Cover dog: @nelsonthegoldendoodle at Happiest Hour
(If you don’t think this is the most iconic photo ever, you’re wrong)
When 3 o’clock rolls around, my happy hour senses start flaring up; the only cure is to grab my pup and swing over to one of these dog-friendly patios. These happy hour deals are some of the best I’ve seen and they are also dog-friendly…double whammy!
Their happy hour includes eight rotating select drafts for $4, craft cocktails for $6, and bubbles and wine for $6. I got my eye on the “Anytime Old Fashioned” for $6. As a former Wisconsinite, a good old- fashioned warms my heart.
When: Sunday through Friday, 5 to 7 pm
Where: 3520 Greenville Ave Dallas, TX 75206
I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about Mash’d and when I saw their $4 Illegal Endeavors deal, I was sold. These $4 “Illegal Endeavors” are made from fresh lemon, moonshine, tequila, organic agave, cayenne, swirled w/ firewater sangria and topped w/ blackberry moonshine. They also offer $3 off all speciality drinks, $3 20oz domestic draughts, $4 20oz premium draughts,
When: Monday, all day; Tuesday through Saturday, 3 to 6; Sun, 3 to close
Where: 2848 Crockett St Fort Worth, TX 76107
Cold Beer Co offers $1 off drafts, wells and wine. I know, this isn’t the best deal around, but their deal for Cowboy’s games is kick-butt… $3 drafts for all in-season Cowboys games. Also, they have daily specials that are solid.
When: Monday through Friday, 4 to 7 pm
Where: 3600 Main St, Dallas, TX 75226
I like a place where I can eat AND drink for cheap and High Fives offers just that! Don’t be fooled by the cheap prices though ($5 sandwiches, beer, wine and cocktails), High Fives offers amazing food and drinks. I’ve got my eye on their “Roxy” cocktail: bourbon, lavender syrup, cucumber, lime and ginger beer.
When: Monday through Friday, 4 to 7pm; all day Tuesday
Where: 1804 McMillan Ave Dallas, TX 75206

Lazy Dog is already great because of their dog menu, but their happy hour makes them awesome. On the patio, you can enjoy discounted cocktails, beer and appetizers while your pooch enjoys something off their dog menu. That’s a win-win.
When: Monday through Friday, 3 to 6 pm; Sunday through Thursday, 9 to close
Where: 5100 Belt Line Rd Suite 500 Addison, TX 75254

The first thing that stood out to me is that Eastwood’s happy hour goes until 8pm, which is great for those who prefer a later happy hour. The second thing that stood out to me is that they literally have $3 select cocktails. Uhm, yes…$3 select wine and cocktails, $2 beer and half priced apps.
When: Monday through Friday, 4 to 8pm
Where: 3407 McKinney Ave Dallas, TX 75204
When at Backyard, expect to play corn hole, giant Jenga and other games while you sip on their great cocktails. They have great daily specials (see picture below) along with happy hour specials:
$3 domestic drafts
$5 wells, bubbly, craft draft and house wine
$7 frozen and craft cocktails.
When: Monday through Friday, 3 to 7pm
Where: 505 N Good Latimer Expy Dallas, TX 75204
As the name suggests, Happiest Hour has some great happy hour deals. You’re looking at $3.50 Domestic Pints, $5 House Wines and Wells and $10 Specialty Cocktails. They even have team drinks to share with a couple buds (anyone wanna tag-team the 62 oz of Frozé?)
