If you’re a pup parent then you know what it means to leave your beloved pet behind when you venture out of the house. It means sad, puppy-dog eyes and guilt pulsing through your veins. It means separation anxiety – for both you and your pooch. It means the constant pang of wondering if your dog is happy, comfortable, hungry…
Okay, we may be a tad dramatic. But you get the point. And if this feeling resonates with you then you’re going to want to check out the restaurant scene in the Pike District because it’s DOG-FRIENDLY!
Yes, you read that right. Some Pike District restaurants are proud to serve customers as well as accommodate their four-legged friends on outdoor patio spaces!
And since we can’t think of anything better than eating yummy food on spacious and relaxing patios in the Pike District with your pup, we put together a list of 5 of our favorite dog-friendly patios that we know you (and Fido!) will love.
Shouk – Vegan and vegetarian friends, this is the place for you. All of the food at Shouk is 100% plant-based and 100% delicious. If you haven’t tried it yet, grab your pup and get going! You’ll thank us later.
7 Locks Brewing – Granted, 7 Locks Brewing is more beer-centric than food-centric, but that’s fine by us! We can’t get enough of their delicious beer or live music on Saturday nights. And 7 Locks is sure to get bonus points from your pup because the entire outside AND INSIDE is dog-friendly!
Hello Betty – Two words. Yappy Hour. Yappy Hour is a free, monthly event at Hello Betty that takes place from 3-6pm with half-off specialty cocktails, wine, and beer, and as much water as your dog’s heart desires. Don’t worry if you can’t make Yappy Hour, though, because Hello Betty always welcomes dogs on their patio!
Julii – Julii’s patio is one of our favorite patios. With ample space and abundant shade, it is sure to be one of your dog’s favorites, too. So go! Go now!
Summer House – We obviously had to include Summer House! Be sure to bring your pup to this Pike District staple for a delicious meal, scrumptious drinks, and a fun Summer dog-day.
