As a new bar lets customers walk in with their pets, we round up the city’s pet-friendly dine-out options
Launched on November 25, Zoo Bar has a 34ft bar, and will serve 13 types of beers, besides six types of craft. You can take your furry friend along to the open area of the bar from 2pm to 7pm. Post that, you can leave your pet in a kennel on the premises. A special menu for pets is available too. It doesn’t end there: you can book the place for your pet’s birthday party, and the chef will whip up cakes for your pet and its friends. A soft board at the entrance also lets you stick pictures of pets up for adoption.

Birthday bashes, Christmas celebrations, picnics and theme parties. Soups, canapés, risotto, lasagne, pies and yogurt-based ice creams. No, not for you, but for your four-legged companion. Launched a couple of years ago, this pop-up pet café’s tagline reads ‘humans allowed’.
