Dog-Friendly Dining and Drinking
Long summer nights are best spent enjoying a leisurely meal—and a frosty adult beverage—on an outdoor patio.
Luckily for our pets, most restaurants welcome leashed dogs in their outdoor dining areas.
Here are a few favorite spots for happy (yappy) hour and people-and-pet watching:
Liberty Public Market
Liberty Station is having a moment, thanks to the addition of this bustling marketplace, featuring food vendors, craft beer, wine, and Howlistic, a natural pet supply store for dogs and cats.
Iron Fist Brewing Co.
This North County craft brewery’s Barrio Logan outpost offers awesome views of the Coronado Bridge, a pet-friendly patio, and tasty grub from neighboring MishMash.
Hotel bars aren’t just for tourists. The famously pet-friendly Hotel Indigo downtown is a hot spot for local pet lovers who take in Yappy Hour food and drink specials and stellar rooftop views.
AleSmith Brewing Company
In the beer mecca that Mira Mesa has become, this mega-brewery stands out with a spacious, fun, family- and pet-friendly outdoor space, which includes a kids’ activity area and food truck fare.
Hotel del Coronado
An oldie but goodie, this spot wins for its history, seaside dining, proximity to Coronado’s Dog Beach, and its Sunday Yappy Hour.
