We love dogs of all shapes and sizes and we love LA so what's better than a guide of the best places to bring our four-legged friends? Nothing, really! That's why we've collected a list of some of the best places to bring our pups when you go out in Los Angeles.

Echo Park Lake

Leashed dogs are welcome on the paths around Echo Park Lake during park hours (from sunrise to sunset). Enjoy a picnic with your furry friends, take in the sites in the heart of the city and enjoy the lotus blooms!

The Dog Cafe

It'd be a sin to not start off with The Dog Cafe. The first of its kind, this puppy-welcome coffee spot is the best place to go. Play with pups as you grab your coffee fix, or catch up with friends over lattes, snuggling lap dogs. And if you fall in love with one? You’re in luck - all dogs are rescues looking for their forever homes.

Golden Road Brewing

Bring your pup for some sunshine and avocado fries. The fries are for you, and so is the beer, might we recommend the Wolf Pup Session IPA to keep with the theme? Golden Road Brewing's outdoor patio offers games, fresh air and plenty of seating for friends and furry ones.


More than one of our favorite record stores in LA, at Amoeba Hollywood not only can shoppers bring in their pets anytime, their staff's pets have become part of the family, wandering the halls of Amoeba and keeping customers company.

Blue Collar Working Dog

Bring your pets while you shop for them, Blue Collar Working Dog is the world's first interactive pet store. Obstacle courses, hurdles, and tunnels are the perfect outlets for active pups who want to help you pick out their next toy!

Rosie's Dog Beach

Long Beach has many hidden gems, but for the dog-owners of LA, Rosie's Dog Beach is one of the best fine-free, pet-friendly oceanside stops. Make sure you're within the permitted stretches of sand and let your pup enjoy the sea!


Insider's tip: if you order a Pup Pattie, you'll get a meat patty for your furry friend! Plus if you're there for your dog you might as well get some animal-style fries. And a burger. And a shake.

Gracias Madre

We're die-hard fans of Gracias Madre and their weekend brunch, but their dog-friendly patio makes it fun for the whole group. Furry ones are welcome!

Messhall Kitchen

Fire pits, shade and shared food, the patio at Messhall Kitchen in Los Feliz is the perfect place to bring a canine date!

The Lincoln

The Lincoln, a no fuss drinking den for the everyman on Venice's Westside, features craft spirits, draught beer, a rotating wine list, and a dog-friendly patio. The bar works with rescue programs to find furry ones loving homes. They also host DJ nights and drink specials you have to try!

Angel City Brewery

The best place in the Art's District for beers with man's best friend is Angel City Brewery. The open seating area is ideal for letting that consistently warm LA weather keep you and your pets comfortable why you explore ACB's tap selection!

Home Restaurant

There's no place like Home Restaurant in Silverlake for dogs who want to join their owners on the patio deck. Home even offers free treats your pups so you can both dine in doggy harmony.

Runyon Canyon

It goes without saying, if you want to go for a hike with your hound, Runyon Canyon is the place to go! Paw-friendly trails and plenty of new friends to meet, it's got it all!

Blue Dog Beer Tavern

Blue Dog Tavern is a laid-back bar in The Valley with open patio space for your pups to join you for a brew and/or a meal! Don’t have a dog, but love them? The inside decor is full of furry loved ones for you to enjoy. Just try and keep pets off the chairs and tables and enjoy your day!

Come for brunch with your pup and stay for the patio, dog-friendly service! Restauration has been gaining more and more well-deserved attention for its tasty menu and welcoming ambiance.
