Houston's Top 10 Bars to Warm Your Ass Up
Monnalisa Bar at Hotel Sorella is a great place to warm your ass up, because you don't even have to step outside to get a glow from the firepit. It's right inside the bar safe from the frigid temps, and close enough to the beer that you won't feel any of the heinous weather waiting just outside the doors.

3. BROOKLYN ATHLETIC CLUB
Not only is Brooklyn Athletic Club a chic place to have drinks, even in the winter, it's got a covered patio and firepits. There's always the option to do a little healthy working out by way of bocce ball or croquet, but really now. Just relax your cold little rear into one of the comfy wicker chairs by the firepit and call it a day.

2. BIG STAR BAR
Big Star Bar's ridiculous firepit is almost as much of a draw as the well-rounded beer list, especially on a cold December night. You'll usually find a random group of Big Star patrons huddled around the pit, all warming their hands while downing ice-cold beers. It's a little winter wonderland, in a very Big Star sort of way.
