The weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful — and who doesn’t want to cozy up next to a fireplace, maybe with a delicious holiday beverage in hand? That’s exactly what these Las Vegas venues have to offer this holiday season, as we’ve rounded up the coziest places in town where you can enjoy the crackle of the fire and bask in the hearth’s warm glow — or take a few Insta-worthy holiday selfies!
The Dorsey Cocktail Bar
Bookshelves filled with colorful books flank the fireplace at The Dorsey Cocktail Bar, a high-design space at The Venetian Resort Las Vegas with a rich palette of gold and black and a decidedly relaxed ambiance. Enjoy a cocktail — its menu of modern and classic libations was created by celebrity mixologist Sam Ross — while cozying up to the grand fireplace at this memorable nightspot.
Illuminated and towering bookshelves line the walls at the NoMad Library, an intimate space at NoMad Las Vegas, made excessively comfy with dim mood lighting, plush leather armchairs and banquettes, and a menu of comfort-food favorites and delightful cocktails. Sip on something delicious fireside at this sophisticated lounge.
Winter at the Terrace
A magical winter’s night isn’t complete without some quality time by the fire, so shake off the chill at Winter at the Terrace. An outdoor pop-up at Green Valley Ranch Resort & Spa, the festive lounge also features a holiday menu of craft libations and tasty bites.
Fireside Lounge at Peppermill Coffee Shop
Cozy up to the fireplace at the Peppermill Restaurant and Fireside Lounge, an iconic landmark with almost 50 years of history—and a long list of celebrity visitors including Dean Martin and Guy Fieri. The lounge features cozy couches surrounding a flaming pool centerpiece, a selection of tropical-inspired cocktails, and a diverse menu of diner favorites.
Whiskey Down at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino offers a speakeasy vibe with vintage flair, where visitors can lounge by its elaborate fireplace in plush leather sofas and oversized chairs.

Festive Flamingo Bar
The Flamingo Holiday Festival has covered the Flamingo Wildlife Habitat in twinkling lights and whimsical décor — including a crackling hearth at the Festive Flamingo Bar. Opening shop in the Wildlife Habitat’s Patio Bar, the fun pop-up offers guests seasonal beverages and sweet treats.
Park on Fremont
Park on Fremont is a delightful place to get cozy this holiday season, as its back patio features an impressive fireplace surrounded by garden tables and cushion-covered chairs. The bar and restaurant, located in the Fremont East Entertainment District, is known for its fantastic menu of comfort-food favorites, solid craft-beer list, and whimsical cocktails.

Gather around the fireplace at Silverton Hotel and Casino’s Shady Grove Lounge, which has been reimagined for the holiday season as the Bad Elf pop-up bar. Inspired by The Elf on a Shelf, the experience features a holiday cocktail menu and fun photo ops — including a decked-out Airstream and a sparkling Christmas tree.
Take in sweeping views of Downtown Las Vegas and the greater Las Vegas valley at Legacy Club. Situated on the 60th floor of Circa Las Vegas, the rooftop nightspot features fire pits and a cocktail menu (including some photo-worthy, shareable sips).
The Ice Rink
Even if you get a little chilly making rounds on The Ice Rink, you can warm up by a cozy blaze — hot cocoa in hand — at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. Perched high above the Strip, the space offers seasonal snacks and spectacular views, both of the Strip and classic holiday movies, on the resort’s marquee.
