Warm Up: 14 Baltimore Bars with Fireplaces

Warm Up: 14 Baltimore Bars with Fireplaces

It’s cold and (sorta) snowy outside. Consider two options: you can sit at home in front of your TV watching the Yule Log, or you can go warm up in front of a real fire at a local bar. Even though we happen to be huge Yule Log fans, the choice is obvious. Check out 14 of our hearth-worthy picks below.

Birds of a Feather: Nothing will warm you up more than a fireplace and 120 single malt scotches (1712 Aliceanna St.; 410-675-8466).

Bond Street Social: With several glass enclosed fireplaces, and a full on firepit in one dining area, Bond Street is combining the best of the ski lodge atmosphere with social drinking and munching (901 S Bond St.; 443-449-6234).

Brewer’s Art: Is there anything awesome this place doesn’t have? Art, Belgian beer, Korean short ribs, a fireplace. It’s almost unfair (1106 N. Charles St.; 410-547-6925).

Brewer’s Cask: The working fireplace at the end of the bar adds to the comfortable atmosphere at this Federal Hill beer bar (1236 Light St.; 410-273-9377).

The Dizz: The stone fireplace at The Dizz is a perfect complement to the homey atmosphere at this Charles Village pub (300 W. 30th St.; 443-869-5864).

Leinenkugel’s Beer Garden: The new Power Plant Live! beer garden may seem like one of the last places you’d want to go in the winter, but with a retractable roof, a large fireplace and over 30 craft beers on tap, it’s actually an ideal destination in the winter months (34 Market Pl.; 443-208-3316).

Pub Dog: This Federal Hill dog-themed brewpub is known for its personal pizzas and beer, but what really sets it apart from other drinkeries in the neighborhood is its roaring blaze (20 East Cross St.; 410-727-6077).

Red Maple: Cocktails next to the fire is the name of the game in this 1920s-style Mount Vernon rowhome (930 N. Charles St.; 410-547-0149).

Regi’s American Bistro: The well-known outdoor patio here is covered and heated in the colder months, but the indoor hearth is the real place to be when winter hits (1002 Light St.; 410-539-7344).

Waterfront Hotel: Settle into a cozy brunch at Waterfront near the upstairs fireplace and enjoy the beautiful harbor views in one of the oldest buildings in Baltimore (1417 Thames St.; 443-681-5310).

The Wharf Rat: Located in a building that has supposedly been around since the 1700s, drinking by the 12-ft. wide fireplace here is highly recommended on days when temps turn frigid (801 S. Ann St.; 410-276-9034).

Wit and Wisdom: Look forward to escaping the cold winter weather in this waterfront tavern with two large fireplaces, a seasonal cocktail list, and ample comfortable seating (200 International Dr.; 410-576-5800).

Woodberry Kitchen: There’s no better fireside perch to enjoy delicious dishes made from the best local, sustainably-sourced ingredients (2010 Clipper Park Rd.; 410-464-8000).

Ze Mean Bean Cafe: Nearly 100 wines, Eastern European cuisine, and a toasty fireplace make Ze Mean Bean a must-go year round (1739 Fleet St, 410-675-5999).
