A Story By

Elevate your happy hour to yappy hour in Tampa Bay with your four-legged friend. We know it’s nearly impossible to go have a fun time without your pup, so we’ve rounded up the best yappy hours in Tampa Bay that are particularly pup-friendly and awaiting a doggone good time. 

Whether your furry friend is seeking free treats, a full menu meant just for dogs, or a playground to run around at, Tampa Bay has some of the best bars, restaurants, and breweries to choose from. 

Because mans best friend deserves a night out on the town, here are the 6 best yappy hours in Tampa Bay:

The Dog Bar

Think dog park meets bar. The Dog Bar is an iconic spot in downtown St. Pete for dog owners. It’s a huge fenced-in outdoor space with swimming pools, ramps, and tunnels for dogs to play!

Humans can have fun here too! They have cornhole, life-size Jenga, and other games for  to play. The Dog Bar has a full liquor bar, drink specials, and over 20 craft beers. Usually, there’s a food truck on location too! They require an annual $50 membership, and all dogs must have up-to-date vaccinations and must be fixed.

Friday-Saturday | 12PM-1AM

📍 2300 Central Ave, St. Petersburg, FL 33712

It’s always a PAWTY at Pups Pub. This South Tampa off leash pup bar is for 21+ only and has a ton of pup perks! It’s nothing but cool vibes with indoor air conditioned area and an outdoor patio with fans along with an endless supply of water. The outdoor area is fenced with doggy windows so the fur babies can watch the cars go by. There’s also a ton of people perks too! Like full liquor bar, games, 22 TV’s, and of course dogs, dogs, and more dogs! Even if you do not own a dog, you can come play with all the pups without any of the responsibilities that come with it. If you do have a dog though they have a few membership options available!

Sweet Sage Cafe

Your pup can get the full experience at Sweet Sage Cafe, North Redington Beach’s lovely cafe and boutique. Sweet Sage Cafe is a homey cafe serving American favorites for breakfast and lunch, and they have a really awesome gift shop! Grab a seat at their cute outdoor garden patio and order from the Canine Cuisine menu, which features The Beagle, bagel with cream cheese and salmon, or The Mutt Loaf, a 4 oz. steak ala ground.

 The best part? Sweet Sage Cafe is super close to the off-leash dog park at Maderia Beach City Centre to continue your day of fun with your sweet pup.

Green Bench Brewing

On any given sunny day, the lawn area at Green Bench Brewing is waiting you and your furry friends to stop by for a great time. Come for the delicious Postcard Pilsner and Sunshine City IPA, and stay for the relaxing ambiance and local community vibe. Who knows, maybe your pup will meet their new bff at the beer garden!

If you get hungry, we definitely recommend heading next door to Red Mesa Mercado for some delicious tacos. The craft beer flights and ciders are great, and the dog-friendliness is another compelling reason to visit this downtown St. Pete hot spot.
