Even though we’re already looking forward to spring here at Hville Blast, we know that there’s still quite a few chilly days ahead.

If you’re still looking to enjoy the great outdoors and a great meal at the same time, there’s hope.

These 15 spots around Huntsville and Madison bring the heat with their cozy heated patios and igloos.

1. Prohibition Rooftop Bar & Grill

Prohibition has become a Madison favorite ever since its opening last fall. Their rooftop bar and grill with a 1920’s vibe serves up eclectic eats and plenty of fun “libations,” as they call them. The rooftop is open no matter the weather, with large heaters to keep everyone cozy.

2. Stovehouse

Stovehouse is one of Huntsville’s go-to’s that satisfies the whole party. They’ve got plenty of options for everyone, with barbecue, Mediterranean, Chinese and American food. On chilly evenings, the heaters and fire pits keep things warm so you can enjoy the food and the frequent live music events.

3. Baker & Able

Baker & Able is home to one of the most stunning views of downtown Huntsville—especially at night. There’s plenty of cozy spots inside, but it’s hard to pass up the igloos on the rooftop deck. Be sure to snag a reservation—they’re in popular demand.

4. Domaine South

Domaine South is a local gem tucked on the square in downtown Huntsville that you can’t go wrong with. Their wine and cheese tastings are top-notch, and their sandwiches and charcuterie boards are as creative as they are delicious. They’ve got patio heaters so you can enjoy the downtown vibe while staying warm.

5. BarVista

Located at the top of the AC Hotel in downtown Huntsville, BarVista is another spot with a breathtaking view. This one overlooks Big Spring Park and has plenty of room (and heaters!) to enjoy their upscale eats and signature cocktails.

6. BeeZr

Beezr is a downtown Huntsville spot with eats from multiple small businesses inside—Northside Coffee, Hippea Camper, Champagne Taco Kitchen and Chandlers Ford Brewing. Outside, though, they’ve got a patio with heaters—and, as a bonus, it’s dog-friendly.

7. Champy’s

Some of the best chicken around. (Champy’s of Madison / Facebook)

Champy’s Chicken in Madison is a fun spot for juicy chicken and Southern sides like baked beans, mac and cheese and fried pickles. The vintage vibes and homey feel extend to the porch, where you’ll be plenty warm thanks to the patio heaters.
