Cozy North Bay inn or restaurant bar open on Christmas day

pane | Dec 23, 2010 09:56 AM

For the past few years we've gone to the bar/lounge at Murray Circle early on Christmas afternoon for a bite and a drink after a morning hike. I'm interested in trying something new this year, and can travel further north, into Sonoma or Napa counties (but probably limited to a 1-1.5 hour trip from San Francisco).

I see that the very big places are open, like Meadowood, but I'm not sure if that's exactly the ticket. The ideal solution is cozy and unpretentious, will not require any kind of pre-planning or reservation, serves both food and cocktails, and dream of dreams--has a fireplace. m

Opentable's not of great help explaining atmosphere, and we're not looking for a reservation--any ideas?

Thank you!
