Maybe it’s the tease of summer weather, but when spring rolls around it finally seems like the people of Seattle come out of hibernation and the social calendar starts filling up. I love it. However, as a pet owner, the one drawback is that I feel guilty leaving my dog at home more than usual. Sure, Seattle offers a lot of dog-friendly activities – hiking, walking trails, dog parks, but the catch is those are all outdoor activities. Between my family and friends, there's a lot of dogs, so we’re always trying to find places to go with our furry friends that aren’t weather dependent. We've come up with a pretty good list of spots that welcome canine patrons, and below you'll find some of my faves!
JM Cellars, Woodinville
A family favorite, JM Cellars always welcomes four-legged guests and they even have a nice little walking trail you can check out (with your wine tasting of course!).
Shelter Lounge, Ballard
I love the indoor fire-pits and big garage doors here -- makes you feel outside when you can't be. They also have a fab patio for those days the sun decides to stick around!
9 Million in Unmarked Bills, Fremont
All you need to know is truffle fries and killer bloody Mary's. I'm hungry just thinking about it.
Belltown Pub, Seattle
Shuffleboard, great drinks and the occasional ‘Yappy Hour’ – this is a one of mine (and Tux’s) favorite brunch spots!
Duchess Tavern, Ravenna
Bar games and classic pub fare. You can thank me later.
Fremont Dock Sports Bar, Fremont
One of the best places for game day shenanigans. Who doesn't like football and omelets!?
Norm's Eatery & Alehouse, Fremont
One of the first dog friendly places I learned about, Norm's has a great happy hour and a fun place to check out when they have trivia night!
If you know of any others, holler at me @c_allodi!
