The top 5 patios to watch a Jays game in Toronto

The top patios to watch a Jays game in Toronto offer ample space for you to root for the home team with a beer in hand. If you can't snag tickets to see Bautista, Dickey, Pillar and the rest of the boys of summer take the field, opt for one of these outdoor watering holes.

Here are my picks for the top patios to watch a Jays game in Toronto.

Broncos
Broncos has elected to show all the major Blue Jays games on its sidewalk patio. And, good news, instead of spending excessive amounts on subpar hot dogs and nachos at the Rogers Centre, you can purchase eats here for around the $5 mark (and they taste way better).

Scallywags
The rooftop patio at Scallywags boasts not one, not two, but fourteen screens that you can watch the Blue Jays do their thing on. The space comes equipped with a retractable awning and heaters, so you won't have to budge if Mother Nature decides to shake things up.

Oasis
Maintain the belief that bigger is better? Same with Oasis. The rooftop space (located above Wayne Gretzky's) has enough room to seat 220, so feel free to bring your entire squad to the patio. There are four TVs set up for game-watchers to enjoy, but if you want to get a good viewing spot I recommend hitting the bar early.

Stone Lion
If you hail from the east, the Stone Lion is your best bet. The patio itself has undergone a pretty drastic makeover since the restaurant changed ownership (RIP, Lion on the Beach), so expect to find more communal seating and enough screens to get a good view of the game from any angle.

Against the Grain
Against the Grain in Leaside boasts a couple of big screens for you to enjoy the game on. And forget about sub-par plastic furniture, you can watch all the action go down from the comfort of an outdoor sofa (however, if you're eager to see everything I suggest posting up by the bar).
