It’s patio season in KCMO! Especially after this past
winter, we’ve been waiting for warmer weather and outdoor entertainment for what
seemed like ages. Now that temperatures are up it seems like a shame to stay
indoors more than you have to, including when you’re eating out. At Summit we
love our four-legged residents, and would hate to see them left at home while
you’re enjoying the outdoors! Here are some of our favorite local spots that
allow, or even encourage, you to bring your furry friends along.
Established in 2015, MO’ Brew
has quickly become a go-to spot in KCMO. With 26 rotating taps, it’s an obvious
place for all types of beer lovers, and the food is just as good as the beer.
MO’ Brew gives back to the community and features live, local musicians
regularly. They also openly welcome dogs on their outdoor patio, so you can
enjoy some pints without leaving your pooch at home.

With two locations, one in River
Market and one in Nelson Atkins, Quay Coffee has offered a delicious cup of
coffee to KCMO since 2012. They may have a simple menu, but that’s because they’re
confident in their coffee. They only work with direct trade roasters, so that
you can feel good about your caffeine intake. What’s even better, is during the
warmer months they have a dog-friendly outdoor seating area. Meet a friend for
a cup of coffee, or bring your favorite book and sip on some artisanal joe
while your furbaby sunbathes next to you.

Bark at the Park
We love our Royals at Summit on
Quality Hill! Did you know there are some opportunities to bring your furry
friend to a game, too? Every year the Kansas City Royals host Bark at the Park
days, when you get the chance to bring your dog to enjoy an evening of Royals
baseball. You do have to preregister, so head over to their website for dates
and more details. There are a few requirements and suggestions for the pups, so
make sure to read the fine print if you’re unsure about bringing your pooch.

If you’re a resident at Summit
on Quality Hill you should already be familiar with Bar K, as we’ve partnered
with them in the past and have even had some events there! Bar K is a unique
KCMO destination that combines a bar, restaurant, and coffeehouse with a dog
park! A two-acre off-leash dog park with play structures surround the bar and
restaurant area, and trained dog-care professionals are always watching the
furry patrons so you can enjoy your meal or drink without having to worry. They’re
open seven days a week and serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner in addition to regular
special events and other programming.

Proudly original, Grinders is
where food, art, and music collide (and they allow dogs on the patio!). With a
constantly rotating beer menu and unique choices for pizza toppings, this KCMO
pizza joint brings the east coast to Kansas City. While they pride themselves
on the New York-style pizza and Philly cheese steaks, one glance at the menu
will tell you these pizzas and grinders are anything but classic. Meet up with
some friends for a pint, a slice, or dozen “death wings”, and don’t forget to
bring man’s best friend along too!
