It's getting colder in Kansas City, which is putting even more pressure on bars and restaurants as coronavirus numbers continue to rise. Many of our favorite spots are working to give guests a little bit of warmth while keeping them safer outside. Check out these spots around the area that have firepits, heaters, partially enclosed tents and other options for outdoor comfort. Check back often, as we'll be adding to this list as more options crop up, and you may want to check in with your destination before you bundle up to go somewhere – things are constantly changing!
