With the weather outside getting frightful, finding a venue with a fireplace is nothing short of delightful.
Atlanta is home to plenty of watering holes, but not all of them are created equal. In an attempt to find Atlanta’s classiest or most popular bars with fireplaces, we reached out to a few of the city’s top influencers to see which pubs and eateries allow you to keep warm by a fire.
City Winery Atlanta
Located in Ponce City Market, City Winery Atlanta is a restaurant, urban winery, private-event space and music venue. The winery serves house-made wines by the glass or bottle created by urban Atlanta’s only winemaker, Travis Green.

Table & Main
If you’re in downtown Roswell and looking for a Southern dining experience with a well-stocked bourbon bar, Table & Main is a cozy restored homestead complete with an outdoor fireplace on lively Canton Street.

If you haven’t been to Park Tavern in Piedmont Park, you probably shouldn’t call yourself an Atlantan. This intown go-to has acted as an Atlanta melting pot since it was renovated and opened as a restaurant and special events facility in 1990.

Red Phone Booth
If you’re searching for that nostalgic feeling, Red Phone Booth is your spot. The speakeasy is a Prohibition experience featuring classic craft cocktails, small plates and an extensive cigar program with over 100 cigar selections in the walk-in humidor. Guests enter by securing a secret number and dialing it into a restored antique London red phone booth entryway. Red Phone Booth has two fireplaces: one fireplace in the front bar and another near the sofas in an area known as the Mafia Kitchen.
Red Phone Booth is open to the public. Guests must be 21 and over. You do not have to be a member to enjoy the Prohibition experience. However, to keep with the speakeasy theme, the bar doesn’t give out the code, so you either have to know a member or someone who knows the code.
17 Andrew Young International Blvd. NE, Atlanta. 404-228-7528, redphonebooth.com.
