Dog Friendly Patios

Everyone in Nashville loves a good patio, and what’s better than patios WITH doggos?! We aren’t sure there’s anything better. We’ve gathered up a list of dog-friendly patios that you should be sure to hit up once the weather warms up!

Von Elrod’s

Located right next to the Sounds Ballpark, this beer hall and kitchen will be a place you frequent often. Stop in for brunch, after a baseball game, or just about any other time because you can’t go wrong here!

Located in the heart of 12south, this patio will have some of the best people-watching for you. With the crisp white and blue colors, you’ll feel like the beach is right around the corner. Make sure to ask for the secret taco each time you visit. 

Proper Bagel

Carbs, carbs, carbs. We love carbs! Pick your bagel, pick your spread, but be prepared for a wait as they are a popular establishment, especially amongst college students.

Double Dogs

With two locations and dog in the title, enjoy weekly happy hour specials here and mark it down as a place you can always go to watch sporting events.

Frothy Monkey

With locations all around town, each one is pet-friendly. Grab a coffee and work on your computer, meet for lunch, or enjoy their Wednesday Wine Nights.

Mitchell Deli

We were a little hesitant to include this on our list because we feel like this is still a secret among the Nashville locals, but all good things deserve to be shared. 

Jackalope Brewery

Check out either location after a long day at work, a hike at Radnor, or just simply because! 

Village Pub

Two words: Mule Mondays. Need we say more?

We cannot get enough of their waffle fries. We’re not saying we’ve come here and only ordered waffle friends, but we aren’t above it.

BBQ. Fried okra. Banana pudding. And a patio with dogs?! Sign us up. 

Hattie B’s

With multiple locations around town (and even one in Vegas), this is one of the main hot chicken staples of Nashville. 

Burger Up

Here’s another restaurant with multiple locations, each restaurant is independently owned and therefore each has a slightly different menu. But they all have one glorious item in common: truffle fries. 

312 Pizza Company

Tucked away in Germantown, come here to enjoy some pizza, beer, and good people watching. 

Jeni’s Ice Cream

We will end our list with everyone’s favorite ice cream shop. We can’t tell you which flavors to get, but we recommend getting the mini flight with three scoops.
