Patios and decks from Martini Corner to Leawood

Smokers and fresh-air lovers can now coexist this summer, thanks to a number of new patios around Kansas City.

The Drop has a new deck space, which owner Eddie Crane had been hoping to unveil last summer. The drink of the moment at the Martini Corner restaurant is a sparkling blueberry lemonade martini. Happy hour is from 3 to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. Reverse happy hour:10 p.m. to close Sunday through Thursday.

The 75th Street Brewery has opened the Alley — a beer garden in the former Kennedy’s space. The space is partly covered and has a complete bar, so you don’t have to wait for your Cow Town Wheat. Tuesday is 2-for-1 burger day. After 10 p.m., you can get a draft beer for $1.
