Stay Warm with Overland Park's Many Firepit Patios
Sponsored by Visit Overland Park
They say you should eat, drink and be merry. Overland Park says it’s even merrier if you can eat and drink in front of a crackling firepit. If you’re not lucky enough to have a roaring bonfire in your backyard, Overland Park’s restaurants light up the fires and invite you to cozy up with a cocktail in front of one of their mesmerizing firepits.
Coach’s Bar & Grill
There are two Coach’s Bar & Grill locations in Overland Park. One off 135th Street will give you a firepit with a view. It has two outdoor firepit areas on the rooftop deck. If you prefer to stay closer to the ground, the Coach’s off Metcalf has two outdoor firepits with lounge seats.
Coach’s serves comfort-food-meets-sports-bar dishes with sports memorabilia lining the walls. Don’t want to go outside? Coach’s off 135th Street has a popular Fireplace Room that provides a warm, cozy atmosphere.
Recommended fireside cocktail: Missouri Horsefeather. Union Horse bourbon, lemon juice, bitters and ginger beer are the perfect combo for warmth.
Head to the rooftop of Pinstripes to relax in an Adirondack chair in front of the roaring firepit. If sitting and relaxing just isn’t your thing, gather friends to warm the old-fashioned way: staying in motion. Burn off some energy by playing at one of the ten bocce courts nearby. If bocce isn’t your game, there are eight bowling lanes downstairs. The menu is extensive and always changing with the seasons.
Recommended fireside cocktail: Old Fashioned. Bulleit rye whiskey, Italian cherry, orange slices, maple syrup, bitters and an orange garnish screams “firepit cocktail.”
Red Door Woodfired Grill
Nestled in south Overland Park, Red Door Woodfired Grill’s patio is fantastic for hanging out with friends. And they’re dog-friendly too! Red Door Woodfired Grill does it right with firepits and heaters. With arguably one of the best burgers in town, Red Door also offers an expansive cocktail menu. Sundays are popular for their half-priced wine.
Recommended fireside cocktail: The OG. Tito’s vodka, premium ginger beer and lime juice make up the simple yet classic cocktail. Red Door is known for its mule cocktails, so you can’t go wrong here.
