New York in the summer; It’s hot, it’s muggy, but somehow it’s the best. And the only way to top off an excellent summer in the city is by eating and drinking in the company of your best bud. Here are the Wild One approved spots for kicking it with your dog all summer long (in Brooklyn).
Lucky Dog is THE dog-friendly bar in Williamsburg. Yes, a lot of places in NYC are dog-friendly but that typically means just the seating area out front. Not Lucky Dog. Pups run the entire place, from the front porch, to the bar, to the backyard.
The Brooklyn Barge
Warm weather in Greenpoint means it’s Brooklyn Barge season. The Barge is a literal barge floating on the north end of the East River in the heart of Greenpoint. Be sure to get their early on weekends to get a good spot on the water with your pup.
Brooklyn Cider House
If you’re in the mood for a crisp cider and good food, Brooklyn Cider House is a great place to get both those things, pup in tow. Plus, check out their New Paltz location complete with apple picking, cider tastings and more.
Habana Outpost has all the irresistible Cuban cuisine as their SoHo Café Habana plus all the charm of the Fort Greene local. Come for great eats and backyard hangs.
Pig Beach is a dog-friendly Gowanus hot-spot serving BBQ classics and snacks. If your dog doesn’t like kiddos do note, on weekends there are lots of ‘em running around.
Formerly a tire shop, Mission Dolores has a lively, dive bar feel with pinball and games to be played. Grab a bag of chips at the bar or have food delivered, and hang out with you pup.
Pilot, sister boat from the Grand Banks team, lives in Brooklyn Bridge Park at Pier 6. Pilot has all the things you’d want from a bar in the summer, great drinks, great food, great atmosphere, and most importantly they’re dog friendly.
