A place for drink with a fireplace

Hello Hello

I have a date tonight and it is the 11th hour... Any place in the city that will not be too stuffy and or busy with a fireplace for drinks?

  1. James's Gate in JP on South Street. Great cozy neighborhood bar w/fireplace.

    1. Is Salem too far? If not, then head to the Hawthorne Hotel in downtown Salem. There is a bar/restaurant off the lobby called the Tavern. Nice fireplace with a couch (I think) in front.

      1. if cambridge is close by the Red House in Harvard square has a nice little bar room with a fire place. as does Upstairs on the Square.

          Seconded. The Red House is a great option.

        2. If Peabody is not too far, I love the Hardcover they have a nice bar with fireplace

            The Hardcover is easy to drive to - Rte. 1 North.... another place I thought of is The Fireplace, 1634 Beacon St., Brookline.

          2. Not sure which of these places will have their fireplaces going tonight, but...

            Christopher's in Cambridge has a fireplace in the restaurant area.
            Clery's in the South End has one, too.
            I think the Fox and Hound in Quincy has one, but don't quote me on that.

            Have fun, wherever you go!

              There's an article in today's Metro also listing the Bristol, Intercontinental, Upstairs on the Sq and Met Club.

                the Metropolitan on Rt. 9 in Chestnut Hill has a nice cozy little fireplace next to the bar with a couple of small tables right there. Food is great and drinks are nice too.
