Everything about The Library Bar in The Rittenhouse Hotel screams winter, but in a good way, like one of those lavish castles from a Christmas movie that’s set in a non-existent, vaguely European-sounding country. There’s a fireplace, a bunch of books that we’re assuming haven’t been read in a very long time, and, most importantly, strong drinks to keep you warm. Their drinks and bar snacks change throughout the year, so even if it’s not fireplace season, it’s still worth a trip for a creative cocktail - as long as you’re cool with spending $18 on a drink.
