You know that face your dog makes when you leave the house to go out with friends — those puppy dog eyes that surpass all barriers of communication and beg you to take them with you? Well, what if we told you that you could … and should?

We’ve compiled a list of 20 dog-friendly spots where your dog is more than welcome — and in many cases encouraged — to join.

Doggos Dog Park and Pub

From here on out, we’ll be breaking down establishments into categories to let you know which breweries, bars and restaurants are dog-friendly, but Doggos deserves a category all its own for this topic, as it’s Greensboro’s only dog bar.

You have to email in your dog’s records in order to gain admission, but it’s worth it for the piece of mind it gives you to have your doggo roam the 10,000 square feet of space while supervised by a team of “rufferees.” Humans can partake in any of the 16 draft beers or a list of creative cocktails.

Dog-friendly breweries & bars

Big Burger Spot

Two Greensboro locations: 3750-A Battleground Ave. & 510 A Nicholas Road
