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.

Earls Kitchen + Bar

Copy Link

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.

The Honor Bar

This eatery is a welcome laid-back respite from Highland Park Village’s swank overload. Grab a no-frills, yet delicious hamburger, and cozy up to the outdoor fireplace with a blanket in one of Honor Bar’s comfy Adirondack chairs.

Henry's Majestic

Copy Link

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.

Henry’s Majestic Patio

The Dubliner

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.

Veritas Wine Room

Copy Link

The fireplace at this Henderson Avenue staple is surrounded by comfy chairs, offering an extremely popular place to congregate on a cold evening. Sure, you could crack open a bottle of wine at home, but Veritas almost certainly has your home cellar beat by a mile in terms of selection; plus, they'll make you a fancy cheese and charcuterie plate.

Cosmo's

A perennial East Dallas favorite, Cosmo’s cheery 1960s atmosphere belies killer Vietnamese food cooking up in the kitchen. Grab a banh mi sandwich and a beer and snuggle into the couch right next to the cozy fireplace in the corner.

Upside West Village

This swanky new cocktail bar in the Canopy by Hilton Hotel boasts incredible views of the Dallas skyline from the eighth floor. The space offers indoor seating at tables and the actual bar, but the action goes down on the beautiful terrace, complete with outdoor sofa seating and a beautiful — and effective — fireplace (see lead photo).

The Rustic

This enormous indoor-outdoor restaurant and bar boasts several fire pits in its large yard. And really what better way is there to take in a show on the outdoor stage than with a chilly beer in hand in front of some toasty flames?

The Mansion Bar

Copy Link

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...)

Bowen House

Copy Link

A fireplace in the main dining room near the stunning bar area keeps things nice and warm this time of year. Grab one of several tables close to the flames with escargot, crab deviled eggs, or a cheeseburger in hand, along with one of the establishment’s killer cocktails.

Kennedy Room

Copy Link

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.

Backyard Dallas

Copy Link

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.

Lee Harvey's

Copy Link

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.

Monica’s Mex-Tex Cantina

Copy Link

Restaurateur Monica Greene revamped the former Cedars Social with a brand new name and menu, but the interiors have stayed largely the same, including a swanky indoor fire pit that looks straight out of a Mad Men set and a more casual outdoor fire pit.
