Having paws doesn't mean you can't go places, and Austin knows that better than anywhere else in Texas. From shopping centers to rooftop bars, you and your pup can be seen out together almost anywhere. One bar that is especially dog-friendly is Upstairs At Caroline, an unbelievable rooftop bar with dogs of all shapes and sizes visiting galore. Who says girls' night has to mean going out with your human BFF?
If it wasn't obvious already, Upstairs At Caroline isn't your average Austin bar, but for a couple of reasons. The doggy paradise is made up of Caroline, Upstairs At Caroline and Coffeehouse At Caroline. The restaurant portion serves delicious food for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner. Plus the bar has tasty drinks to match all your meals. There's almost always a special going on during the week, so be sure to check out their website before you go to know just how much you'll be saving.
Just so you have an idea, if you're thinking of going on a Tuesday, you'll get $2 tacos and $7 prickly pear ritas while on Sunday you'll save 25% if you bring your dog! Insane. The bar literally makes you feel like you're in the most glamorous backyard ever, and all the games they have to play just add to that feeling. They have giant Jenga, shuffleboard, foosball and more. No wonder this place is so popular!
Upstairs At Caroline is open from most of the day during the week and is 21+ past 8 p.m. The restaurant and coffeehouse all have different hours, which their website has listed for you to see. It's hard to find somewhere that meets each one of your needs, but this place does an amazing job of doing just that.
