The winter chill can deter even the most eager daters from venturing outside. In lieu of lonely hibernation, check out these fireplace-sporting spots to fire up the temperature AND the romance on your next MeetMoi date.
This swanky midtown bar is a great place to get cozy. The LIBRARY is a grand room with a sky-high ceilings, a vintage billiards table, antique furniture, and an enormous fireplace. After a few artfully prepared cocktails, head up to the Lodge at Private Park for a hot toddy or a custom creation from the hot chocolate bar!
This West Village bar boasts a decidedly understated vibe. Enjoy a gingerbread martini while surveying the works of local artists on the walls. A crackling fireplace in the dimly lit living room area is the perfect place to turn on the flirt with your date.
This historic townhouse turned upscale martini lounge is located in the heart of Grammercy Park. The sensual lighting and expansive martini menu encourages slow and steady fireside sipping. Whether you’re in for a pre-dinner pit stop or an end of the evening nightcap, Cibar will hit the spot.
Tillman’s has it all—soulful music, sexy ambiance, and upscale comfort food to inspire indulgence on all levels. Behind the unassuming doors awaits a modern, romantic restaurant peppered with old Harlem swagger. If you can’t catch a seat near the fireplace, the combination of live and DJ-spun jazz, underground hip hop, and R&B will surely heat things up.
