Editor’s note: Each month Oliver (the four-legged cofounder of Metro Dogs Daycare & Boarding in the North Loop) spills the kibble on the best dog-friendly spots in his favorite neighborhood.

Intimate, dreamy, relaxing: Bev’s is the classic neighborhood wine bar you’ve been looking for. It features a convenient North Loop locale but still gives you those off-the-beaten-path feels. In the more than two decades since it was established, Bev’s has earned a reputation for being the perfect spot for happy hours and date nights. We’re talkin’ perfect pours of house-selected wines and a snackable menu of cheeses, greens, and pizzas. (Editor’s note: Their Caesar salad paired with a cool Pinot Grigio would make an ahh-mazing summer combo.)

All this and dog-friendly? You betcha! Not only is their patio perfect for doggos who love to lounge, Bev’s offers water bowls and treats for your four-legged friends. You and your BFF will be treated to views of the downtown skyline while enjoying a drink with friends.

And if wine’s not your thing? Beer and cocktails are on offer, too.

Don’t just take our woof for it. Here’s what their reviewers have to say:

  • “Great for a date for a drink…I loved visiting this place…can’t wait to come back. Service was excellent: friendly and helpful.”
  • “Bev’s is cozy…Their patio has an awesome view of downtown and is still quiet enough to be enjoyable.”

So leash up your pup and head to Bev’s before summer’s end. Tell ’em Sidewalk Dog sent you, and don’t forget to leave a review in our directory! (Love wine? You NEED our Wine Pass!)
