With two (give or take) months left of freezing temps and snowstorm warnings, you're going to get a little tired of staying in. Luckily, these spots will take your mind off the gloomy weather and transport you straight to summer.
Entering The Yachtsman is like stepping into a bar on the beach, with surfboards and surfing imagery hanging on the wooden walls. Order any of the aptly named cocktails—like the Bahia Bikini Bottom or Bird of Paradise Fizz—for the full tiki bar experience. You won’t even remember it’s below freezing outside. 1444 Frankford Ave., 267-251-3234
Nothing says summer like a juicy hot dog or burger straight from the grill. But this time, you don’t have to worry about your beach body. End your meal with an adult milkshake, because why not? 1050 N. Hancock St., 215-964-9009
A Cuban- and Caribbean-style restaurant with a cocktail called the Bikini Martini? We’re there. The drink—made with vodka, pineapple rum, grenadine, and pineapple juice—pairs perfectly with a helping of guacamole and plantain chips. Sounds like a vacation to us. 1141 Pine St., 215-592-0363
Travel to the boardwalk with an in-house jukebox, arcade games, pool, and darts. Order a hot dog or hamburger, wash it down with the Sandstrom cocktail—bourbon, passion fruit puree, grenadine, and lemon juice—and you'll feel like you’re at the shore enjoying a break from the beach. 224 S. 15th St., 215-985-9600
Situated by the water and grilling up food on a 72-inch rotisserie, this spot is a summer BBQ amplified. Have a cocktail made with fresh juices or a beer float alongside favorites like spit-roasted veggies, grilled chicken wings, and pork ribs. 4503 S. Broad St., 215-282-3184
