Fort Wayne Outdoor Dining Options

It’s finally the time of year where it’s warming up, and we can take our socializing outside. For me, the Indiana summers are just one more reason that I love where I live. There’s nothing I enjoy more than socializing, eating, and drinking in an outdoor space; and believe it or not, Fort Wayne offers plenty of outdoor dining options. I did a series called Dining Al Fresco where I covered a handful of locally-owned places with outdoor dining. This time I’m going to condense it all into one amazing post of locally-owned, outdoor dining spots. But here’s the scoop, I don’t know everything! (I know, right. It is hard to believe!) I will need your help. If I missed one, let us know on Twitter or Facebook.     Locally-Owned Eateries with Outdoor Dining 800 Degrees 800 Degrees Three Fires 816 Pint and Slice Anastasia’s Cafe BakerStreet Black Canyon Restuarant Black Dog Pub Calhoun St. Soups, Salads, and Spirits Caliente Catablu Grille Chappell’s Coral Grill Chevvy’s Pizza and Sports Pub Club Soda Columbia Street West Dash-In The Deck Dicky’s Wild Hare Don Chavas El Azteca Flanagan’s Friendly Fox The Golden Granite City Hall’s Triangle Park Henry’s The Hoppy Gnome J K O’Donnell’s Joseph Decuis Junk Ditch Brewing Company Loving Cafe Mad Anthony Brewing Co.

Top 7 Bars for The Best Bros Night Ever

Work is over, the week is done, and now it’s time to loosen that tie and unwind with your guys. After a hectic work week, we at Living Fort Wayne can understand wanting to rage for the weekend. Here are some bars that have been carefully selected to ensure a great night out with the bros! Corner Pocket Located down the street from IPFW’s campus, this makes it a great place to catch a brew right after classes are over. $5.00 long islands/beaches and $2.75 domestics on Friday and Saturday nights. With frequent live music and a pool hall to enjoy, Corner Pocket has everything you need to scratch that college party itch. O’Sullivan’s Catch the game or a few adult drinks. This place is known for their pizza, cheap (and generous) drinks, and overall raggle-taggle atmosphere. If one of the stops is here, just get the pizza. Don’t ask questions, just get the pizza. Your crew will not regret it. Columbia Street West Talk about a great time in a spacious, fun bar and you’ve got Columbia Street West! Wednesday and Thursday nights they have $1 domestic longnecks and 2$ Coronas & Modelos! Weekends are filled with a live DJ ready for you to bust a move on the dance floor. The Deck at the Gas House Overlooking the St. Mary’s River, The Deck has the best summer atmosphere you can get in Fort Wayne. They have an amazing beer selection as well as top-notch cocktails that will leave you feeling satisfied and probably not able to drive. This place reaches maximum bro around 11PM-1AM, so plan accordingly. Rudy’s Cigar Shop A one of a kind place that serves up beer, wine slushies and cigars! Grab a stogy, head out to their cozy beer garden, and sit around a fire with your friends while enjoying Rudy’s selection of beer and wine. Did I mention that they serve Debrand’s Chocolate as well? Tower Bar & Grill I’ve heard from many sources that this place offers the best wings in town, and the rumor is so true. You deserve it, the guys deserve it, get those wings and pile them high. Shamelessly devour them devoid of any napkins until the end. The wings are so good that I would literally cater them for my wedding. Summit City Brewerks Friday and Saturday nights here are becoming increasingly popular, and how can it not when Summit City Brewerks offers half off bottles of wine on Fridays and live music on Saturdays? Wanting to start the weekend a little early? Summit City also has a half-off house pint night on Thursdays! I would also...
