I recently took my babies to Yard Bar and I forgot how cool this place is. I can sit, enjoy the outdoors, and have a drink with friends while my dogs run around freely and sniff all the butts they want in a safe environment. The staff there is awesome! The “Bark Rangers” always make sure the dogs are okay and that they’re having a good time. They also take care of gathering and cleaning the balls, breaking up any “cat fights” 😹 , and watching over everyone’s security in general. For us humans, there are lots of shaded tables, trees, and misters for those crazy hot days. If the puppers get too toasty, bring them to the little kids’ pool to cool down and show off their new bathing suit (because you know you’re going to buy them one).
In case you feel better having your little ones playing separately from the ‘big boys’, there is a designated area for small dogs, but you are welcome to have your small dog in the big area. My dogs are both under 11 pounds and I usually take them to the area for big dogs and they love it. It’s up to you, but you have options.
I’ve mentioned the drinks, but they also have food, and it’s pretty good. They even have options for dogs! From sliders to doggie ice cream 😋
Overall, I love this place. It just makes me happy to see all the dogs playing, running, and having a great time. I’d much rather have drinks with friends at Yard Bar than any other bar. If you are looking for a place where you and your four-legged pal can have a great time, look no further.
