We’ve all been on a weekend group text when someone chimes in with, “Let’s go to the BeltLine, and then let’s go to Ladybird!” Once the weather warms up, this spot becomes one of the most popular patios in the city. It’s dog friendly, has an outdoor bar inside a vintage camper for when it gets really crowded, and has a cute lodge theme that will make you nostalgic for camp, or Moonrise Kingdom. Besides drinks, they serve food too, with snacks like pimento cheese fritters and homemade jerky, and larger options like the backyard BBQ board for when everyone from your group text decides to join.
