Sometimes a PetParent just needs to get out to meet friends and grab a cocktail after a long work week. But our pets have spent a long week waiting at home for our return, so it’s a lot more fun if we can hit the town with our furry friends in tow! Here are some of the best dog friendly bars in NYC just waiting for you and your pup to try them out this summer.
d.b.a is such a bar that they don’t even serve small plates, appetizers or meals of any sort! Their menu is a contantly changing list of imported, specialty, and craft beers & scotches. Their gravel back garden is a nice little respite spot for you and your pooch to kick back and relax for an hour or two together.
As if the name alone wasn’t enough of a give away, Fetch Bar & Grill is a great dog-friendly venue to try this summer. They’ve got two locations in the NYC area. Fetch Bar & Grill has an awesome mission to help adoptable animals in the NYC area find their furever homes. Stop in for a meal and a drink, and browse their Adopt-A-Dog wall to find your next best friend.
This little neighborhood gem is a traditional Irish pub. They boast a broad menu of tasty meal options to help you start your weekend off right. You and your pup can enjoy a fine dining experience in the outdoor seating area and watch the night life float by. We guarantee your pup will be expecting you to pass a few tasty treats from your plate down to them while you both relax to the tunes of piano night floating by.
