Austin has quickly ascended to one of America's best cities for dog lovers and Dawgtown is proud to call this city home. 

Below are six popular dog-friendly restaurants & bars in Austin to try! Check them out in our app!

Austin Beer Garden Brewing Co.

The converted warehouse turned popular beer garden and pizza destination is one of the most dog-friendly places in the city! The brewery offers watering stations to keep your dogs hydrated and dog biscuits to keep them full. Their long list of beers on tap includes the American Pale Ale (APA) series, an experimental hop, with $1 from every pint sold benefiting Austin Pets Alive! efforts to help find dogs their forever homes.

Banger’s Sausage House & Beer Garden

The largest tap selection in Austin. Locally sourced exotic meat sausage. Live entertainment. An off-leash play area + special dog treat menus. What more could you or your pup ask for? If your answer is a special event specifically for dog owners, you're in luck … Mega Mutt Monday is hosted every third Monday of the month, where local dog organizations attend and provide giveaways to lucky patrons. This place is heaven for dog owners!

Doghouse Drinkery

North Austin dog owners rejoice! A short drive to Leander offers 2.5 acres of dog training, yappy hours, food trucks, adoption opportunities, and so much more! A separate half-acre off-leash park area costs $5/day or $75/year, but we think it's well worth the trip to escape the Austin noise and relax while your pup makes fur-iends.
