Top 5 Bars with Fireplaces

And just like that, it’s winter. This cold weather came out of nowhere so we put the top 5 bars with fireplaces in NYC.

Sure, your face is frozen and you can barely feel your fingers and toes, but a few minutes in front of that warmth and everything is all better. Plus all for these bars have some great cocktails that will take your mind off of the arctic temperatures outside. Maybe treat yourself to a Negroni, hot toddy or everyone’s favorite cold-weather spirit, whiskey. You’ll defrost in no time.

Top 5 Bars with Fireplaces in NYC

Rose Bar

Rose Bar in NYC

2 Lexington Avenue (in the Gramercy Park Hotel)

We love a hotel bar. And Rose Bar at Gramercy Park is one of the best rooms in NYC, with high ceilings, stunning artwork (Warhol? Check. Hirst? Check), delicious cocktails – and a wood-burning fireplace. Attracting a chic crowd of NYC tastemakers, Rose Bar is still the top choice for an exciting night out, and the fireplace is the perfect solution for the bone-chilling temperatures outside.

If you want to get a place by the fireplace you need to arrive early or be really lucky, either way you can warm up with a negroni or hot toddy by the fireplace. This is our first choice if you are on the Lower East Side.


Alewife nyc

5-14 51st Ave, LIC

A beer-lovers paradise located in Long Island City, Alewife is a local favorite – not only for it’s extensive selection of suds, but for it’s white brick fireplace in the upstairs dining room. With over 100 bottled beers and28 varieties on tap, as well as mulled wine and spiked cider, Alewife gives us yet another good reason to cross the bridge and venture out to Queens for a toasty toast.

Brandy Library

Brandy Library Tribeca

25 N. Moore Street

Brandy Library is exactly what the name suggests: a very cozy, elegant Tribeca destination where guests can listen to jazz music, sip a single malt scotch and listen to one of the venue’s two fires crackle nearby. This sophisticated space is the ultimate downtown clubhouse hangout, and the yummy lite bites make it a great spot for a relaxing night out – and out of the cold.

Clover Club

210 Smith Street, Cobble Hill

Since its opening, Clover Club has been touted as one of the best cocktails spots in NYC – thanks to owner and aster mixologist Julie Reiner.  But come wintertime, and devoted fans are flocking to this place for the roaring fire blazing in the bar’s back room, where guests can kick back with a creative cocktail.
