar and Reggae Kitchen
Address: 1121 S Main St, Las Vegas, NV 89104
If you’re craving Jamaican food, Jammyland can provide—with a stylish and funky patio space to boot! In the heart of Las Vegas’s Arts District, this Caribbean kitchen and bar offers mostly outdoor dining flanked by two bright murals (and some indoor seats when it gets too hot). Finish off a round of pepper pot sliders or jerk wings with tangy and rich cocktails like the Hocus Pocus (tequila, watermelon, lime, and rose cordial) or the Hotel Nacional (white rum, lime, and roasted pineapple syrup).
Address: 1218 S Main St, Las Vegas, NV 89104
This sibling-owned cocktail bar has been known for its cozy vintage furniture, dark and maximalist aesthetic, and mystical cocktail masterclasses since it opened. But recently it opened an outdoor patio that’s intimate, airy, and (most importantly) very, very pink.
Aside from the 12 beers on-tap and seasonal cocktail menu, Velveteen Rabbit offers private event planning for all kinds of groups who want to rent out the outdoor patio. Inquire about private tarot readings and the polaroid photo booth when you reserve the venue for your bachelorette party or office get-together with your small company. The large floral mural and bright pink furniture are sure to make for stunning photos for your guests’ social feeds!
Address: 3655 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109
A sports bar? In Paris Las Vegas? You better believe it! This bar-and-grill lives up to its name, with 36 beers on tap and a 9,000-square-foot deck with plush astroturf flooring throughout that gives it a park-like atmosphere. Chow down on soft pretzels, smoked brisket sliders, and Shock Top cheddar bratwurst between rounds of fun outdoor games like giant Jenga and Connect Four, cornhole, and more.
Beer Park is known for its year-round watch parties for the area’s most popular sports (from local hockey matches to football championships), making it a popular haunt for fan groups and team-building events. It can be bought out for events and parties and accomodates up to 1,200 standing guests and 265 seated dinner guests. The venue rental includes full AV hookups for multimedia presentations and full use of the space’s casual living room-style furniture. Between and the views of the replica Eiffel Tower overhead and the Bellagio Fountain display over the railing, your guests will have plenty to take in if you choose to dine here.
