Let’s face it, you and your pup can only watch so many reruns and Netflix marathons! Bars, breweries, and wineries in Virginia are steadily becoming more dog friendly. Dog-friendly happy hours or Yappy Hours, as some call them, are taking off in NoVA. Don’t worry if you can’t find an official Yappy Hour we have some dog-friendly hot spots that just might do the trick. If you and your friends want to grab a drink with your four-legged pal then you’re in luck.
Cantina Marina – DC: This beach inspired bar is one of the best places to catch a sunset and sip with your best pal. Check out the dog biscuit bar for your pup while you drink in the maritime views.
Shake Shack – Throughout Virginia and DC: Not only does this good ole’ burger chain love dogs as much as we all do, dogs actually have their own mini-menu*! Don’t miss out on the Bag O’ Bones or the Pooch-ini. Cheers to you and your pup!
Barrel Oak Winery – Delaplane: Barrel Oak Winery is well known for being a haven for dog lovers and wine lovers alike. If the name, BOW, is any indication your pup is in for a good time. Gather a group of your friends and their furry pals and enjoy scenic views, great wine, and live music for a good time.
Crooked Run Brewing – Leesburg: Crooked Run has an English Setter on property for you and your dog to play with. Well-behaved people and their pups are welcome to partake on the patio. This brewery doesn’t sell food, so don’t forget to pack a picnic with extra dog biscuits!
There are many bars, wineries, and breweries in Virginia that are super dog friendly! Some venues have their own established Yappy Hours, but you can unofficially start your own at a dog-friendly place as long as you have good friends. Don’t forget to check out your local dog lovers Meetup page for even more dog-friendly social activities.
