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 Manhattan).
Backyards in the city are hard to come by. D.B.A has that, plus a rotation of 16 draft beers that are sure to please your craft-brew loving pals. Plus they’re dog friendly.
Madison Square Park
Smack dab in the middle of Madison Square park you’ll find a Shake Shack oasis of burgers, shakes, and dog-friendly ice creams. Stop by the Madison Square Park dog run then hit up Shake Shack for some post-play refreshments.
Boat Basin Cafe
Upper West Side
The Cafe is located in Riverside Park at 79th Street overlooking the Hudson River. This seasonal spot is ideal for grabbing a drink to forget you’re even in the city.
Nothing says summertime quite like oysters and cocktails on a boat. That’s exactly what you’ll find on Pier 25 at Hudson River Park. Grand Banks is a floating oyster bar on the historic schooner Sherman Zwicker, and has panoramic views of the Hudson River and Downtown Manhattan.
Boulton & Watt
Lower East Side
If you’re looking for a solid local watering hole with good food Boulton & Watt is your place. With large portions, and a pup-friendly atmosphere it’s a win-win.
Grab a negroni and some excellent Italian with your pup at the always-busy Morandi in the West Village. This spot is sure to please if you’re into packed places in hip neighborhoods.
Forgtmenot is the kitschy, but-in-a-good-way, bar-restaurant you’ve been waiting for. With cocktails that are just fancy enough, food that satisfies, and outdoor seating for you and your best friend, it’s a great spot down on Division Street.
