Boneyard Dog Park & Drinkery
Washington Avenue has gone to the dogs and Houston is all the better for it. Boneyard Dog Park & Drinkery is Houston’s first dog park and bar. And although there are other bars in Houston that are dog-friendly, Boneyard has an actual, 7,000 sq. foot dog park where both bar-goers and their canine friends alike can go “off-leash” in a relaxing, laid-back environment. There are toys and even a ramp available but the dogs always seem to be on the picnic tables. Standard dog park rules are in place so pet owners don’t have to worry about the safety of their pup. They can keep an eye on their dog from the large, wraparound deck and picnic tables outside.
Even though there are dogs about, Boneyard is more than just a gimmick bar. With eighteen craft beers rotated on tap, countless varieties of local craft beer and cider in cans and bottles and a selection of both red and white wines available, Boneyard probably has just the drink you’re looking for.
Quirky spots like Boneyard bring Houstonians of different breeds together under a common interest. With ample outdoor seating and a lively social setting for dog owners, dog lovers and the even dogs themselves, Boneyard Dog Park and Drinkery is an ideal spot for you and your pooch to kick back, relax, and enjoy a cold one after a “ruff” day at work.
• The bar itself does not have a kitchen but there’s usually a food truck parked outside. Check the bar’s Twitter @BoneyardHouston to see which food truck will be there.
• Water is available on the patio (for both humans and dogs). Be sure to use the water hose when you fill your pup’s bowl, though, unless you want to look like a newbie.
