The weather is definitely starting to turn colder in Lansing.

We don't know about you, but we actually had to pull out the ice scraper to get the ice off the windshield for the first time so far this season. But just because it's getting colder, doesn't mean that we don't want to sit outside and enjoy an evening out.

If you want to enjoy a meal or drink outside but are afraid because it's getting a bit chilly out, no worries! We have you covered.

We have a feeling that heated outdoor seating is going to be a big hit with patrons this winter. With COVID, some people are still uncomfortable with dining indoors, so heated outdoor seating gives them the option to patronize a business while remaining safe. Win-win!

Igloos are the New Hot Thing

These businesses are getting creative with how they keep their customers warm, too! Some places feature tables that have a fire right on them. Others will feature enclosed igloos, like this one from BAD Brewing Company below!

Take a look through the list below and find out which ten greater Lansing area restaurants will feature heated outdoor seating this winter! If we missed any restaurants that you know of, please let us know by sending us a message on the station app of Facebook page.
