Winter is not the only season where a bar with a fireplace would be ideal. Those random rainy days or relatively cooler days are excellent times to dry off and warm up by the fire. The smell of wood burning and cozy setting is enough to lure New Yorkers in for a drink and stay for another.
With such amazing bars right here in the city, you wouldn’t want to navigate to Washington DC for a weather change!
Here’s a list of some of the best bars with fireplaces in the city:
1. Black Mountain Wine House
The perfect day could just be as simple as sitting by the fire with a nice glass of wine. And at Black Mountain Wine House, you will get just that and more. Sit by the warm wood-burning brick hearth and sip on some mulled wine and forget the cold, one beautiful degree at a time.
2. Lobby Bar at the Bowery Hotel
This beautiful Art Deco vibed bar might just be littered with foreigners and tourists staying at the hotel but that should not stop you from snatching one of the massive armchairs or procure a seat on one of their overstuffed couches right by the gas furnace. Try the Negroni or The Old Fashioned while you’re at it.
3. Employees Only
You will be greeted by a wonderful little fortune teller as you enter this comfy version of a Prohibition Era speakeasy. At Employees Only, you can obtain one of their crazy craft cocktails with funky names and feel like you just belong. Ask for their Provencal or Hi-Octane Mix from one of the chef-coat clad barkeeps and sip away the worries of the day.
