There’s an abundance of fantastic bars and pubs around Perth, but did you ever wonder where can you find a Dog-Friendly Bar in Perth? Well, so did we, because who doesn’t like to bring their best mate along for a refreshing beverage. Keep reading to learn more about our Top 10 dog-friendly bars and pubs in Perth.
Before we get to the great bars and pubs, let’s quickly look at what being a dog-friendly venue means in WA. Despite dogs being the most common pet in Australia, fundamentally speaking, we’re not as dog-friendly as many other countries in the world. While you can bring your pup inside fine dining restaurants in Paris and take them on metro rides in Vienna, it’s a bit of a different story in Australia.
Legally speaking, we have something that’s called the State Food Act, and what it does is that it prohibits dogs from food premises. It means that dogs aren’t allowed in places of food consumption, and it’s something that our local governments are responsible for enforcing.
So what makes a dog-friendly place in Australia? It’s when a proprietor of a venue decides to permit dogs in alfresco areas. For the time being, that’s as good as it’s going to get, unfortunately. So while we wait for better days, let’s have a look at some of the bars and pubs in Perth who are already making a difference, by having dog-friendly alfresco areas.
