Don't separate man's best friend from man's best beverage.

Not all bars are down with doggies on their patios, and man’s best friend can be a pain in the butt when it hinders your al fresco game. But Fido’s welcome to accompany you on these patios while you’re reaping (or anytime, really) these deals.


Coup d’État

2923 Girard Av. S., Mpls. • 612-354-3575 •

Treat your pup to a walk around the lake and then treat yourself to happy hour at this Uptown joint. From 5-7 p.m. and 10 p.m. to midnight Monday through Thursday (plus Sundays with the early hours starting at 3 p.m.) enjoy $4 select beers, wines and house spirits, $6 select cocktails. Take select beer-and-shot combos — Primo and fernet, perhaps — for $5.


Hola Arepa

3501 Nicollet Av. S., Mpls. • 612-345-5583 •

Don’t be shy about bringing your canine companion to Hola Arepa’s patio. Hang out with your Yorkie-poo or yellow Lab during Hola’s 3-6 p.m. Tuesday-through-Friday or 10 p.m.-to-close Sunday-through-Thursday happy hours and sip $3.50 tap beers and $4 house wine.


Butcher & the Boar

1121 Hennepin Av. S., Mpls. • 612-238-8888 •

It might be a tease toting your pooch to this house of meat (maybe bring a treat). But B&B’s beer garden is dog-friendly, and its long-running $12 beer, brat and a shot combo is a steal. Your call on sharing the tube meat with your fur buddy.
