The Dog Bar was first established in Charlotte, NC in 2005. We are very excited to expand this unique concept to the “Grand Central District” of St.Pete. The “Dog Bar” is best described as a hybrid between a Doggie Day Care or private Dog Park, and a full liquor, beer, wine bar. Our goal is simple: We are here to “Serve up Fun” for you and your pups in an enjoyable, safe environment.
Our location is over 5,000 sq.ft. The indoor space is over 3,000 sq. ft. and includes several large tv’s to watch your favorite sporting events. Your favorite adult games including Ping Pong, Skee Ball, Jenga, Connect Four and Corn Hole will also be provided. Our outdoor space is over 2,000 sq.ft. With both an “On Leash” and “Off Leash” area. The “On Leash” area will have cozy bench style seating. The “Off Leash” or Dog Bar Dog Park area, is spacious giving your pup plenty of space to romp and play with their furry friends. “Off Leash” is separated into two spaces for safety. The Small Dog play area and the Medium/Large Breed play area. Both are designed with astro turf for a cleaner and more comfortable play surface. They also contain swimming pools, doggie ramps, tunnels, and cots for lounging. These areas will have a Dog Park supervisor on site to ensure the safety of your dog.
At the Dog Bar, food is not our specialty. Our focus is an extensive selection of liquor, craft drinks, and beers. Our selection includes over 20 taps, with an emphasis on local craft brews, and a large variety of can beer and wine. We will also feature Cold Brew Coffee (non-alcoholic) on tap, soda and juice. We may offer occasional food options for events, or snacks at the bar. However, we encourage you to order food from our neighbor, the Taco Bus, or choose from one of the many other great restaurants on Central Ave that can deliver directly to you at the Dog Bar.
We offer live music on our patio several times throughout the week. In addition, we have a private space available to rent for Dog Birthday parties, or for other events. We are huge advocates of dog rescue and will have many of dog rescue fundraising and adoption events supporting local rescue groups.
In order to bring your dog(s) to the Dog Bar, they must have a membership which is $40.00 per year for first dog and $20.00 per year for each additional dog of household. We have specific requirements for your dog to be accepted as a member of the Dog Bar which includes a copy of up to date vaccinations, and your dog(s) must be spayed or neutered after 1 year of age. Specific details of membership rules and regulations are located on the Membership page.
Due to the nature of our business we do not allow anyone under 21 including small children and babies. Dogs often struggle with the energy of children therefore we are strictly 21 and up.
Welcome to THE DOG BAR…Sit. Stay. Drink…and ENJOY!!!
