A List of Dog-Friendly Places in Hoboken

Let’s face it, no one has loved quarantine as much as dogs have. Spending more time with your humans, and getting to experience things you normally wouldn’t as a dog-owner duo. Therefore – more than ever – humans are asking where they can take their pups. Whether it’s a new quarantine pup or a dog who’s been part of your family for years – we all are craving a little more time with our four-legged friends. So if you’re looking to better understand what places in Hoboken allow dogs in their space, keep reading for a list of places in the Mile Square that are dog friendly.

The question you may be wondering, however, is “Why do some spots allow dogs and not others?”

The answer and reason, we’ve researched, is food. If the sit-down restaurant or bar serves food, your little buddy is not allowed to come with you inside as that would be a health code violation. Some of these allow dogs outside in the area for outdoor dining, so we’ve included them if so! 

Please email hello@hobokengirl.com if you have any addition suggestions.
