Heated Patios and Tents in the Metro Detroit Area

heated patios and tents metro detroit 2

I realize that everyone has varying levels of comfort with dining out right now.

The fact of the matter is that our local businesses need our support now more than ever before.

Also, with everything shut down, there isn’t much to do besides well…eat…haha.

The beautiful thing about heated patio and tents is that there is no food and beverage minimum (unlike with most igloo dining)!


If you are looking specifically for igloos, check out this post here.


Please also remember to be patient and kind (and generous with your tips) because this is a difficult and stressful time for all.


If tents and patios and igloos aren’t for you, then I hope you will support your favorite establishments by ordering carryout!


I did my best to research who is truly a heated patio and who would be considered more of a tent, so please be patient with me there too! I did not go to each place personally because I don’t have that much time or money haha.



Some places require reservations and others are first come first serve.

Keep an eye on their social media. They have special events often (including a Sunday champagne brunch)! They also have some unique Christmas cocktails like the Scrooge, By the Open Fire, Mistletoe Mule, Santa Baby, Bumble All the Way, and Naughty & Spice!

Marrow (Detroit)

Heated patio, one heater per table (I feel like this place really needs our support! From their Facebook page: “On Thanksgiving night someone broke the lock to the back gate of our patio and stole the tower heaters and all the propane tanks we’d bought to re-launch a comfortable patio service for the winter.”

Make a reservation.

About Reservations (Per the Website): “For reservation only, we are offering a pre-paid, prix-fixe, 5-course dinner. This style of service is intended to limit the amount of interaction you have with our staff while unmasked (and the amount of interaction our staff has with you!).While all food is pre-order, beverage orders are placed once seated through a card system at your table. Our patio is covered by a pergola, with partial walls on each side of the building. Each table has a designated propane heater – but you are outside and we do encourage you to dress for the weather and BYOB (Bring Your Own Blanket!). We only have 6 tables available. We are only booking reservations 1 week in advance due to the frequent changes!”

      Hi Cheri,
      I added Bigalora Royal Oak, Southfield, Plymouth, and Ann Arbor. You are welcome! I hope it helps get the word out. I had no idea so many places were open until I started doing all of this research!

    There was an ad in the paper for McVee’s Pub & Grub in Troy that said they have a heated patio and are open for seating. Closed Monday, open 2-9 pm Tue-Sun. 248-817-2980

    Thank you so much for creating this list – I had been unable to find anything like it, and we tried driving through downtown Rochester last week to see if we could find anything and it was just too hard to tell if anyplace was open!

      Thank you for the heads up! I try to keep the list as up to date as possible, but things have been changing very quickly (with places either opening up or shutting back down again).

    I went to Crews Inn, which is literally right next door to Bumper’s Landing. They had the bar open, with mostly no roof but lots of heaters. The wait at Bumper’s was over 30 minutes when we got there at 3:15pm today (Sunday).
