21 Dog-Friendly Restaurants and Bars in St. Louis
You shouldn't be cooped up all of the time in your house, and your dog shouldn't, either. You and your buddy both need exercise and new experiences. And sometimes you even like to share food together, too. (Don't tell the vet.)
If you and your pup are looking to get out but you aren't sure where your four-legged friend is allowed to visit, this is the collection for you.
Each of these spots not only allows dogs, but they're known to welcome them, too. Some were designed with dogs in mind and some of them are just happy when dogs show up. Either way, you're guaranteed to have more fun at these places than you would at the dog park. Like, do they even have beer at the dog park? We rest our case.
