Cozy’s Café & Pub Cozy’s Café & Pub has an L-shaped gray-brick patio with a pergola that lights up at night. The patio is very large but secluded and guests often feel like they are transported to a vacation spot.

Taste of Belgium Taste of Belgium at The Banks has two patios: The first sits along Rosa Parks, facing the Freedom Center, and the second patio runs the length of the bistro along Freedom way — facing Smale Riverfront Park and the Ohio River, offering a terrific view of the Roebling Bridge. The smaller of our patios is sunny during the morning/early afternoon but offers a nice break from the heat in the evening. The second is sunny for most of the day and heated for those chilly evenings. The airy patio invites guests to sit and stay a while: Sip on a Belgian beer while taking in a river and city view, or try one of our Belgian-American dishes, like the super popular Waffle & Chicken. Happy hour is 3-6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, with $2 off any of our 54 drafts, plus $3 well drinks and $3 bistro wines. We have the best seats for viewing the Friday night fireworks at the Great American Ball Park — a great way to end a late dinner. 7 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday; 7 a.m.-10 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday; 7 a.m.11 p.m. Friday; 8 a.m.-11 p.m. Saturday; 8 a.m.-3 p.m. Sunday. 16 W.
