There’s a reason people flock to outdoor patios at bistros and cafes: there’s nothing better than enjoying a nice cold glass of your favorite beverage under an umbrella in the warm sunshine and breezes, or a quiet dinner for two under the starry sky. People love to dine and relax in a comfortable, outdoor space. This creates great business opportunities for restaurants with outdoor patios and other spaces – except for when the weather turns stormy or cold.
Most restaurant patios are forced to operate only when the weather is warm enough and there is no rain in the forecast. But what if patio season never had to end? What if diners could enjoy beautiful, naturally lit outdoor seating any time of year and in any weather? There is a way it can be done.
