One of the best ways to get rid of winter’s cabin fever? Sit outdoors with a nice cold drink.

Garden District
Status: Open, with heaters.
Go for: The pulled-pork barbecue sandwiches and the cheap-but-good beers. And go early, because when it’s warm out, it’s nearly impossible to get a seat at the popular 14th Street spot.
1811 14th St. NW.

Donovan House rooftop
Status: Opens April 11.
Go for: The sweeping vista of Thomas Circle and downtown. There’s also a new Asian taco menu, featuring chilled mushroom tacos topped with mango and jalapeno, crispy jicama taco shells and takoyaki, a type of croquette made with octopus.
1155 14th St. NW.

Status: Open, with heaters.
Go for: Happy hour every day and sit-down service at this Mexican restaurant’s half-covered sidewalk patio on H Street NE. Chupacabra’s Inferno salsa is so spicy, you have to sign a waiver before eating it.
822 H St. NE.

Status: Open, with heaters.
Go for: German beers, some of which are served in an enormous, boot-shaped vessel. The broad picnic tables and Liz Taylor mural add to the warm-weather vibe at this Shaw watering hole.
