Looking for Hong Kong’s best dog-friendly cafés, bars, and restaurants? Then you’ve come to the right place.

Heading out but leaving your furry friend at home? Then make sure to check out our full guide to finding pet sitters in Hong Kong.

Maybe your pooch is more of a night owl than an early riser and prefers going out for sundowners with you. There’s plenty of dog-friendly bars around, usually with a decent happy hour and some furry friends for your pooch to play with while you sink a cold one.

Cocktails not your thing? Blue Supreme has a mouth watering selection of craft beers (and a few wine options) influenced by Belgian brews. Sour beers, saisons, and ales are their specialities, but they also source beers from local breweries for the less adventurous drinkers. The food menu labels itself as “modern American bistro” (think burgers, steaks, and salads, but a bit fancier than your usual bar grub). Nestled on a quiet side street off Hollywood Road, dogs are free to roam outside the bar and the friendly bar staff are always happy to make new furry friends.

Very dog friendly, the bar opens up onto the pavement so you’ll often find at least one pooch chilling under a table. Even better, if you’re celebrating your dog’s birthday, you can pre-order a dog cake and invite their furry pals for happy hour.

Dog-friendly restaurants in Hong Kong

Dog-friendly restaurants are definitely popular in HK these days and you can now find a decent spot in almost every neighborhood to bring your doggo with you for lunch or dinner.
