When it's the dead of winter and there are more icicles than rays of sun, fireplaces can be a lifeline. Because most New Yorkers don't have the luxury of a roaring fire in their living rooms, we are forced to find warmth out in the windy wilds of New York City. Luckily, there are dozens of bars and restaurants with fireplaces, but sometimes you just need some place to stop in to warm up without getting served at a table. Most of our favorite fireplaces can be found in bars, but also in the lobbies of hotels, meaning they don't require reservations or cover charges to sit next to.
