Patio Design Ideas for Your Restaurant

Now is the time to open the doors to your restaurant and prepare for a successful summer dining experience. As it gets warmer, most patrons want to sit outdoors and safely enjoy the weather after being cooped up in the house all winter. Is your restaurant’s patio ready for new patrons? Here are some patio design ideas that are sure to wow your customers.

Misting Fans

You can keep patrons cool by installing misting fans throughout the patio. Misting fans come in a wide range of shapes, sizes, and designs. That means you’re sure to find one that fits your business’ aesthetic. If you’d rather conceal the misting fans, you can use container plantings and position them in high-traffic spaces such as the bar.

Twinkle Night Lighting

You can add ambiance to your patio by incorporating string lights. The soft glow of string lights offers just enough brightness for patrons to see their meal yet remains dim enough to enjoy a starry night. People will flock to your restaurant just to enjoy dinner underneath the stars and the ambiance of string lights.

Bar-Side Walk-Up Windows

Have a convenient solution for customers who want food to go. Walk-up food windows on the patio give customers a convenient and easy way to order the food they love. While they wait, they can enjoy your restaurant’s patio. A walk-up window also provides a safe way for customers to order food. 

Supersized Container Plantings

Bigger is better when it comes to container plantings. Large containers can house trees that provide shade and beautify the landscaping. Large containers are ideal for restaurant patios since they’re portable, compact, and colorful. You can choose from a variety of vessels and plants. 


You can protect your customers from intense heat or rain by installing an awning over your restaurant patio. Awnings are decorative and functional, making them a great investment. Install an awning that matches your restaurant’s color, or choose a style that adds a pop of color. You can never go wrong with an awning.
