Do you enjoy bringing your dog along when you go out in the evenings or on the weekends? While the Mecklenburg County Health Department may have made it clear that dogs are not permitted in brewery taprooms, there are still plenty of great spots in the area where you can bring your furry friends. To help you plan accordingly, following are a few of the top Charlotte establishments where your dogs will always be welcomed.
The Dog Bar – The idea of this spot is pretty much genius. Essentially, The Dog Bar is a dog park that also serves alcohol, making it a win-win for everyone! Your dogs can run around and play either inside or outside. Plus, the outdoor patio provides a misting system during the warm months in Charlotte, and this area is both enclosed and heated once the temperatures drop in the winter. The Dog Bar also has plenty to offer you. The drink menu features an impressive selection of beer, liquor, and wine. There is also frequently live music at this NODA hangout, making it the perfect spot to relax with your friends and dogs.
Lucky Dog Bark and Brew – This dog-friendly establishment has three convenient locations in the Charlotte area, making it easy for you to find a gathering spot that will welcome your dog. While you enjoy a drink at the bar, your dog can enjoy the indoor/outdoor dog park. And while food is not prepared at Lucky Dog Bark and Brew, they often work with food trucks and local restaurants to provide you with delicious take out options. Additionally, dog services such as baths, boarding, and day care are also available here.
Park Road Books – Bringing your dog along with you doesn’t always have to involve hanging out at a bar. What if you are looking for a new book to start reading? Are you interested in joining a local book club? Park Road Books is referred to as Charlotte’s favorite book store – not only for you, but for your furry friends too! You might even meet Yola, the store dog, when you visit.
