Dog-Friendly Dives in Brooklyn

The only thing better than getting drunk is getting drunk with your dog. These bars in Brooklyn understand this wonderful occurrence and are kind enough to let our canine companions in. Head to any of these places if you’re looking to get a brew with your bow-wow.


Warm weather means outdoor drinking and Nowadays is just the place. They have a huge open space for you and your pup to enjoy. While you’re hanging with your dog, why not try their Nowadog in either the meat or veggie rendition.

Battery Harris

If you’re looking for beach vibes, this is your spot. This tropical paradise offers delicious food, fruity drinks, and the opportunity to chill out with your canine companion. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the best frozen dark and stormy that Williamsburg has to offer.

Mission Dolores

Bring on the brews and the bow-wows. With 20 beers on tap, Mission Dolores is a great place to hang out and have fun with your furry friend. If cocktails are more your thing, they also have an impressive selection ranging from a wasabi bloody mary to a mysterious mission punch.

The Levee

Their website sums up what The Levee is all about in four words: beer, booze, pool, and dogs. Those are pretty much all of my favorite things in one place so….I’m sold.

Forrest Point

This place feels more like the Brazil than Brooklyn, and that’s just fine in my book. Bring your pup to sit in their plant-covered outdoor patio and enjoy some delicious dishes and drinks. They offer something called milk punch that honestly sounds kind of gross, but it might be worth a try.

The Owl Farm

No owls, but definitely plenty of pups. This places specializes in beer and cider, so don’t expect any fancy martinis here. But if you need a place to get drunk with your dog, this one will do the trick.

Sunshine Laundromat

This place makes absolutely no sense and I love it. It’s a laundromat, pinball arcade, bar, and dog-friendly hangout all in one. So if you really need to do your laundry, but also want to play games like a teenager and drink like an adult all while hanging out with your hound, this is your spot.


I’m not really sure who’s luckier here, the pups or the people. The people get cheap pitchers and the pups get a great place to hang out. Sounds like a great time for all.

Bushwick Country Club

Don’t let the name fool you, this place is anything but high-brow. It has free cheese puffs, a photo booth, and a putt-putt course in the backyard complete with a PBR windmill. Grab yourself a pickleback and a cool bowl of water for your furry friend and enjoy a day at the country club.
