There are a lot of places with fireplaces in Philly, but Devil’s Den, a beer bar in East Passyunk with some good bar food, has a double-sided fireplace that’s lit all winter long - meaning that no matter where you’re sitting, you’ll always have a view and some warmth. They also do a fire lighting ceremony at the beginning of each winter, and even when the summer hits and their fireplace is shut down, they still have $4 drafts that are well worth the visit.
