Brian,

Jeffrey is correct, newer places (at least in USA) normally 
require the patio and other outdoor outlets be hooked to the 
GFCI circuit. Check the one of the bathroom plugs, they are the 
normal place a GFCI switch is located. The other is a kitchen 
one.

Something to try: If the circuit is protected by ground fault 
interrupter (GFCI) it might be tripped.  There will be a test 
and reset button on them, right on the outlet.  Hit reset if you 
have this.  If there are multiple outlets for the circuit, the 
reset may only be on one...so you might have to look at other 
outlets away from the powerless one.
