Hands down one of the most stylish cocktail lounges in the Valley. The completely refurbished hotel and restaurant in Beacon offers a taste of modern comfort including oxtails tots, deviled eggs with pork crackling and sriracha, expert barhand and a glowing fireplace.

Blu Pointe
Set on the Newburgh waterfront, the Pointe boasts sweeping views of the Hudson River which takes on arctic beauty in winter. Inside, the handsomely appointed lounge sports a large bluestone fireplace—the perfect setting to take off the chill with a well-crafted cocktail, $1 oyster specials and small plates to share–from Oysters Rockefeller to truffle-parmigiano fries.

Restaurant 1915 at the Bear Mountain Inn 
Take a winter hike at Bear Mountain State Park, then head inside to warm up in front of the Inn’s massive stone fireplace. The season calls for something hearty: Try the aptly named  “Hibernator”—a hefty three-cheese mac and cheese stuffed BBQ meatloaf served with roasted garlic smashed potatoes and sautéed spinach.

Canterbury Brook Inn
Be transported to a ski chalet in the Alps with a pot of cheese fondue—a signature of Chef/owner Hans Baumann. It’s perfect for a romantic dinner for two or for a group share. The menu combines Swiss-inspired dishes (goulash, schnitzel) with American classics. Reserve early for a table in front of one of the three fireplaces.

Harvest on Hudson
Stoke your appetite with a plate of bucatini and a side of comfort with a personal tabletop fireplace. The special fireplaces use ethanol and tempered glass, allowing diners to safely warm up.
