Nashville: Our Favorite Pet-Friendly Spots

Are you heading on a trip and looking for the best pet-friendly spots? Curious about what your hometown has to offer for you and your pet? We did the searching and hit the town with our pets to see what’s worth checking out. This month we explored Nashville’s top pet-friendly places that are worth a visit. 

Yardstick Dog Hotel
The innovative boutique Yardstick Dog Hotel is taking a different approach to dog hospitality. Their smaller-by-design concept offers personalized care in a stress-free, elevated environment. Your dog will get the ultimate VIP treatment with spacious suites, sofa lounges, outdoor play yards, and more. Their services include boarding, daycare, and bath time. There's even a curated room service menu that offers stimulating toys and irresistible dog treats including Yummers (of course!) to pamper your pooch. 

Butchertown Hall in Germantown
Butchertown Hall has a dog-friendly patio plus savory smoked meats, tasty tacos, and must-have margaritas. The founder, Terry Raley, created Butchertown Hall to be a modern barbecue, inspired by central Texas meat market culture and 19th-century butcher shops. There, you can enjoy melt-in-your-mouth meats, smoked brisket, craft tacos, roasted oysters, and more next to an impressive 36-square-foot open-fire hearth and larger-than-life smoker.

Centennial Dog Park
A stop by Centennial Dog Park is a must to enjoy plenty of benches, shade, and water fountains. The park is perfect for both large and small dogs, with separate spaces for each size so everyone stays safe and happy during their visit. One of Nashville’s most popular dog parks, Centennial is the perfect place to help your pup burn excess energy while they make new dog and human friends.

At the heart of The Gulch is Adele’s, a culinary must-see spot offering premium farm-to-table comfort food, refreshing cocktails, and a renowned weekend brunch buffet. When you visit, you can enjoy salmon belly carpaccio, pork loin, and a glass of wine outside on their patio while your pup takes in new sites and smells. Whenever you go, you and your dog can make friends and discover delicious food you’ll be craving for weeks to come.
