Warm Up by a Firepit this Winter

The best places to drink outside in Bend this winter. Maybe Bend denizens are part penguin, because even in the sub-freezing temperatures, Central Oregonians like to be outside. Try one of these Bend restaurants that offer four-season patio dining with fire pits and heaters to keep you warm(ish).

10 Barrel

Bend | Open until 11 p.m., midnight on Saturdays

At 10 Barrel on the west side of town, the large fireplace in the middle of the patio keeps everyone warm on the cold nights. In the winter, it’s the perfect place to drink the seasonal Pray For Snow while you think of fresh tracks for tomorrow.

O’Kanes at McMenamins

Bend | Weekdays open until 11 p.m., weekends open until midnight

At O’Kanes at McMenamins, the fire pits are big enough to share. Stay warm outside and make new friends while you try one of the seasonal brews or sip on a warm drink. Inside, you can also watch a movie or sit in the soaking pool.

Bend Brewing Company

Bend | Open until 10 p.m. every day

The heated benches at Bend Brewing Company are the next best thing to a firepit. The newly renovated riverside pub has a warm fire on the outdoor patio to enjoy while you try one of the region’s original craft brews.

Crux Fermentation Project

Bend | Open until 10 p.m. every day

While Crux is popular in the summer for its outdoor space, the patio is also open throughout the winter. With fire pits snapping and popping, award winning ales and food trucks to keep you fed, Crux should definitely be on your winter list.

Worthy Brewing

Bend | Open until 9 p.m. weekdays, 10 p.m. on weekends

The recently renovated Worthy has an expansive patio with clean burning gas-powered fire pits. It’s one of the few craft breweries where you can eat on the east side of Bend. Complete the circle by ordering one of several delicious wood over pizzas and pair it with the session-able Pre Funk Pale Ale.Wild Ride Brewing.
