Miami is a wonderful place to get out, go exploring, and soak up some sunshine with your fur-baby. But you don’t necessarily have to hit the beach or do some socializing at the dog park if you want some quality time with your canine pal — thanks to Miami’s best dog-friendly bars, you can quench your thirst with your pup by your side.
So regardless of whether you’re stopping by for a quick drink and a bite to eat, or maybe settling in for a Sunday session, here are 5 dog-friendly bars in Miami that you and your pup should visit.
The first stop on our dog-friendly Miami bar adventure is GroWynwood. This pop-up venue is a relatively new addition to the Wynwood social scene, but it’s quickly made a name for itself among local pet parents.
Some love Gro for the delicious cuisine on offer from its food trucks. Others love it for cocktails like the Summertime Shandy and the Gro-jito, or for the beer bucket specials on offer. But if you’re a dog lover, the best thing about GroWynwood is that dogs are welcomed with open paws.
So while you’re quenching your thirst, your fur-baby can lap up the good times in this casual outdoor beer garden. And who knows? If your pup is on the best behavior and can strike an adorable pose on social media, they might even end up being named the #GROPupOfTheWeek.
GreenStreet Cafe has been a favorite with Miami locals for more than 30 years. This Coconut Grove institution operates on the philosophy that “Where there is love, there is life” — and with dogs welcome in the popular outdoor seating area, there’s no doubting that there’s plenty of love on offer here.
Stop by and you’ll find it’s always busy throughout the day, particularly for brunch, and is also open for lunch, dinner, and late-night fun. There’s water to help dogs stay hydrated, and it’s pretty clear that the servers love having four-legged visitors. If you’re exploring Miami’s best eating and drinking spots with your pup, GreenStreet Cafe is a must-visit.
Next on our list of the best dog-friendly bars in Miami is this popular Coconut Grove burger joint. With its Bohemian vibe, delicious selection of burgers and sandwiches, and extensive beer menu, there’s much to enjoy here. But throw in the fact that dogs are welcome on the outdoor patio and your tail is sure to start waving enthusiastically.
Even better, there’s a special doggy menu for four-legged diners. So while you’re tucking into a Frita by Kush Burger, your pooch can chow down on some homemade meatloaf or some grilled chicken with rice, carrots, and peas. There’s even non-alcoholic doggy beer available — what more could a thirsty pup want!
Enjoy sipping a cold brew or two with your pup by your side? You’ll want to make the journey west from downtown Miami to Doral, just past the city’s international airport, to treat your taste buds (and your pup) to a craft beer adventure.
Founded in 2018, Tripping Animals is an independent brewery with a taproom in the heart of Doral. And while beer drinkers will love sampling the goodies from the 15-barrel brewhouse, your dog will want to follow their nose to Animal’s Roots and Rock Garden. This dog-friendly patio is a great spot for your furry friend to kick back and relax while you wet your whistle.
Food is also available, along with a large selection of board games and ping pong tables, so you and your pup will probably want to stay awhile.
The last stop on our Miami "pup" crawl is Lincoln’s Beard Brewing Co. This craft brewery with a name that’s impossible to forget is a favorite with Miami’s beer lovers and pet parents alike.
Dogs are more than welcome to accompany their "hoomans" here, so load up your fur-baby and check out the local brews on offer. Maybe you fancy a Lawyers Don’t Surf Juicy IPA, or an Avenge Me Irish Red could be more to your taste? Either way, your dog won’t mind what you decide to drink — they’ll just love the chance to spend some quality time with you.
This is just a small selection of the many dog-friendly bars in Miami worth visiting. So the next time you’re heading out for an adult beverage, bring your dog along too and check out the best dog-friendly bars Miami has to offer.
