The McKittrick Hotel's rooftop bar Gallow Green has transformed into a comfy, cabin-like getaway–The Lodge–for the winter. You won't have to go upstate to get those woodsy feelings. And while it's not technically a fireplace, The Lodge does have a fire pit that is both dreamy and cozy. You'll need a reservation to take advantage of it, and make sure to check out the McKittrick's performance schedule so you can visit during one of their popular magic shows or other events.
The winter chill has set in and many of us are either hibernating inside or getting from place to place bundled in enough layers to make the Michelin Man look svelte. Still, there are plenty of things to do in the winter—including ice skating, strolling snowy NYC parks or even heading out to a ski resort—that are worth the effort. After partaking in these chilly activities, you can warm up with a cup of hot chocolate or a boozy hot drink, or settle in next to one of these cozy fireplaces in NYC.
NYC has some great bars and restaurants with fireplaces where you can get a coveted fireside seat. For more toasty warm options, these fireplaces don’t necessarily require a reservation or an order, though a nice cocktail makes a fireside chat even better (and makes for a great winter date idea). Read on for our favorite places to stop in and warm up the next time you’ve caught a chill.
