Chef Nick Badovinus created a solid go-to dining destination for no matter where you are in the Metroplex, since there’s a handful of outposts spread throughout. The location at The Star in Frisco is special in that it has a chic fire pit on its spacious patio. So belly up to the pit with an order of oysters, brisket nachos, or hamachi crudo and a glass of wine in hand.

This Legacy West eatery is equally enjoyable indoors and out, however, opting for the patio offers the chance to cozy up to a rather large fire pit. Settle into one of the outdoor settees surrounding the fire with a steak, burger, tacos, pizza, or rice bowl — Earl’s has a bit of everything.

There’s really not a bad spot at Henry’s Majestic, but those seeking the warmth of a fiery blaze should head to the dog-friendly patio to warm themselves near the outdoor fireplace. Snag great cocktails and elevated eats like prime ribeye, halibut, and pork belly bucatini pasta, plus some more casual fare like a bone marrow-spiked burger, a meatball sandwich, and fish tacos.

One of the city's longest-standing Irish pubs offers plenty of opportunities to warm up: there's a fireplace in the corner, a huge selection of Scotch and Irish whiskey, and tasty hot drinks like a classic Irish Coffee or the Knox Chox, hot cocoa spiked with butterscotch schnapps.

The fireplace at this Henderson Avenue staple is surrounded by comfy chairs, offering an extremely popular place to congregate on a cold evening.

This swanky new cocktail bar in the Canopy by Hilton Hotel boasts incredible views of the Dallas skyline from the eighth floor.

Feeling fancy? Warm your bones by the grand fireplace in the swanky Mansion Bar while sipping a pumpkin Old Fashioned or gin & housemade tonic and munching on an order of crispy Texas grit fries. (Then again, you could also opt for a $32 glass of Cab and $195 caviar tasting trio...)

11. Bowen House

1002, 2614 Boll St

(214) 484-1385

Got a hot date you need to keep, er, hot? Cozy up next to the gas fireplace at this intimate -- and by intimate, we mean 350 square feet -- Uptown bar with a craft cocktail or glass of Champagne. If all else fails, there's always Fireball shots.

13. Backyard Dallas

505 N Good Latimer Expy
Dallas, TX 75204

To be clear, Backyard is more like a greenhouse than an actual outdoor space given that it’s covered and mostly closed in, yet the dog-friendly Deep Ellum bar offers several fire pits to cozy up to, along with games like shuffleboard and corn hole. This place gets insanely packed (and noisy) on game days, be forewarned.

14. Lee Harvey's

1807 Gould St
Dallas, TX 75215

Visit Website

Lee Harvey’s keeps the fire pits roaring on its front lawn, especially during winter months. Grab pub fare inside the dive bar like panini, burgers, and baskets of fries, and sneak back out to the front to grab a picnic table near the fiery action.
