Favorite Year Round Bars/Cafes
This roundup allows dogs to come inside all year long. You read that right. all. year. long.
D.B.A.– 41 1st Ave, New York, NY
Craft beers on tap with an enclosed and covered patio in the back that is heated and open all year long. It is not uncommon to see a pup’s birthday pawty or doodle/grif/chi meetup on any given day.
Boris & Horton – 195 Avenue A, New York, NY
NYC’s first DOH-approved, dog friendly coffee shop, and they just expanded so there is even more space to gather with your pup. Check out their website for upcoming pup friendly events!
Lucky Dog – 303 Bedford Ave, Brooklyn, NY
Grab a pint with your furry friend at this Brooklyn dive bar. Dogs are welcome to come inside in the colder months and in the open air beer garden or street facing patio in the warmer months.
Super Seasonal Restaurants (Patios)
These restaurants allow your pup in their outdoor spaces. They are seasonal, so be sure to check ahead that they are open!
Ellington in the Park – Riverside Park (by W 105th Street), New York, NY
This is my favorite neighborhood spot to hang out in the summer with my pawrents and it’s right inside Riverside Park. You have the perfect view of the Hudson River, and my hoomans love the sangria. Across the way is the 105th Dog Park. Everyone wins!
Shake Shack – Madison Square Park, New York, NY
OK so Shake Shack has something that no other restaurant has…poochini!!! The BEST doggy treat in the city. Hoomans grab a burger, doggos grab an icy treat, all with an iconic view of the Flatiron building.
Best Dog Stores
Here are a couple of my favorite stores that carry the latest and greatest in NYC dog fashion.
Love Thy Beast
Every dog parent I know in NYC has a LTB bag…so of course my mom had to get one too. But honestly, it’s my favorite bag to be carried in when we’re on the subway or taking an Uber. Follow them on Instagram to be in the know about their pop up sales!
Dog & Co
This is my mom’s favorite place to shop for me. It has a variety of cool kid clothes for pups of all sizes and in a variety of price points. Also the staff are the friendliest and most helpful in the biz. They have great seasonal sales, too!
Isn’t NYC such a grand place to be a dog? I hope to see you at one of my favorite hangouts soon!
