The Barking Spider is a no frills type of bar, making it the perfect place to hang out with your dog and enjoy a drink or two. The east side favorite allows dogs on its patio as well as inside the bar. Stop by at any time and you’re likely to see dogs hanging out inside and out.
I went to check it out last month and felt totally comfortable hanging out with my dog and my foster dog (miss ya Vinnie!). There is a patio out front and another outdoor seating area out back. In the warmer months the bar open its doors wide open, so it has an open air feel inside.
We made our way to the back seating area for our visit. The beautiful leafy patio is a great place to sit and enjoy a beer and listen to live music. The mulch is also really fun for the dogs, as we learned. Be prepared for your dog to be covered in mulch if you choose to hang out in the back area. Fun for dogs and for people! I’d recommend bringing your own water bowl, but you’ll have easy access to as much water as you need from the self serve water cooler inside the bar.
The Barking Spider is definitely a must visit for anyone who likes to visit dog friendly patios. You will feel totally comfortable hanging out with your dog, and will likely run into a lot of other dogs on your visit. Plus, most any time you go you’re likely to catch some live music. Hanging out enjoying a drink and live music with your dog? Sounds like a good night out to me.
