We all know the popularity of pet-friendly cafes, but what about pet-friendly bars?

If you’re a fur parent, you probably love the idea of having brunch with your furkids at a pet-friendly venue; bonus points if the venue makes for a perfect photo-op, too.

Did you know that there’s quite a number of pet-friendly bars you can head to, for those days when you just feel like chilling with a pint, but you don’t want to leave your four-legged best friend at home?

If you’re thinking of grabbing a drink and vibing with your doggos, we’ve got you covered with a list of the most delightful pet-friendly bars Singapore has to offer.

1. Yeastside (King Albert Park)

KAP Residences, 01-09, 9 King Albert Park
Open: Wednesday to Sunday (9am to 11pm)

Why visit? The popular King Albert Park establishment serves up artisanal bakes in the day, but turns into an idyllic pet-friendly destination at night. Pop by, and you’ll see many pups basking in the soft glow of the festooned fairy lights. 

What’s more, it’s got a pretty extensive curation of craft beers that come fresh from the tap — a match made in heaven for pet-owning craft-beer connoisseurs. Do note that only KAP outlet, and not its Farrer Park outlet, is pet-friendly.

Price range: $$

Crowd favourites: Besides the range of craft beers on tap that are constantly on rotation, Yeastside is best known for its sourdough pizzas, which are only available from 4pm onwards. 

Expect all kinds of toppings ranging from the simple queen margherita (S$18, tomato sauce, mozzarella, fresh basil and olive oil) to quirkier creations such as the char-grilled chicken pesto (S$24, pesto, garlic-roasted tomatoes, chargrilled chicken, mozzarella and yellow onions).

2. Bee’s Knees at the Garage

The Garage, Level 1, Singapore Botanic Gardens, 50 Cluny Park Road
Open: Monday to Sunday (8am to 10pm)

Why visit? Here’s a great addition to any Botanic Gardens itinerary: Bee’s Knees is an aesthetic little nook that serves as a chill brunch spot by day and buzzy bar by night. If you’re planning to bring your furkids out to explore the Botanic Gardens, consider swinging by this pet-friendly bar for an aperitif or two after your adventure.

Price range: $$

Crowd favourites: Bistro-style bites are the establishment’s bread and butter, which means diners shouldn’t miss out on signatures such as the smoked chicken mayo pizza (S$28). More importantly, booze is made affordable with its daily happy hour from 6pm to 8pm, with two premium house cocktails going for S$30 nett. These include the Passionate (vodka, passionfruit, orange and grenadine).

If you’re not fussed about what you’re drinking, head down between Mondays and Thursdays from 5pm to 8pm, where you can get S$10 house pour spirits and an even better deal of two house cocktails for S$25 nett. House cocktails include the grapefruit Stardust (gin, peach and fresh grapefruit).

3. Raw Kitchen Bar

Kallang Rivergreen Building, 01-01, 66 Kampong Bugis
Open: Thursday and Friday (5.30pm to 11pm), Saturday and Sunday (11.30am to 11pm)

Why visit? To us, the idyllic ambience at Raw Kitchen Bar makes it one of the best date night spots. But it can also be a great option for an evening with your furkid, as both of you get to revel in nature, thanks to the quirky Bali-inspired decor and lush greens surrounding you. Needless to say, you also get to enjoy good food and drinks.

Price range:  $$$

Crowd favourites: After three years, Raw Kitchen Bar will be host to a new concept in collaboration with homegrown brands Grain Traders and Bunker Bunker starting from Sept 28. The menu focuses on chicken rotisserie and is fittingly named “Coop Coop”.

But many of its Bali-inspired all-time favourites still remain on the menu, including the fall-off-the-bone pork ribs with Warung glaze (from S$32) and intensely smokey Black Mamba (S$27) squid-ink fried rice. Plus, the all-day Thursday happy hour will make your visit worthwhile with a melange of spirits, beers and wine priced at just S$12.

Why visit? As its name suggests, Orh Gao Taproom (which translates to “black dog” in Hokkien) is a pet-friendly bar, and also one of the most popular craft beer joints in Singapore.

This Serene Centre stalwart offers a large outdoor seating area, where your furkids can chill while you join in the rambunctious carousing that goes down every weekend.

Crowd favourites: As the sibling concept of Yeastside, enthusiastic beer guzzlers can be assured that this craft-beer hotspot offers a carefully curated lineup of craft beers on tap, paired with delicious bar bites.

Orh Gao pays homage to local flavours with a plethora of hearty dishes that go perfectly with drinks — think roasted pork belly (S$13), pari bakar (sambal grilled stingray, S$15) and a highly raved har cheong gai (fried prawn paste chicken wings, S$13).

Why visit? There is no shortage of beach clubs in Sentosa to bring your pups, but many of the popular ones are often brimming with both people and pets, so it can be hard to find a spot and truly relax.

Consider Coastes, a laidback seaside bar that has seating right on the sand. While many prefer to visit Coastes for light brunch, the pet-friendly space is also a conducive drinking venue, for it offers a plethora of boozy options. Nothing like sangrias and bubbly beverages to help beat the heat while relaxing by the scenic beach in the evening.

Price range: $$$

Crowd favourites: Coaste’s extensive menu might prove daunting for most, as there is a dizzying array of pasta, risotto, pizzas, burgers and more. However, getting yourself a portion or two of its bestselling big plates, such as the fish and chips (S$26) or Hawaiian pizza (S$28), is a surefire way to make your four-legged companion jealous.

It’s the perfect spot for an evening out, promising decadent burgers, laidback vibes by the waterfront and quality time with your furry darlings. 

Price range: $$$

Crowd favourites: When at Three Buns Quayside, burgers are a must-order. While it’s up to personal preference, the luscious classic of Baby Huey (beef patty with ketchup, Tillamook cheddar, pickled onion and spice mayo, S$17) will never go wrong. 

At the same time, every table ought to get a portion of the addictive Naughty Fries Jnr (fries with spiced bearnaise and hot beef chilli, S$10) for sharing. That’s especially true if you’re planning on drinking, because it’s amazing when paired with the affordable martinis (S$16) and signature cocktails (S$16) Three Buns has to offer.
