It's yappy hour

So… You’re out with your pals having a good time, gabbing on about whether it’s time for the dad shoe trend to be over, and if it’s worth splurging on a designer bucket hat. You finish your vodka + soda + lime and check your phone to see if you have time for another before happy hour ends. But, as you unlock your screen, that precious furry face pops up, and stares into your soul. Sarah McLachlan’s ASPCA music fills your ears, and you immediately get a taxi home.

Hound familiar?

If you’re a dog owner, you know the struggle of leaving your pup behind is very ruff. When your dog is also your dawg, enjoying yourself without your trusty companion is impaw-sible.

What if we said you can bring your pooch to the paw-ty?! We’ve rounded up the best dog-friendly bars in NYC, so you can turn your happy hour into a yappy hour. Take a break from running your dog’s Instagram account, and check them out!
