Nightlife for dogs – SkyBark

The USA and Australia really do seem to have the best when it comes to dogs. Here in the UK, we seem a touch behind; let’s see if we can change that!

In the past, we’ve bemoaned the lack of dog-friendly venues for British dog owners. The excellent DoggiePubs is filled with details of dog-friendly pubs but, last time I looked, there’s no mention of a stylish city-centre bar that welcomes dogs.

SkyBark is a new event in Los Angeles that brings art, music and dogs together! Held in downtown LA’s Hanger 1018 gallery/bar, on March 25, the night will feature a canine couture show, pet art and photography and, importantly, the opportunity to adopt dogs in need of a home.

While many British pubs welcome your mutt with a bowl of water, SkyBark’s got something a bit more special planned. Treats and cocktails, created specially for the event, will be available for all the dogs in attendance, as well as the occassional something for their owners. There’ll be plenty to keep the mutts busy, with play areas for each size of dog and canine toilets courtesy of the night’s organiser, PetaPotty.
