Check out some of the best heated outdoor dining spaces in Columbus

And just like that, it’s cold in Central Ohio. Even though warm weather is decidedly in the rear-view mirror at this point, we now have heated patio season to look forward to. So dust off your favorite flannel or fall sweater, and take a look at some of our favorite heated outdoor spaces in Columbus.

Henmick Farm & Brewery

This brewery built on a family farm has quickly become a Columbus destination. With a massive indoor fireplace, Henmick also boasts a set of outdoor fire-pits. And while the pits themselves are fairly standard, it’s the scenery, more than eight open acres of farmland to wander about on, that make these stand out.


Cafe’s Round II

For those after sleek, modern vibes, this Grandview spot might be just for you. Round II’s patio features a fireplace embedded into the outdoor countertops where guests eat and drink. It’s the perfect spot to grab a bite and a glass of bourbon as you appreciate the cool autumn air.  


This popular Spanish-inspired eatery in German Village just celebrated its 25-year anniversary, and for good reason. Their bustling, ground-level outdoor patio is located in the heart of German Village, meaning you can take in the historic Columbus neighborhood while you eat. And you can stay warm while doing so due to a number of on-site outdoor heaters.


While Dublin’s Vaso is likely best-known for its array of temperature-controlled igloos, the cocktail bar and tapas spot also boasts some of the coolest fire pits in the Columbus area. Did we mention the eatery is located on the rooftop of the AC Hotel, offering one of a kind views of Dublin and beyond?

Antiques on High

Last but not least is the ultra-cool sour beer concept from the owners of Seventh Son. Its rooftop patio features a gas fireplace that is left on during the colder months. The spot also boats a pexiglass panel system to cover the rooftop bar and keep diners warm. The establishment typically leaves this open a crack in the fall to achieve, according to owner Colin Castore, “sweater weather”.
