ABOUT THE PATIOS
The Patios debuted in May 2018 as a highly successful placemaking initiative and, with the help of Wachusett Brewing Company, a very popular foray into the outdoor beer garden trend. Through combined efforts between City of Boston Property Management, BRM production Management, Citywide Contracting and Boston artist Jeff Smith, the underutilized southeastern corner overlooking Faneuil Hall has been transformed into a daily destination for locals, tourists and commuters alike. The Patios open this season with a slightly extended footprint, making way for the return of fan favorites like the Wachusett Brew Yard, Wag Wednesdays and putt-putt mini-golf, and some new activations that are sure to get Bostonians pumped for patio season.
The Patios is a part of ‘Boston Seasons presented by Berkshire Bank’, a three-year plan created by Boston Garden Development Corp. and the City of Boston Property Management Department to revitalize the existing plaza at City Hall and create a vibrant welcome public space for all. Located in the center of the City and just steps from the MBTA’s Orange and Green lines, The Patios serve as urban oasis for residents, commuters, and visitors offering daily programming from picnics, pints, putt-putt and more. ‘The Patios’ will officially open on May 2.
