Though you might be tempted to hide by your radiator with seven seasons of The West Wing until April rolls around, there are plenty of bars in this city worth braving, thanks to their roaring fireplaces.
We've lauded the cocktails at this five-year-old Cobble Hill spot before, but for now, please turn your attention towards the Clover Club's wintry pièce de résistance : a roaring stone fireplace situated in the bar's back parlor room.
The East Village might have been overtaken by the city's fratastic overlords in recent years, but this 2nd Ave spot holds its own against the Loud and Proud, serving up casual beers and cocktails in an elegant parlor space.
The dimly lit East Village spot is somewhat ironically a prime for cold weather drinking. The bar has two working fireplaces, one of which is conveniently situated next to one of the bar's pool tables.
