Why should your dog stay home while you have all the fun? There are tons of dog-friendly restaurants around Philly – here are some of the best places to hit up a Yappy Hour or dine al fresco with your pooch.

Bok Bar

Every Sunday is now “take your dog to school day” at Bok Bar, located on the scenic rooftop of the former Bok Vocational High School. The bar is open from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Sundays, and water bowls are available for the pubs, Middle Eastern bites and beer and wine for the humans.

Cantina Los Caballitos

Spice things up with your pup at Cantina Los Caballitos. The Mexican restaurant welcomes dogs with diners seated in the outdoor patio. Dogs receive a complimentary water bowl, while humans can chow on guac and tequila flights.

Cherry Street Pier

121 N Christopher Columbus Boulevard, Old City
With a nice breeze and gorgeous views of the Ben Franklin Bridge, the revamped Cherry Street Pier is one of the best places to hang for the summer. Although they must be kept on leashes, dogs are invited to join owners as they buy drinks from the bar carts and snag Indonesian food from Hardena and scoops of Little Baby’s Ice Cream.

Morgan’s Pier

221 N. Christopher Columbus Boulevard, Old City
That margarita will taste even sweeter this summer when you enjoy it at Morgan’s Pier’s Yappy Hour. The Delaware Riverfront destination holds monthly events for you and your pup. Free giveaways are enough to bring out the crowds at any event, but Morgan’s Pier partnered with Tito’s Handmade Vodka to ensure a fun time with specialty cocktails and all proceeds benefiting the PSPCA. Dogs will be available to adopt, as well.


227 S 18th Street, Rittenhouse
Bonjour, chiens. Of course the best Stephen Starr restaurant in Philly allows man’s best friend to dine by your side. The sceney eatery welcomes dogs in its outdoor dining area. Dogs receive a complimentary bowl of water, and after supper, you can take them for a romp through Rittenhouse Square across the street.

P.J. Clarke’s

601 Walnut Street, Washington Square West
Your happy hour is a little extra happy at P.J. Clarke’s, where four-legged friends are always invited to join you on the patio for the daily happy hour from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. In fact, you can dine with your dog outdoors at any time, weather permitting, and P.J. Clarke’s will provide your pup with a water bowl and treats.

Red Owl Tavern

433 Chestnut Street, Old City
Red Owl Tavern’s weekly Yappy Hour (Wednesdays, 5 to 7 p.m.) is an all-in-one relaxation destination for you and your pup. Dogs feast on a different fresh-made dish each week, including past hits like Doggy’s Dream with eggs, bacon, grains, and short rib. Occasionally, a groomer is available on-site, and there are always adorable animals available for adoption. Two-legged companions can enjoy discount drinks and the knowledge that the weekly event benefits Lulu’s Rescue.

Square 1682

121 S 17th Street, Rittenhouse
Many Philly restaurants are BYOB, but Square 1682 is BYOD. BYOD is a boozy brunch affair that Square 1682 schedules once a month through September. Dine on the patio with your pup, ordering discounted drinks for you and items from the special doggie menu for your pooch. Water bowls are available for dogs, and for each pet menu purchase, Square 1682 will donate to Operation Ava, a local no-kill shelter. No pup? No problem. Square 1682 also hosts the SPCA during BYOD days and will have dogs available for adoption.

The Trestle Inn

339 N 11th Street, Callowhill
Animal friends are allowed in the outdoor areas of this Go Go bar located in the heart of Callowhill. With water bowls, treats from Doggie Style Pets, and a massive, new rail park just a block away, your pooch will have a ball hanging by the bar while you enjoy discounted drinks. And every month, the Trestle Inn hosts dog-friendly happy hours to support Build the Rail Park. The Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society is on-site during happy hour with dogs available for adoption.

Uptown Beer Garden

1735 Market Street, Logan Circle
Uptown Beer Garden is pet-friendly everyday, except Wednesdays during SIPS. Plus, every month, Uptown holds Yappy Hour, a Philly pet party extravaganza. Even Uptown servers are said to bring their dogs to embark on the fun. Water bowls are provided for all.

White Dog Cafe

3420 Sansom Street, University City
With a name like that, of course it’s dog-friendly. Paintings of pups line the walls and statues of schnauzers stand guard at the doors, and dogs may join human diners at outdoor tables. White Dog servers provide treats and water bowls for furry guests.

Wissahickon Brewing Company

3705 W. School House Lane, East Falls
How many times has your dog been stuck with plain water while you enjoy an artisanal IPA? Wissahickon Brewing Company shares that grainy goodness with pups who visit their Tasting Room, as spent grain from beer production is used to produce treats for canine companions. And with special events held at the bar (like adoption days and pet costume contests), Wissahickon is a must-visit spot this summer.
