As the capital of Georgia and the ninth largest metropolitan area in the country, Atlanta has no shortage of things to do, and with tons of parks, pet boutiques and a number of dog-friendly restaurants in the city, Fido can tag along, too.

To help point you in the right direction, here’s a list of the top five dog-friendly places in Atlanta.

Hotel Indigo

Right across the street from the historic Fox Theatre in Midtown is Hotel Indigo, a centrally located, boutique hotel that also happens to be one of the most dog-friendly establishments in the city. As a completely pet-friendly hotel, Hotel Indigo caters to the canine species as well as their loyal owners. During the nicer months, the hotel hosts Canine Cocktails happy hours, where tail-wagging happy hour guests can enjoy complimentary biscuits and a water bar and humans can imbibe signature cocktails, like the “Off the Leash” or the “French Bulldog” and casual nibbles from the hotel’s 683 Bar & Bistro restaurant.

ParkGrounds

After a long day at the dog park, you might need to recharge a bit. So head to Park Grounds Coffee in neighboring Reynoldstown for a great cup of French roast.
