It’s finally springtime in the city. What better way to celebrate than to head outdoors to your favorite garden oasis, rooftop bar, or sun-drenched patio–with aperol spritz in hand, of course. At Lovejoy Wharf, you won’t have to travel too far to get your daily dose of Vitamin D, because you’re truly in the heart of it all.

Here are our top faves for enjoying some al fresco fun! We’ve been cooped up wayy too long…
