Until you own a pooch, you'll never really understand the saying “dog is a man’s best friend”. Well, as the owner of a super cute and loving puppy, I get the meaning of dog and human friendship, and I like to take my furry friend everywhere.
The problem with living in the city is trying to find places you can hang with your pup and your friends too. There’s the great outdoors of course, dog parks, and your local café, but what about a Brisbane bar where you can have a decent brew as well?
With that in mind, we’ve made it our mission to round up the best dog-friendly bars in Brisbane. Your canine pal will never be left out again!
The Hope & Anchor
Brisbane’s best nautical theme-come-British-style pub, The Hope & Anchor is a great spot to hang with your beloved pup. Giving off good community vibes in Paddington, you can enjoy some moreish scamorza and basil arancini with a crisp pint of your favourite brew, and of course your pooch chilling at your feet.
Fitz + Potts
It’s time to venture out of your stuffy apartment and treat your dog to a day out on the sunny astroturfed balcony at Fitz + Potts in Nundah. This is the perfect spot to sit back and enjoy some bagel crisps with a refreshing Aussie craft beer.
Head out the back of Sassafras to their leafy escape in the beer garden and find the perfect spot for you and your fur baby to hang. Sassafras offers up an Amber Ale braised pork belly burger with sweet potato chips, which is bound to top off your afternoon. Maybe you could spare a chip for the pooch as well?
This place is BYO food and BYO dog. Winner! The Scratch are experts when it comes to beer, constantly changing their taps to give you the finest flavours in the land. You and your pup can pull up a seat in the chill outdoor setting, and you’ll love their farmhouse cheese board.
You can’t go past the great pub food and bevs at The Wickham, especially if their street dining invites your 'fur-ever' friend along as well. You’ll love their mad cocktail skills and drool-worthy cheeseburger, all while enjoying the company of your four-legged friend.
