The Lounge at The Roundhouse – Beacon
Step off Main Street and let the hustle and bustle melt away as you warm up at The Lounge at the Roundhouse. Claim a spot by the fireplace, order a fancy cocktail and some bar bites, and admire the beautiful view of the falls from indoors. The perfect spot to meet up with friends or just enjoy a quiet moment alone.

Oliver Kita – Rhinebeck
This artisan, hand-crafted chocolate shop already has quite the reputation for its unique flavors and organic treats, but did you know that they have some of the most unbelievable hot chocolate we’ve ever tasted?! The secret hot chocolate concoction is the perfect rich treat to warm up and indulge.

Hudson Beach Glass – Beacon
Some of you may be scratching your heads at this one, but the heat from the furnace in this glass blowing studio is no joke! Whether you’re taking a class or just popping in for a visit this winter, Hudson Beach Glass is a great place to defrost while you admire the beautiful and unique pieces of glass-blown art.

It doesn’t just have to be hot beverages that warm your core, sometimes a nice glass of red wine is all you need.
