What’s the difference between the bar, patio and dining room?

What is the patio like? 
Our patio is located within the Howard Hughes building on Pier 17, with a roof overhead to protect from inclement weather.

During the winter, we fully enclose the patio, including a roof, with heaters directly over most tables to maximize comfort!
