If surviving long, brutal winters was an Olympic sport, Chicagoans would score gold year after year. Lucky for us, the best bars in Chicago transform into cozy hideouts to accommodate us. The best of the bunch even have warm, roaring fireplaces to really help us thaw from the frigid temps outside. From all-season rooftop bars to Michelin star restaurants in Chicago and beloved dives, these local hotspots have the best fireplaces in town. Grab a table near the flames, order a round of drinks and cozy up for the night.
