5 Dog-Friendly Bars in Nashville Your Pup Should Visit



If you're looking to have some fun in Music City, you won't have to search for long. This exciting city is home to dozens of dog-friendly bars and venues. With unparalleled nightlife and so many places to choose from, it can be hard to narrow down where you want to go with your fur-baby. Luckily, we've done some digging and found 5 of the most "pawsome" dog-friendly bars around Nashville.

Tailgate Brewery

Tailgate Brewery is a tail-waggin' good time in the heart of Nashville. This brewery has a funky atmosphere and staff of pooch-loving people who will serve you and your pup with a smile. Sip on Tailgate's handcrafted brews as you munch on some of the most creative pizzas in the state, with offerings like hot honey and lasagna pizzas.

Not one for pie? Have your pizza toppings turned into loaded waffle fries for a sinfully delicious treat. Besides microbrews and tasty eats, this brewery boasts a monthly Mutt Club meet-up for the patrons and their pups. 

Tennessee Brew Works

Tennessee Brew Works is the "pawfect" place to grab a bottle of suds with your four-legged crew. This no-frills brewery is a top contender among the best breweries in Nashville and uses green brewing practices to reduce its carbon footprint.

Pups are welcome to join their parents on the covered outdoor patio for a beer or four. Besides the extensive beer menu, Tennessee Brew Works has a fantastic food selection too. Customers rave about the juicy burgers and crispy wings, so definitely try those if you decide to give this bar a shot.

Von Elrod's Beer Garden & Sausage House

Von Elrod's may reign supreme in the beer selection department, with more than 30 beers on draft and even more in bottles. This bar has all the local brews, domestics, and imports you could want, plus an excellent wine, cider, and cocktail menu.

Beer isn't the only thing on the menu that has packs flocking to this bar and restaurant. The bar grub and classic German sausages bring customers in by the boatloads. Enjoy smoked wings, brisket, and sandwiches galore, along with authentic German-style sausages. What's more, the spacious heated patio allows pups and their parents to enjoy the offerings any time of the year.

Fat Bottom Brewing

Fat Bottom Brewing is the place to go for cold beer, hot food, and unmatched dog-friendly hospitality. This brewery is located in the heart of downtown Nashville, making it a "grrreat" pit stop between seeing shows and tourist attractions like the Ryman Auditorium.

The servers will happily bring out water bowls and extra plates for your woofer while you sip on handcrafted brews and munch on made-to-order food. Talk about quality service!

Tin Roof

Tin Roof on Demonbreun Street is a fun music venue where you can dance and drink into the night with your pooch. Lounge with your pup on the dog-friendly patio as you listen to the live bands play. The cool thing about this bar is that it hosts bands and DJs of all genres, so there's something for everyone.

Got the Monday blues? The Tin Roof is the "pawfect" solution, with its famous $5 drink and food specials. This is a bar your budget can feel good about!
