Chicago Restaurants with Fireplaces


660 N State St, Chicago, IL 60654

Snag a seat in the back of the restaurant and get the added bonus of a super-cozy spot while you feast on delicious (but not so hot) sushi.

North Pond Restaurant

2610 N Cannon Dr, Chicago, IL 60614

In winter, there's no cozier spot than a table by this fine Lincoln Park restaurant's copper-accented fireplace. The warm comfort food seals the deal.

Feast- Gold Coast

25 E Delaware Pl, Chicago, IL 60611

A massive wine list and tasty small plates at Feast make lingering on plush fireside couches a treat.

IL Mulino

1150 N Dearborn St, Chicago, IL 60610

No need to worry about getting a place near the fireplace--there's one in each dining room (of the Italian marble variety, to be specific)--a perfect match for the warm, Italian fare served inside this cozy old mansion.

Chicago Bars with Fireplaces


2 W Erie St, Chicago, IL 60610

It's not even close to warm at the top of the Dana Hotel, especially when you consider they keep the outdoor patio open year-round. But roaring outside fire pits and heat warming lamps somehow make the experience a warm one--especially with hot toddies...

Celtic Crossings

751 N Clark St, Chicago, IL 60610

This Irish pub with a crackling fireplace and good cheer attracts River North professionals and savvy city-visitors. The always-bustling bar is packed with patrons, adding to the overall heat inside.

Fireplace Inn

1448 N Wells St, Chicago, IL 60610

Fireplace Inn gives you a good idea--a warm, cozy interior with fireplaces galore. Greasy ribs and always-flowing liquor are more reasons this Old Town bar is a winter hot spot.
