In case you haven't noticed, we are the midst of a snowpocalypse. St. Louis got around ten inches of snow, and even the snow plows are getting stuck. Add below-freezing temps, and you've got yourself a polar vortex (is that what that means?). Things are starting to clear up, though, and the best place to warm up is in front of a cozy fireplace with a drink in hand. If you can safely brave the roadways, head straight to one of these places.
Fox and Hounds Tavern at the Cheshire (6300 Clayton Road, Clayton; 314-647-7300)
Fox and Hounds Tavern is definitely somewhere you'd want to be in a snowstorm. The dark Victorian space may even make you feel like you're in London instead of Clayton. It's actually a re-creation of an old English home -- must be why it's so inviting. Relax by the huge stone fireplace and sip on your favorite whiskey.
