Traveling with Pets to Atlanta
Pet Friendly Happy Hour? You’ll Find it When Traveling with Pets to Atlanta!
Atlanta, Georgia has been a boom town for the better part of the past 15 years. The city has exploded with growth and industry and as a result has become a major tourist destination. Residents of this Southern urban oasis, tout how pet centric “Hotlanta” is. If you are traveling with pets to Atlanta, you will find that many leash-free dog parks dot the cityscape with several offering special amenities for its visitors. Pet friendly hotels, restaurants, bars, happy hours and even a full service doggy spa all await your hound when you take a trip to Atlanta, Georgia.
If you like your cocktails and find the idea of hanging out with your hound enjoying a nice vodka gimlet to be right up your alley, you’re in luck. Every Tuesday from 5pm to 8pm, Atlanta’s Hotel Indigo has Canine Cocktail Hour. The event features snacks for both humans and hounds as well as the famous signature Indigo martini for the doggie parents. The Hotel Indigo has no weight limit for its canine guests, so whether you’ve got a Bichon or a Bernese Mountain Dog, your pup will be welcomed with open arms at the Hotel Indigo, and the staff will discreetly slip a martini into your hand – ok, maybe not, but a girl with a hyperactive Lab can dream, right? Visit our pet friendly restaurant listings with maps so you can chart your course!
