Finally, a place is coming to Illinois where customers can have a few drinks while hanging out with their dog.

Bar With Dog Park Opening In Illinois

People love their pets in Illinois. Of course, dogs are man's best friend. Their owners like to spend time with them but sometimes they like to go out and interact with other humans. That usually means leaving their puppy at home. Illinois is going to have a new option soon. It's a bar with its own indoor dog park.

The place will be opening soon in Chicago. It's called The B-A-R. The name was inspired by how dog owners can't say the word walk out loud, they just spell it because the dog will go crazy.

Even though there are many pet-friendly businesses throughout Illinois, this one is unique. Of course, there is a full-service bar for the owners to enjoy. The location will also have a dog-friendly patio. Here's the thing that helps them stand out. It will also have an indoor dog park.

The indoor dog park used to be a nursery back in the day. It's right next store so it's now connected to the bar. All of the pets must be up-to-date shots. Day and monthly passes will both be available.

I love this concept because I have a couple of friends who love taking their dogs out with them. Unfortunately, the options are minimal so this is a great opportunity for the owners to get out and have a good time while hanging out with their best friend.
