5 Delicious, Dog Friendly Joints in NYC

March 9, 2016

It’s almost Spring! But let’s be honest, with the weather we’ve been having, we could easily stamp Spring on New York City already. With the sun out, and light jackets on, we are already excited about what we can do with our dogs in the city. In this nicer weather, there’s more great things to do! And with all that extra exercise, you’re bound to get a little peckish. While you’re on the go, here are 5 stops you can make with your dog to get something to eat, drink, or just to hang out!

The Levee, Williamsburg

Beer. Booze. Pool. Dogs. That’s what The Levee advertises to their patrons, and I personally think it’s the best way to draw in crowds. The bar is praised for it’s atmosphere—a little grungy, with quirks and a younger crowd—and apparently there is a well stocked CD jukebox. There is basic bar foods, and a never ending supply of cheese balls! And let’s not forget the dogs that roam around the premises.

Five Leaves, Greenpoint

Let’s say you’re looking for somewhere a little less crazy. Maybe you want to enjoy a brunch and an early alcoholic beverage with your friends, and your dog. Five Leaves has you covered! Located on Bedford Avenue, the joint has gotten a lot of hype. With a full bar, mouth watering menus (I took a peak at them all), there’s nothing better than seeing on Yelp: Dogs Allowed Yes. Is anyone free this Sunday?

Barking Dog, Upper East Side

Let’s slide into Manhattan for a spell, and visit the Barking Dog. It’s clear the establishment is dog friendly just by it’s name, and your pup can join you in the outside seating. Dog owners highly recommend this place for it’s menu, it’s prices, and of course… dogs. Barking Dog serves breakfast until 4pm, and crafts special desserts for you to enjoy! I wouldn’t mind stopping by for a quick lunch and dog kisses.

The Quarter, West Village

Sometimes, you want to treat your dog to a romantic evening out on the town. Show him that you really love him, that you cherish him, and that you want to take advantage of The Quarter‘s Martini Hour….
This establishment really shows the elegance of the West Village, and has a gorgeous side-walk seating area where you can Dine & Wine your special furry friend. On top of a Martini Hour, they offer private parties, oyster nights, and tacos!

Ray’s Candy Store, Alphabet City

After all the fine dining, you’re going to want dessert. Ray’s Candy Store is a small, owner run walk-in place that is famous for it’s eclectic variety, but delicious consistency. The store is praised for it’s rustic, and at times grungy charm, but people seem to always walk away happy! You can bring your pup through and pick up some egg cream, and maybe your pooch can enjoy a small lick of vanilla soft serve.
