Everyone in Nashville loves a good patio, and what’s better than patios WITH doggos?! We aren’t sure there’s anything better. We’ve gathered up a list of dog-friendly patios that you should be sure to hit up once the weather warms up!

Located right next to the Sounds Ballpark, this beer hall and kitchen will be a place you frequent often. Stop in for brunch, after a baseball game, or just about any other time because you can’t go wrong here!


Located in the heart of 12 South, this patio will have some of the best people-watching for you. With the crisp white and blue colors, you’ll feel like the beach is right around the corner. Make sure to ask for the secret taco each time you visit.

Proper Bagel

Carbs, carbs, carbs. We love carbs! Pick your bagel, pick your spread, but be prepared for a wait as they are a popular establishment, especially amongst college students.

With two locations and dog in the title, enjoy weekly happy hour specials here and mark it down as a place you can always go to watch sporting events.

Frothy Monkey

With locations all around town, each one is pet-friendly. Grab a coffee and work on your computer, meet for lunch, or enjoy their Wednesday Wine Nights.

Jackalope Brewery

Check out either location after a long day at work, a hike at Radnor, or just simply because! This is a great stop for those who live in the Gulch or around upper Broadway.

M.L. Rose

M.L. Rose is a classic neighborhood beer-and-burger spot, and as a perk, has the best waffle fries in town. 

Edley’s BBQ

BBQ. Fried okra. Banana pudding. And a patio with dogs?! Sign us up. Edley’s is also located close to a neighborhood veterinarian and doggie day-care, so Edley’s can be a quick stop to reward yourself and your favorite canine companion after a check-up or day with the dogs!

Hattie B’s

With multiple locations around town (and even one in Vegas), this is one of the main hot chicken staples of Nashville.
