Come. Sit. Stay. Good Dog.

With walls covered in smug mugs of labs and pugs, the Good Dog is the perfect place to raise a glass to the canine companions that want nothing more out of life than to make their humans happy. Sip a frothy ale or sample a local microbrew in honor of man’s (and woman’s) best friend. Those of you dog mothers and fathers that cannot bear to leave their pups alone longer than the necessary work day hours will understand that social time away from home must be a worthwhile experience.

Good Dog was discovered by the masses a while ago, having received the “Best Bar” distinction by Philadelphia Magazine back in ’04. The after work crowd loves it for the Happy Hour specials, gamers love it for the pool table, dart board, and Megatouch, hipsters love it for the unpretentious atmosphere despite a tony address, and just about everyone loves it for the “signature” fries. Even with a city-wide seal of approval, the Good Dog suffered from one downside: poor air circulation and a crowd that puffed, puffed, and puffed some more. But recently this Rittenhouse rescue got just a little bit better as a result of the smoking ban. Yes ladies, you can now come, sit, and stay all night without rushing your clothes out for an emergency drycleaning the next morning.

So check out the Good Dog, and raise a PBR pounder to the pup that rests at home while you’re out partying.
