Austin usually doesn’t get that much chilly weather, but sometimes, just sometimes, temperatures do dip, which means it’s time to turn the heat up. That makes it the perfect time to enjoy fireplaces and firepits at Austin restaurants and bars, for those who choose to dine out.

Warm up with Eater’s picks for the city’s best restaurants with amazing fireplaces and outdoor firepits (it’s Austin, after all). Find an elegant one at Jeffrey’s, seek out comfort food and flames at Moonshine Patio Bar & Grill, explore the sleek fires over at the Living Room, and others.

Other ways to stay toasty include indulging in hot cocktails, cups of coffee, tea, and hot chocolates.

Is there a great fireplace or firepit missing from the map? Let Eater know through the tipline or within the comments.
