Looking for a great place to take your pup out for a night on the town? Search no more! We’ve got you covered. Check out these great places we’ve found in a few of Charlotte’s most “pet-friendly” neighborhoods.

The Wine Vault
9009-L J.M. Keynes Dr.
Located just across from UNC Charlotte’s campus in the Shoppes at University Place, the Wine Vault is an excellent spot for you and your pet. Enjoy your choice of beverage from a wide selection of wines and beers while enjoying the warm ambiance inside or grabbing a covered table outside to enjoy the summer weather. With local art always on display and live music to entertain, the Wine Vault is the perfect spot for you to enjoy their self-defined “Cool Dogs. Weird people.”

Dog Bar
3307 N. Davidson St.
A dog bone sign, dogs sitting on stools, even private dog birthday parties — at this place, dogs rule. As the weather warms up, the bar will stay open later and begin to feature live music and social events. Conveniently located just past the Green Rice Gallery in NoDa, The Dog Bar is a “must visit” for any dog lover.

Luna’s Living Kitchen
2102 South Blvd.,  Suite 150
Luna’s Living Kitchen is an organic and local foodie’s dream! And, the gorgeous patio outside open to all our furry friends is just granola on top. Luna’s, “a new restaurant experience, a place with the peaceful heart of home and the living art of fresh vegan and raw foods” located in the Southend/Dilworth area, has a natural feel that creates a wonderful environment for you and your pup to relax in the summer sunshine.

2121 Shamrock Dr.
Foskoskies, a great neighborhood café serving the Plaza-Midwood community for running on four years now, is a delicious spot to order some fresh, made-from-scratch dishes. The staff welcomes you and your furry friend to come visit them on their beautiful patio for a taste of southern food and hospitality.
