America's Best Outdoor Bars

Graffiti Bar, Sampan, Philadelphia
Philly spray-paint artists Distort, A Lot and Rune tagged the walls and tables at this colorful 30-seat bar. The look is a little rough—enclosed by chain-link fencing at the back of the Asian restaurant Sampan—but the seasonal cocktails are clean and crisp. Try the refreshing Sampantini (Hendricks Gin, aloe vera, and cucumber) and time your visit to happy hour for $2 satays and a cocktail of the day (Monday–Friday 4–7 p.m.). A clear enclosed ceiling keeps the party going even on rainy days.
