Puppy and beer at Yard Bar
| Yard Bar/Facebook

Let’s be real: all of Austin is luckily dog-friendly. However, there are certain bars and restaurants that cater to dogs more than others. To highlight those, Eater put together this handy guide to Austin’s best dog-friendly spots in the city.

This includes beer gardens with dog parks and sausages from Banger’s Sausage House, places offering canine treats like campus bar Crown & Anchor, and the city’s very own dog park/restaurant/bar with dog minders, Yard Bar.

Adding to the dog-centered establishments will be Dallas-based dog park/restaurant/bar Mutts Canine Cantina and dog park/coffee shop Canine Commons, opening in the near future.

For more outdoor spaces, check out Austin’s essential patios, new ones, and cooler shaded patios.

Missing a favorite canine spot below? Let Eater know in the comments or through the tipline.
