Let’s face it. Your pooch doesn’t want to sit home while you’re out frolicking with your friends, now does s/he? Here is a list of dog-friendly places you can take Fido with you, when dining out or enjoying a pint:
Swamp Cabbage Brewing Company :: In the taproom and under the pergola, dogs are welcome! Serves limited food menu. Known for excellent handmade craft beers. Owners of this brewery love their pups and will make you and yours feel at home.
Publico Kitchen & Tap :: This spring, Publico in Five Points enlarged its patio area behind the restaurant into one cool, colorful spot. And your dog is not only welcome, s/he can order from their own menu! More here.
O’Hara’s Public House :: Lexington’s only Irish Pub has established itself as the go-to for great live music, awesome pub grub and the friendliest staff in town! Their expanded outdoor deck, behind the pub, is where you, Fido and friends can hang out and have fun.
