Cincinnati is filled to the brim with bar and brewery options to grab a drink and spend a night (or day) out at, but they aren’t always Fido-friendly. For those inclined to enjoy a delicious beverage and time with the pup, be sure to check out these pet-friendly places around the Queen City.
1- Put your gaming skills to the test at 16-Bit Bar + Arcade and enjoy a drink with your four-legged friend. This OTR bar has more than 50 (free!) arcade games and an impressive selection of cocktails (hello, boozy slushies!). Pets are allowed indoors during the day as long as the bar isn’t crowded, and can enjoy a pick-me-up out of a 16-Bit branded water bowl.
1331 Walnut St., Over-the-Rhine, (513) 381-1616
2- The Woodburn Brewery loves dogs almost as much as craft beer. Head to East Walnut Hills to try one of their creative brew and relax on the patio with your pup. The brewery offers a wide selection of IPAs, cider, wine, ale, and more. Woodburn usually has a food truck out front too, so grab some food and enjoy a drink while your pet is spoiled with attention.
2800 Woodburn Ave., East Walnut Hills, (513) 221-2337
3- Kick back, relax, and enjoy the great outdoors in Over-the-Rhine’s backyard, Rosedale OTR. This bar features a dog-friendly patio with two premium bocce ball courts, outdoor games, and crackling fire pits in the cooler months. Rosedale is always happy to accommodate your furry friend, but on busy weekend nights dogs may have to vacate the patio after 11 p.m.
208 E. 12th St., Over-the-Rhine, (513) 864-5400
4- If you’re looking for something a bit more low-key, check out Hightail in Mt. Adams. This community-centric bar offers 52 bottled and canned beers and 16 beers on draft. Hightail will get two paws up from your pooch: It hosts a weekly Yappy Hour every Sunday from 4-8 p.m. with half-price drinks, dog treats, and swag.
941 Pavilion St., Mt. Adams, (513) 229-9980
5- The Growler House in East Walnut Hills is a growler filling station that offers 30 local, regional, and national craft beers in the taproom. Pets are always welcome to accompany their parents, so bring your dog and enjoy a delicious drink or two.
