An in-depth guide to Central Okanagan patios so you can #SupportLocal

On Tuesday, we put out a call to the public to help us put together an up-to-date list of patios that are open for business in the Central Okanagan.

With the restrictions that went into place on Monday regarding indoor dining in British Columbia, we wanted to give people an easy way to support local.

That meant the creation of an in-depth list of Central Okanagan patios that are currently open for business, as well as information on their hours, menus, heater situation and whether they're pet friendly.
 

Since Tuesday, we've been bombarded with more than 50 emails from grateful business owners and a number of other messages and comments suggesting we include certain places on the list.

Everyone who emailed us is on the list and we've managed to get a number of other spots on there as well, but we know we're still missing a number of places across the Central Okanagan.

This list will be constantly evolving, so if we missed your restaurant, bar, pub, cafe or brewery, please send an email to josh@kelownanow.com and we'll get you on there!

For now, however, this is the list we've put together, which has been split into six different regions to make the search for a spot to eat or grab a drink just a little bit easier.

Whether you're in Kelowna, West Kelowna, Lake Country or anywhere in between, you should be able to find a few patio options close by that fit your needs and desires.

So without further adieu, here's the first edition of our spring 2021 patio list that we hope will help you support local during these difficult times for the hospitality industry!

We would also like to thank Al Lang from Bean Scene, featured in the video below, whose suggestion helped spark this list!
