Sure, Las Vegas is home to 10 dog parks—but if you’re really looking to hit the town in style, Sin City has a lot to offer when it comes to dog friendly hangs. From brunch and brews to car shows, read on for a lucky guide to hanging out in Vegas with your dog.
A guide to dog friendly Las Vegas
Grab dinner and a drink
Hop over to Bar + Bistro at the Arts Factory for fire spinning, suckling pig roasts, local art, and some of the freshest locally sourced food around. This hip hangout also offers tasty cocktails (they have bottomless mimosa and Bloody Mary specials during brunch) and features live music from time to time.
Head to the Las Vegas Pet Expo
The Las Vegas Pet Expo takes place in February and features agility demonstrations, costume and talent contests, pet/owner musical chairs, and more. Admission is free and the event goes from 10am to 6pm, so fluff up your buddy’s fur and get ready to shine. Discounted vaccinations, loads of giveaways, free nail trims, and much more will be available on-site.
Check out some ‘Vettes
Taking place on November 15th at Freedom Park from 10am-3pm, you can peruse all the shiny candy colored cars with your dog in tow. The admission is free and all proceeds from the event go to benefit the Las Vegas Valley Humane Society. Also on site will be live music, food, various dog vendors, and more. Visit Vegas Vettes for more information.
Take in the sights
True to its name, the Strip View Cafe boasts a sweet view of the strip to the east. Grab a seat on the patio and sip on a latte or mimosa with your buddy right next to you. If you’re feeling hungry, Strip View Cafe has a great selection of paninis and sub sandwiches, along with lots of breakfast items for you early birds.
Raise your standards
Nosh on the best crepes in town over mimosas at Crepe Expectations. From savory to sweet, you can rest assured that your inner Francophile will be sated after a visit. Crepe Expectations loves dogs, so bring them on by for treats and a cool drink.
Hit an art gallery
Check out Jana’s Red Room located inside the Arts Factory for a visual sampling of some of the best Nevada has to offer. The art in here routinely rotates, so there’s always something new to see.
Have a beer
Have a beer and enjoy the sun out on Banger Brewing’s dog friendly patio. Banger Brewing routinely hosts Paws and Pints, an event that provides the opportunity for pet adoption and benefits the Adopt A Rescue Pet foundation by donating a dollar of every beer.
