Ravenswood locals flock to this bar for its namesake’s warmth (everyone loves the covered, heated patio) and coziness. Bartenders tend to pour heavy here—we ordered a Scotch on the rocks and found ourselves drinking from a full highball glass—so some food from the adjoining restaurant will be in order to soak it all up.

Great cozy ambiance with plenty of open air, the Patio is heavenly, the Staff are always incredibly friendly, and they have a BUILD-YOUR-OWN-BLOODY-MARY-BAR! On point!

One of the best 4am bars in Chicago period. I have been coming here for years. From back in the day when I was single, all the way up until now with my wife and kids! Family friendly and very chill atmosphere. Never change, Fireside!

Fantastic bar in a gees location. The patio is a hidden gem and the staff is wonderful!

The Bloody Mary bar here is a thing of insanity. This bar is tucked away so it's usually not TOO crowded, I like to come here for afternoon beers and darts with friends on the weekend.
