While a ginger latte or a hot toddy might warm you up on these chilly nights, nothing does the trick like a good fireplace. Thankfully, our options are plentiful for sipping cocktails and dining fireside. Check out these spots that set fire to the cold.

Nightlife in the winter can be challenging when you want to wear your little black dress in 30-degree weather. 1 OAK allows for a night on the town by keeping everyone warm with its roaring fireplace. It’s tucked into the wall, so your back stays toasty as you mingle.

Love is in the air at Bouley.  Dine by the romantic hand-carved fireplace with a hearth imported from France, and take in the picturesque scene by dining on meals such as wild mushrooms and organic Long Island duck with hand-milled polenta.


Antica Pesa

Escape the cold by enjoying some Italian wine by the fire. Williamsburg’s Antica Pesa is the sister restaurant to the original in Rome, which opened in 1922. Peruse the antique books, trinkets and wine bottles while you’re there.


Library Bar the Hudson Hotel

This cozy spot is exactly what the name suggests: a library. Sit back on comfy leather sofas and wing chairs and read a book from its extensive collection. If you’re not in the mood to read, shoot some billiards or play a computer game all while relaxing by the fireplace. Library now also offers breakfast and coffee between 6:30 and 11 a.m. daily.
