Dinner and drinks on the patio don’t have to end when winter weather arrives in Missouri. Igloos, tents and fire pits provide an al fresco experience – even when the temperatures drop.
Check out these places where winter-friendly patios provide a cozy dining spot:
The weather outside may be frightful, but the dining is delightful in a personal igloo at Vantage Rooftop Lounge and Conservatory at Hotel Vandivort in Springfield. Each igloo can accommodate up to six people, and space heaters let you control the temperature. You can also get toasty around a rooftop fire pit.
