60 NYC bars with fireplaces
Fireplaces are great for two things: 1) traveling via Floo Powder when you're not yet old enough to apparate, and 2) drinking Scotch near when it's snowing in NYC. Helping you dominate the latter harder than Harry at a Triwizard Tournament (so, really hard), is this epic list of 60 fireplace-equipped drinkeries, all arranged by neighborhood in case you want to find the one closest to your apartment, or, more awesomely, get your fireplace bar crawl on.
