Can I get a side of Beneful and a water bowl, please?
If you’ve ever wandered around the Big Apple, then you know that all that walking can leave you and your pooch parched. Luckily, there are plenty of dog-friendly bars that you can step into and rest those weary paws.
Check out these three pro-pooch bars that will get your dog’s tail wagging and wet your whistle at the same time.
1. South 4th Bar & Café – 90 South 4th Street, 718-218-7478 (map) - This dog-friendly bar is located on the south side of Williamsburg. With its inviting interior, this hometown bar features a movie night on Tuesdays for you and your pooch.
2. Fetch– 1649 Third Avenue, 212-289-2700 (map) – Just hearing this popular bar and grill’s name will clue you into how much they love dogs. The bar has even teamed up with Animal Haven, a no-kill animal shelter, adoption center and sanctuary, by featuring photos of adoptable pets and a mobile adoption van. The wall of the bar also features the prized pooches of the patrons that frequent Fetch.
3. The Growler – 55 Stone Street, 917-409-0251 (map) - With a dog as it’s mascot, there is no question that this popular new gastropub is dog-friendly. Dogs are welcome on the patio, where they’ll be offered dog treats and a drink from a communal water bowl.
It’s good to see that New Yorker’s are keeping their doors open to our four-legged friends, despite the health department’s recent adoption of a letter grade system for bar and restaurants last year, according to the NYTimes.
