Greenpoint (and pretty much all of NYC) will be experiencing record breaking temps of almost 70 degrees over the next two days. It’s March, people. Are you ready to strip off those coats? Here are some of our favorite outdoor spots in Greenpoint where you can soak up some of that good ol’ Vitamin E.

Lobster Joint – 1073 Manhattan Ave.
Open from noon every day, they’ve got a lovely New Englandy open air beer garden in the back of their seafood restaurant. Grub on a lobster roll and chill out with a beer.

More hotspots after the jump…

Milk and Roses – 1110 Manhattan Ave. (at Clay Street)
A beautiful and charming Italian restaurant that feels like you entered into someone’s private library, complete with grand piano. And the back garden is gorgeous.

The Diamond – 43 Franklin St.
Ahh, the Diamond. Where you can play both indoor shuffleboard and outdoor horseshoes. Their back patio is legit.

Broken Land - backyard

Broken Land – 105 Franklin St. (at Greenpoint Ave.)
This very chill and inviting bar also has a chill and inviting back patio open till 11pm. And if you come early enough, you can probably catch happy hour too.

Troost - back garden

Troost – 1011 Manhattan Ave.
They’ve got delicious meat and cheese spreads to go with your drinks, but what’s even more awesome if their back garden. Check it out after 4pm.

t.b.d. beer garden

t.b.d. – 224 Franklin St.
The beer garden at t.b.d. is freaking massive. Don’t believe us? Go check it out for yourself.

No Name Bar – 597 Manhattan Ave.
There’s no sign, no name, and very few pictures of this bar online. But trust us, there’s actually a bar at this address, and they have an outdoor patio.

Pencil Factory – 142 Franklin Street. (at Greenpoint Ave.)
This neighborhood staple bar pretty much always has chairs and tables set up on the sidewalk. Lounge while it’s still light out—they open at 3pm Monday through Friday.

The Black Rabbit – 91 Greenpoint Ave. (between Manhattan & Franklin)
You might know the Black Rabbit for its cozy pub atmosphere with a fireplace that’s ideal in the winter. But they also have a nice beer garden in the back. Perfect for today’s weather, they open at 4pm.
