Staunton’s Coziest Corners

Brrrrr. Winter is making its presence known! If you can’t resist the urge to curl up after a long day in the snow, come to one of these cozy spots for drinks, dinner, or to hang with your friends. Enjoy toasty drinks, comfortable furniture and most importantly, some crackling fireplaces. Make the most out of the winter weather!


hotel 24 south / 24 South Market Street

One of our favorite winter pleasures is basking in a fire’s warm glow while enjoying a seasonal beverage and comfort food. The 1924 Lounge offers casual drinks, dining and a flickering fireplace just off the lobby of the beautifully decorated Hotel 24.

The Store / 221 North Lewis Street

Toast your toes by the fireplace in The Store as you sip your coffee and wait for your farm-to-table breakfast. This store and restaurant connects local farms to the community, so you know your food will be fresh! Enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner, and local beer, wine, and cider. Pick up some baked or canned goods to savor at home.

Stable Craft Brewing / 375 MADRID ROAD, Waynesboro

At Stable Craft Brewing, you have a choice of basking in the glow of the taproom fireplace or renting an igloo and partying like they do up north with your nearest and dearest. This brewery hosts regular seasonal activities, offers an excellent taplist, and serves a full menu.

Seven Arrows Brewing / 2508 Jefferson HWY 1, Waynesboro

It’s cold outside, so lounge in front of the fireplace and enjoy a varied menu of craft beer at Seven Arrows Brewing. Hungry? Order something delicious from onsite Nobos Kitchen, specializing in appetizers, burgers, and favorites like the meatloaf mac and cheese and the Cuban sandwich.

Barren Ridge Vineyard / 984 Barren Ridge Rd, Fishersville

People head to Barren Ridge Vineyards for the terrific wine and incredible views from the patio, but in winter, the huge stone fireplace warms up the tasting room and provides a lovely backdrop. Bring snacks and enjoy wines by the tasting, glass, or bottle.

Other Cozy Spots

Beverley St. Cigar / 2 E Beverley St.

If you enjoy a fine cigar and good company, grab a big chair in the Beverly St. Cigar smoking lounge. Enjoy free wi-fi, watch the game or the bustle of downtown through the huge windows, and pick up some last-minute gifts like flasks, pipes, hats, and cigars.

Mill Street Grill /1 Mill Street

There’s no fireplace here, but the Mill Street Grill has been serving up coziness and delicious food since it opened in 1992. Grab a booth or a seat at the bar and warm your belly with some comfort food.

By & By / 140 E. Beverley St

If you’re looking to warm up while shopping and exploring downtown Staunton, stop into centrally-located By & By. Cuddle on the couch and watch the city life outside the window while enjoying coffee, desserts, grilled sandwiches, and craft beer and wine.
