Holy moly: We just got word that Calhoun Square, THE destination for shopping, dining, and entertaining in Uptown, is now (mostly) dog-friendly indoors! In addition to daily dog-walking hours, they’ll also allow pooches inside during normal business hours in many areas. Pup yeah!
Before you hop in the C-A-R and cruise over there, check out these details:
All of the dog-friendly fun starts June 1, with walking hours in Calhoun Square from 7am-10am, seven days a week. After the businesses of Calhoun Square officially open at 10am, common areas and shops marked with Sidewalk Dog stickers are still dog-friendly!
Thanks to this pawesome, climate-controlled shopping center, you and your pup will stay comfy and socialized all summer long, even on super hot or rainy days. There are other perks to spending time with your pup at Calhoun Square, too. First up: there’s a ton of interesting local art to enjoy while you walk. On top of that, you’ll be super close to the chain of lakes (just blocks from Lake Calhoun Park!), so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to go out and enjoy nature after you shop.
There are also multiple dog-friendly patios attached to Calhoun Square to help you cool down after some quality walking. If you’re craving sustainable coffee, wine, and food options (did someone say “all-day breakfast?”), People’s Organic is a great place to spend some quality time with your pup. Looking for your BBQ fix? Head over to Calhoun Square’s Famous Dave’s!
Super duper important: Leashed, friendly, well-behaved dogs only, if you please. Be respectful of others’ space by using a standard, non-retractable leash. If you stick around after the dog-walking hours, always keep to the places designated with Sidewalk Dog stickers. And if your dog happens to have an accident, doo clean it up right away!
