Get ready for some four-legged socializing, complete with adult beverages!
If you're looking to meet other furbaby parents, then head to Bark Social in Bethesda. The unique off-leash dog park has a full menu for both people and pooches, including beer and wine.
- ADDRESS: 935 Prose Street | North Bethesda, MD
- HOURS: 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily
- PHONE: (240) 253-6060
- WEBSITE: Bark Social
You can visit for the day to give it a try, sign up for a month, or even buy an annual membership. Amenities include a secure, fenced area to let your dog roam and trained park rangers who will even clean up your buddy's poop. The biggest perk is the instant group of like-minded friends you'll make and all the potential playdates down the road.
Two different menus will appeal to both two- and four-legged visitors. You can get everything from fancy sandwiches to fresh baked goods and wash them down with a wide variety of beverages. Get a flat white in the morning, a chai in the afternoon, and growlers of local beer for happy hour.
The pups will love dog-friendly ice cream, pupcakes, and dried sweet potato treats. Did I mention the dog beers like "IPA Lot in the Yard" and "Mailman Malt Licker"?
Don't worry about your lapdog getting lost in the shuffle. There's a small dog enclosure, complete with seating for parents, that's just the right size for off-leash socialization of the teenier breeds.
For more information or to sign up for a membership package, head to the official Bark Social website. You can also follow their Instagram account for updates and announcements.
