There’s nothing like New York in the summer. With perfect weather and Summer Fridays, everyone seems to be in a much lighter mood. These are the best outdoor dining and drinking spots in Brooklyn to hit over the summer; so get your drink on, people-watch and gaze longingly into the horizon wishing summer lasted forever.

1 Maison Premiere

Maison Premiere, a French oasis located on Bedford Ave, feels like you've stepped into a world away from the city. Sit at their lush garden and enjoy bites from their raw bar, their popular oysters and a long list of craft cocktails.

2 Milk and Roses

A secret gem on Manhattan Avenue in Greenpoint, Milk and Roses is a captivating, intimate setting with a lively garden in the back. Come for one of the best bottomless brunches in the city during the weekend (no time limit!) and get your mimosa fix with a side of their incredible Croque Monsieur.

3 Forrest Point

Located in Bushwick, Forrest Point boasts one of the best outdoor seating areas in the neighborhood. Enjoy brunch offerings Saturday and Sunday from 11AM-4PM ranging from French Toast to Chilaquiles, or stop by for one of their many inventive cocktails on the terrace (we recommend the Brazilian!).

A Williamsburg classic, Juliette's rooftop is a summertime must. Right off of Bedford Avenue, this spot is usually abuzz with locals, and its fresh food is on par with its authentic ambience. Its large rooftop garden serves as the perfect place to grab a cocktail or take in a long, leisurely weekend brunch, complete with a sweeping view of the Burg.
