We’re starting off this list with the creme de la creme of dog-friendly patios: Uncle Abe’s. Complete with their own weekly “Yappy Hours” featuring refreshing “dogtails” and treats, their patio is the perfect spot to enjoy a Sunday afternoon with your pooch. Or to stop by and do some quality dog-watching (and appreciating).

Where: 3032 Main Street

Jules Bistro

This bright, airy French bistro is the perfect spot to catch up with friends over happy-hour drinks & charcuterie. And they have a pet-friendly patio so your best buds can join in on the fun!

Where: 216 Abbott Street

Mahony & Sons Stamps Landing

Honestly, the Mahony & Sons patio is the perfect place to soak up the sun along False Creek, and your pup can chill right there with you at the table. Plus, you’ve got tons of walking options nearby – including the off-leash Charleson dog park!

Where: 601 Stamps Landing

MeeT on Main

The open patio concept, paired with its proximity to Queen Elizabeth, makes this a top choice for us. Get tasty vegan fare and a couple of drinks before you spend 2 hours frolicking around the massive grassy hills that make up Queen Elizabeth Park.

Where: 4288 Main Street

While this one’s a bit of a trek from Vancouver, Moody Ales in Port Moody is another popular spot for dogs and their owners to frequent. And the brewery has quite the Instagram feed to show for it!

Where: 2601 Murray Street, Port Moody

This one’s a personal fave, but the cozy patio at Six Acres in Gastown is a fantastic spot to tie your pup up and enjoy a couple of brews by their side. Just make sure you bring treats so they enjoy the experience as much as you do! Plus, the people-watching here is second to none, especially on a weekend.

Where: 203 Carrall Street


This Belgian gastropub on Commercial Drive is great for trying out a new beer while your dog lounges beside you. Also, it’s super close to Grandview Park and Victoria Park, in case you get tired of all the attention you’re getting on the street. There are a few Biercraft locations around the city, but this one is definitely up on there on our list.

Where: 1191 Commercial Drive

Tap & Barrel

A sprawling patio right beside the path makes this one of the best dog-friendly patios in the city. These guys are known for their great patios, so when in doubt, head to one of their locations. Heads up, since we’re trying to cover all the bases, we’re recommending the Olympic Village location or the Tap & Barrel Bridges on Granville Island.

Where: 75 Athletes Way or 1696 Duranleau Street

Provence Marinaside

Just across the water from Tap and Barrel lies Provence Marinaside. A little more upscale, Provence does seafood-forward French cuisine, so this is an ideal date night spot. Eat some lobster, then walk around either David Lam or Coopers’ Park. 10/10 experience guaranteed. And why not bring your pup along for the special occasion??

Where: 1177 Marinaside Crescent

Red Truck

Red Truck has a massive lot and patio to make it easy for you to throw a ball to your pup in-between brews, which is definitely appreciated when it comes to getting the zoomies out of the way.

Where: 295 East 1st Avenue

And there you have it! Our favourite pup-friendly patios in Vancouver to hit up when we’re out and about with a couple of our best friends. Spread the joy this summer.
