We ain’t knocking the island, but the price of living here has gotten insane. Actually, who are we kidding, it’s simply staying insane. Add to that, a lack of friendly bars, with friendly patrons, and their friendly dogs.

Fair enough – it’s a little island.

But the fellas at Growlers (get it?) refused to let that lay down (get it?) and opened up a spot so laid-back and dog-friendly, you’d think you were somewhere upstate. A beer tap worthy of a “cocktail” status, small plates, great location and an even more-impressive cocktail bar (Underdog) make this a staff favorite.

Best for: Small to medium dogs, people who complain about NYC prices, but still stay, outdoor-sy types, people who shop at REI.
