Our long winters have one big upside—getting to cozy up next to a fireplace while eating and drinking at some of the best Chicago restaurants and bars. We found 40 to seek out this winter, ranging from rooftop bars with fire pits and great views of the city to fireplaces at some of the city's best cocktail bars.

Enjoyment in Chicago and Houston like big cities is always costly. Install your own fire pits at home and love the way you live.
