Hot Toddy For Your Winter Chill!

As we all have experienced over the last couple of months, winter is cold, dark and somewhat anit-social! Where did all our friends go? At Social Scene, we encourage you to go out as much as possible and if that means you need a tasty warm beverage, we support that too.

One of our favorites is the infamous Hot Toddy! We have done some research in each of our cities of where you can find some quality Toddies to sooth your throat and spirits! So during this winter chill, make sure you chill with a Hot Toddy in your city or any one of the cities we connect people in!

In Uptown this Speakeasy feel neighborhood bar serves up a casual and relaxing environment, with Jukebox, screens and pool tables. The Hot Toddy is amongst friends and you will be too!

This is a cocktail bar in its truest form, celebrating the 19th pre-prohibition vibe with the best of ingredients and passion in all they create! We have heard rumors they have a create your own Hot Toddy! It's a must try as anyone who has a 5 star on Yelp deserves some TLC!

The Thin Man :

Given credit for the homey feel and welcoming patrons, it is easy to see why a cozy watering hole and a Hot Toddy go hand in hand! This is a small spot though, so be careful that certain hours might be quite busy! They are also known for their infused spirits! Yum!


Fort Worth

Bird Cafe :

Known for their small plates, we love the decor and the patio when the weather is nice. But when the weather is a tad chilly, try a Hot Toddy or Grammy’s Cider! Though you do not need to stop there, their drink menu has many options to appease the pallet!

Whiskey Business :

Small neighborhood bar with some great specials and live music! We say you can enjoy a Hot Toddy near a fire or hole in the wall. The staff is great and you only need good people to have a great time!

We could not find too many more options, I hope you reading this can add some!



Double Trouble Caffeine and Cocktails

Tasty small bites, sweet treats and warm Hot Toddy! They also carry other types of teas to indulge the pallet! This place is cozy and welcoming, why not invite the crew!

Julep Houston :

With southern fare and of course the delicious Mint Julep do not forget to visit in the summer! They also will serve you up a Hot Toddy in their own cozy Southern hospitality way! If you really feel like going all out with some great seafood, try the tower with your closest group of friends!

Public Services Wine & Whiskey

We love the combination of wine and whiskey, so this place for us was an instant hit. The friendly service and available selection will keep you coming back for more! One thing we absolutely love about this place (we love bringing people together for social events) are their classes to come and enjoy, sip and learn more about a spirit of interest!


Hotel Tango :

Heading from downtown, before you reach Fountain Square, you must stop at this distillery and bar! They have it all right in the tasting room and better yet they make their own from start to finish! What a fun way to warm the senses and support a local business! We also love that they feature flights so you can explore your taste buds with a variety of spirits!

Black Market :

One of our favorites since we first worked with them at our Indy Bourbon Trail event. Great menu of tasty bites and drinks! We love that they feature the Poor Teddy, a spin on a Hot Toddy but made with tequila! The staff is always great and its a nice cozy spot to the northern edge of all of Mass Ave nightlife hot spots!

Kansas City 

Harry’s Bar & Tables :

Classic go to in Kansas City’s Westport neighborhood. They have a nice patio in the summer, but for the cold Kansas City nights, you need to order an oldie but goodie Hot Toddy! On St Pat’s this is a community favorite as well as other events like Art Westport!

Thou Mayest :

Known for their coffee, they also brew up a nice and warm Toddy! Located in the Crossroads part of town, which is known for First Fridays and other fun art events, you will not only have a chance to relax and enjoy drinks onsite but take fine coffees and teas to go!

The Lowry:

When the Toddy is right on the menu, you know they are not messing around! They have great snacks on special from 3-6p and again from 10-midnight. An inspirational duo since 1993 (David Burley and Stephanie Shimp), they have opened many locations throughout the Twin Cities and we encourage you to visit them all! Highland Grill, Longfellow Grill, Edina Grill, 3 Squares, Scusi, Groveland Tap, Freehouse and Blue Barn to name a few more!




Located in Rutledge Hill, you can start with a Hot Toddy but you will not want to stop. The menu, both food and drinks and welcoming decor will keep you pleased for hours! This is a true Southern cooking experience, they will not let anything that did not come from the south in the doors! They extend this mantra to many of their drinks, also brewed or distilled in the south!
