Because nothing pairs better with coffee or beer than your own doggo

Doesn’t your best doggo deserve more than just the usual aimless walkies? Shouldn’t your favorite pooch sometimes accompany you to a fine cafe or pub, to lounge happily by your feet as you sip some hot java or cold beer and shoot the breeze with friends on the patio?
Bark once if the answer is “yes.”
And, look, here’s a sweet list of just some of the local venues where human citizens and their furry four-footed friends are welcome. (We’d also suggest you try bringing a cat … but our lawyers require us to note that we’re not responsible for any, ah, undue consequences resultant therefrom.)
1305 W. Oltorf, 512/298-2242
Hounds and humans alike dig the locavore pizzas and great music at this southside hang that's won the Great American Beer Festival's Brewpub of the Year award for two years running.
2001 E. MLK, 512/478-4700
Their killer cold brew is what spawned that whole Chameleon line, and it's the sort of tasty java that'll keep you up 24 hours a day – which is how long both well-appointed locations are open.
1400 E. 38th 1/2, 512/538-1991
Do we have to tell you how good the cheeseburgers are at this popular neighborhood cafe? Probably not. But here's a shout-out to their cheesesteak tacos and creative dinner specials, too, well accompanied by any of those 25 beers (or more) on tap.
2211 Webberville Rd.
This Eastside gem with its snazzy retro vibe's got regular food pop-ups featuring Thai and Cambodian food, the hot dog cinema club on Sunday nights, and frequent rescue dog meet-ups. Bonus: Frosé!
6700 Burnet Rd., 512/900-3773
Insider information: Whenever we asked friends where they take their dogs, Yard Bar was the first place mentioned. Aside from the venue's other myriad charms, we reckon that whole off-leash dog park of theirs has something to do with it.
