Are you tired of having to leave your dog behind when you go out for dinner or a night on the town? Is Fido looking up at you with those puppy dog eyes when you close the door? Chicago has many places that welcomes your furry friend.
Not only will these dog friendly cafes and bars let you enjoy your food, it allows for your dog to escape the apartment after a long day alone. Check out these establishments for a Doggy and You date!
25 Degrees (736 N Clark St.)
Has a patio for you and your dog to enjoy while you have some amazing food and do some people watching. Rumor has it that they have excellent burgers.
312 Chicago (171 W Randolph St.)
Allows you to spoil your furry friend. They have wagging weekends where your dog has their own menu. They can choose anything from chicken & pasta to salmon and rice to biscuits for dessert. I think it sounds like a phenomenal place to take your dog for a little spoiling.
Begyle Brewing (1800 W Cuyler Ave.)
Is a brewery where dogs can lap at water bowls and eat treats while their human friends can enjoy refreshing beers from the microbrewery. You can purchase pints to stay or growlers (no pun intended!) to take on the go.
Benchmark (1510 N Wells St.)
Is a quaint little spot where your dog can dine with you on the patio. There is a doggie menu for Fido to pick his favorite munchie. You can order your dog a chicken breast for $2 or even a mini burger or carrots for $1.
Chicago Burger Company (301 E North Water St.)
Is a seasonal spot, located along the riverfront. It offers delicious burgers for you along with a menu for your canine friend that features beef and rice combos. Fresh water and complimentary bones are always provided for your canine friend.
Clark Street Ale House (742 N Clark St.)
Has a large patio that you and your dog can enjoy the weather while you eat and your dog enjoys the water bowls. This is a great place for your dog to socialize and meet other furry friends. Guests are known to host several dog parties a month.
Crosby’s Kitchen (3455 N Southport Ave.)
Is a very popular neighborhood restaurant that has a heated patio so you and your furry friend do not get too cold. They provide dog treats and water bowls to keep your dog content and happy. For those chilly Chicago days, stop by and warm up on the patio!
Dolce Italian (127 W Huron St.)
Transports you to Rome with their flower-filled patio. Their patio seating is dog friendly and also hosts Woofs & Wine every Wednesday. This offers happy hour specials and dog treats.
EZ Inn (921 N Western Ave.)
Reopened a few years ago and is now a revived dive bar that allows you and your furry friend to enjoy a cold draft.
Nellcôte (833 W Randolph St.)
