Top 6 Indoor Places to Bring your Pup this Winter

February 15, 2018 by Joe Grunnet

In Minneapolis we can enjoy some of the best restaurants, shopping, and entertainment the Twin Cities has to offer with our friends and loved ones, even in the winter! But what about that other special someone is your life: your dog! Winters in Minnesota can be tough on our furry friends. With freezing temperatures, our dogs are not able to enjoy all the great outdoor activities they grown to love in the warm summer months.

At DRG we are passionate about our pets, and we know you are too! And our dogs go everyone with us, even to the office! We compiled a list of our favorite indoor hotspots that you can bring your dog this winter!

1. Who doesn’t love walking to their favorite local coffee shop on a Saturday morning? And at In The Loop Coffee Co., you can bring your dog along too! Located in the North Loop right above the Acme Comedy Company, you will be able to enjoy handcrafted drinks while your furry friend snacks on organic doggy treats.

2. After you enjoy your morning cup of coffee, be sure to stop by MartinPatrick 3 with your furry friend. This luxury men’s clothing store also offers stylish furniture and gifts. And did we mention they have two gorgeous black poodles as their shop dogs? We think that is a good enough reason to swing by!

3. Lole is the perfect place for those who like to be active with their pups. Lole Stands for “Live Out Loud Everyday” and offers active wear for the active, urban women. Pick up your new workout gear before you and your dog take off on your next run.

4. Breweries are one of our favorite places to bring our pups. There are lots of local breweries in Minneapolis that not only have great outdoor seating in the summer, but also allow you to bring your dog inside during those cold winter months. Our favorite is Modist Brewing in the North Loop serving a variety of hand crafted brews.

5. If you aren’t a beer lover, try one of the cities local distilleries! Wander North Distillery is a great place to enjoy the company of your friends, both human and animal. Enjoy a seasonal drink while playing board games in their lounge.

6. Last but certainly not least, is the Downtown Resource Group office in the North Loop! Feel free to stop by our offices anytime with your pup to pick up a treat or join us on March 3rd from 11am-1pm for our Dogs of DRG open house event. You will have an opportunity to get a free portrait with you and your pet, meet local pet vendors, and more!
