The Top 10 Bars Where Your Dog Will Be Welcome, Too
10. Celtic Gardens
Sure, Celtic Gardens is smack-dab in the middle of the concrete jungle, but that's part of what's so great about it being dog-friendly. There isn't much green space in the city for Fido to take advantage of, but there's plenty of room for your buddy to lounge out at Celtic Gardens. They welcome your best furry friend with open arms while you grab a beer or six on their patio. Good beer selection, heavy pours, your dog is welcome...oh, and they get bonus points for the metered parking available around the bar, since it's such a valet-heavy area. No one needs dog hair on their dark valet pants, now do they?

9. Front Porch Pub
Your dog is always welcome at this super busy Midtown hotspot, but we have a suggestion. You should do your dog a solid and take them on steak night, where they're bound to get meat-treats galore fed to them by friendly strangers on the front porch. The food is pretty darn good, crowd is usually laid back, and the beer is always cold, so this place is a win with us. Parking can be a bit sketch, but it'll give both you and your old dog a chance to stretch your legs on that extended walk from wherever you left your car to the bar. Bonus points for everyone!

8. Natachee's Supper 'N Punch
Okay, so we admit that we may have stretched the definition of "bar" to fit Natachee's on this list, but give us a little leeway. They've got some great drinks, and an even more awesome outdoor area that is perfect for not only your dogs, but your little ones as well. You can kick back, punch in hand, and hang out in what feels like Natachee's backyard for hours, and no one will judge ya. It's not so much a patio as it is a big open space for you and your dog to sit back and laze the day away.
