Cheers to these dog-friendly bars and breweries in New Orleans!

We New Orleanians love to celebrate almost as much as we love our pets. Being able to combine these two interests is another thing that makes this city great. No matter what part of town you’re in, there’s a good chance that there’s a dog-friendly bar or brewery nearby. If you live in Mid-City like me, you’re lucky enough to have a large variety to choose from with in walking distance. Here are few of my favorite Fido friendly watering holes:

  1. The Bulldog

    Whether you’re Uptown or in Mid-City, The Bulldog’s are more than happy to accommodate your pup!
  2. Port Orleans Brewing Company
