The forecast didn’t bring a blizzard, but Hearth! the herald angels delivered a December snow day: the perfect excuse to telework (or tackle some online Christmas shopping) by a fire. Here are three of the city’s coziest fireplaces:
1. Tabard Inn – Dupont
Deep couches, a specialty cocktail menu and a casual lounge where your wet wellies will quickly dry in front of a wood-burning fire are what you’ll find in this historic Washington hotel.
2. La Chaumiere – Georgetown
After shopping in Georgetown, pop into this French bistro where a stone fireplace anchors the dining room making nearly every table fireside.
3. Murphy’s Pub – Alexandria
There is a already a countdown for St. Patrick’s Day at this popular ale house (96 days, if you’re wondering), but nothing feels more like Christmas than Old Town dressed in snow, and the jingle of clanking Guinness bottles raised in cheers to a snow day.
