Traveling with your four-legged companion? Well, you’re in luck! Cincinnati is an incredibly dog-friendly city. Here are a few of our favorite places to take our furry friends. And bonus! Now through the end of 2021, book your stay at 21c Cincinnati and we’ll waive our pet fee now thru December 31, 2021.
16-Bit Bar & Arcade
Unleash your inner child (and leash up your hound) at 16-Bit Bar & Arcade. Grab a boozy slushie and relive your childhood years with over 50 (free!) vintage arcade games, including Donkey Kong, Duck Hunt, Street Fighter, and Tapper. Pets are allowed indoors during the day as long as the bar isn’t crowded.
Queen City Radio
Queen City Radio Bar & Beer Garden has a huge outdoor patio with plenty of space for your four-legged friend to wag their tail. Built inside of a 1920’s-era gas and car service station and located in Cincinnati’s Historic Over the Rhine neighborhood, the bar is named after the original business which was known as the go-to spot for car radio service in the mid 20th century.
Madtree Brewery also has a huge beer garden with taps outside so you don’t have to leave your hound to grab a refill.
The Porch at Washington Park
Looking for a spot to have a picnic? Head to Washington Park in OTR, which has over 6-acres of open park space. Thirsty? Grab a drink at The Porch to enjoy while you soak up the sun from your picnic blanket.
Findlay Market Beirgarten
Mt. Airy Forest
Reaching over 1,400-acres, Mt. Airy Forest is the perfect place to hike with your leashed pal. There’s also an enclosed dog park for your dog to roam on their own. While you’re in the Mt. Airy area, treat your trusted companion to a “Pup Cup” from Putz’z Creamy Whip!
Sharon Woods Park
Got a dog who enjoys a more casual stroll with an equally impressive view? Sharon Woods Park has several nature and paved trails which range from easy to moderate and about 1 to over 2.5 miles in length. As long as they are on a leash, dogs are welcome!
