As the weather in Chicago improves and the vague memory of that large warm object in the sky surfaces, inevitably you will want to venture out to explore, likely with your four legged furry friend. There are plenty of places that don't allow pets, but every once in a while it's nice to bring Fido along. Here's a few bars/restaurants that allow dogs in the Lakeview Area of Chicago. When you're finished, pop over to our Dog Lounge to let your pup get some socialization at SIT Social: A Dog Lounge in Lakeview (3920 North Ashland Avenue, Chicago, IL 60613).

Crosby’s Kitchen, 3455 N Southport Ave Chicago, IL 60657. Heated patio that seats 75 and will provide water and treat bowls for your pet.  

Southport Lanes & Billards, 3325 N Southport Ave Chicago, IL 60657. This remodeled historic sport has room for humans and dogs alike, though the bowling alley may be a bit loud for their sensitive ears.

Kitsch’n on Roscoe, Roscoe Village, 2005 W Roscoe St Chicago, IL 60618. The bar and back garden are for humans only, but the patioside seating has treats, water, and a Partridge Family bus for your pup to stare at.
