3 Dog-Friendly Bars in San Francisco
These three dog-friendly bars will make sure that you and your pooch will both find a place where everyone knows your name, and you can sit back and watch a game or two.
1. The Stray Bar – 309 Cortland Ave., 415-821-9263. Stop in for a few drinks and a few treats for your four-legged friend. The bar has a few ground rules for pet parents: All dogs must be kept on a leash and with their owners at all times; dogs aren’t allowed on couches or leather cubes, but a small dog may sit on your lap; dogs can’t play with each other and their toys cannot be tossed around; and pet parents who do not clean up or take responsibility for their dogs will be asked to leave and not return. Follow the rules and you and your buddy will be set for the night. By the way, check out the photo on yelp.com showing one of these rules being broken.
2. Lucky 13 – 2140 Market St. This popular dive bar is very dog-friendly, and you can find several photos of happy dogs lounging on their pet parents’ laps. Located in the lively Castro neighborhood, this local dive bar is home to many hipsters and their pupsters.
3. Doc’s Clock – 2575 Mission St. Located in the heart of the historic Mission District, this local pub hosts Doggie Happy Hours on the first Saturday of every month from 4 to 8 p.m. The bar has raised funds for several rescues, such as the Wonder Dog Rescue, Muttville and Give A Dog A Bone.
