Finding the perfect, dog-friendly apartment that’s also in a great location isn’t easy. At the Lofts at One Broadway, we not only welcome your pup, but offer a place to live where residents are in a great spot to enjoy downtown Albany with their furry friends, especially at local restaurants, coffee shops, and pubs.
Here are some of the best dog-friendly spots to grab a bite, pint, cup of coffee and more.
Albany Ale & Oyster – 281 New Scotland Ave
This place offers craft beers and a menu with everything from select bar bites ranging from special bratwursts to seafood dishes. Dogs are allowed in front of the restaurant in their outdoor seating area.
Wolff’s Biergarten – 895 Broadway
Enjoy a Bavarian pretzel and an authentic German beer in the dog-friendly patio area where your dog gets a treat and a water dish. Check out their Oktoberfest Block Party in the fall so you don’t miss the Dachshund “wiener dog” races.
The Daily Grind at 204 Lark Street, Stacks Expresso Bar at 260 Lark Street
There’s no need to leave the pup at home when you’re on a quest for a great cup of coffee. A walk down Lark Street gives you and your dog two great options for both indoor and outdoor seating as well as snacks both of you can enjoy.
Dove and Deer– 32 Dove Street
This is a neighborhood bar and restaurant that serves traditional pub fare with a crafted approach. It’s a great spot to enjoy vegetable-forward options alongside your favorite bar classics and when the weather is good the pet-friendly patio is open.
Emack & Bolio’s – 366 Delaware Avenue
This awesome ice cream shop will satisfy both you and your dog’s sweet tooth. The relaxing garden patio is dog friendly and there’s even a doggie sundae on the menu.
The Olde English Pub & Pantry – 683 Broadway
Also known as “the little house with beer in it” this pub is fantastic for British beers and delicious English food. The patio is famously dog friendly so bring your four-legged friend along for a pint.
Lost & Found – 942 Broadway
This craft beverage bar with a savory menu welcomes pups on the patio. Patio-goers are greeted by a smaller version of the Warehouse District icon, Nipper (the RCA dog), perched above the outdoor bar. The pet-friendly patio is a great place to meet your dog-loving friends.
Nine Pin Cider Works – 929 Broadway
The tasting room’s menu offers a rotating selection of small batch hard ciders, gourmet sourdough personal pizzas and small plates. The patio is dog friendly and if your pup is an Instagram star, the outside area is decorated with murals that are the perfect background for pics.
McGeary’s Irish Pub – 4 Clinton Square
One of the most popular downtown bars serves up great pub grub and has an extensive beer selection. During the summer, it’s a go-to spot in the heart of downtown Albany to meet up with fellow dog lovers on the patio.
Fort Orange Brewing – 450 North Pearl Street
Albany’s largest taproom is a dog-friendly spot (of course your dog is leashed and well behaved) and schedules food trucks to provide a wide variety of different menus to sample. Jump into a game of cornhole or grab a beer from the microbrewery’s rotating tap list and relax on the patio with your pup.
