Cozy Up at These Chicago Restaurants with a Fireplace to This Fall

chicago restaurants with firepit

The transition from summer to fall is always a bittersweet one here in Chicago: in trading our rooftops and pools for sweaters and fireplaces, there’s an element of coziness in the air that feels uniquely Midwestern. The Cubs and Sox close out their seasons, and the Bears suit up for another year at Soldier Field.

Not all parts of the country have the luxury of experiencing changing leaves and crisp autumn weather, making fall a unique asset of the midwest. And just as summer is synonymous with patios, fall gives us a chance to curl up next to a fireplace.

4 Chicago Restaurants with Great Fireplaces

  1. Park & Field (Logan Square): With indoor and outdoor spaces (and a bottomless brunch!), Park & Field is a great option for a casual group hang, after work happy hour or weekend patio post-up. Their outdoor fire pits even come with blankets – so you can enjoy the great outdoors while staying cozy.
  2. Ella Eli (Lakeview): Boasting inventive, delicious shared plates and a dining area that could rival the most relaxing of living rooms, Ella Eli’s crown jewel is a fireplace that makes the space (and the food) even more comfy.
  3. Hopleaf (Andersonville): This locals-only bar has an extensive beer list and excellent food. With plenty of space for a big group of friends, its fireplace is a great counterpart to the large outdoor patio that stays open well into the autumnal months.
  4. The Dawson (River West): The Dawson has multiple indoor and outdoor fireplaces, making the multi-level restaurant’s spaces as dynamic as its food. Make sure you grab a reservation – this is a popular spot that fills quickly!
