It can be tricky to find dog-friendly places online, so we did the legwork for you!
A road trip isn't complete without your best friend, but when your BF has four legs, logistics are a little more complex –– especially with the heat this summer. It can be tricky to find dog-friendly places online, so we did the legwork for you! Medicine Hat has several fantastic dog-friendly patios that are totally worth visiting!
Hell's Basement Brewery
Hell's Basement Brewery are true dog lovers, with many of the staff bringing their furry friends with them to work. Hell's Basement has expanded their drink options for all tastes, and their patio is family-friendly. If beer isn't your thing––pick from their rotating list of hard sodas or their non-alcoholic Heck-of-a Root Beer!
Local Public Eatery (boardwalk only)
Go where the locals go! This bustling eatery has a great outdoor setup in the heart of downtown Medicine Hat. With a great menu and even better beverage selection, serving all of our city's brewery and distillery options, you won't be disappointed. Dogs are welcome on the boardwalk of the patio, which is set up only during the summer months.
Medicine Hat Brewing Company
With 23 taps of Timeless Craft Beer, MH Brew Co is a must-try when searching for the best Medicine Hat patios. So share a plate of fresh, house-made pretzels and enjoy the 'out-of-town' feeling of this rustic patio. Bonus: This brewery is on the outskirts of town, so if you're just stopping through for a quick bite to eat (and to fill your growlers), you and your furry friend don't have to venture too far off the trail. Especially handy if you're hauling a camper!
The Silver Buckle
Grab a $5.55 steak sandwich for yourself and one for your dog! The Silver Buckle is a popular local hangout with a dog-friendly patio and frequently has live music. Check their socials to see their most recent events!
Station Coffee Co.
One of Medicine Hat's only pup-friendly cafe options. Station Coffee Co is the perfect place to stop for a coffee and enjoy the sunshine on their patio. Station Coffee is located downtown, and it's a great stop while doing some shopping, sightseeing (see our self-guided tours) or enjoying our nearby city parks. They also have some delicious food (light meals) and treats (often with GL options available).
Swirls Ice Cream
If you're looking to satisfy your sweet tooth, Swirls is a must-visit. This Medicine Hat staple is the perfect pitstop for you and your pup to grab a cone. Their offerings are never-ending and even include vegan ice cream options!
Travois Ale Works
Medicine Hat's newest brewery and latest patio addition! Sit in the sunshine and sip on a brew or kombucha downtown on 3rd Street. Travois Ale Works routinely features new brew creations, like their immediately famous Hibiscus Ginger Mead, Biscotti Milk Stout, and Guava Lime Blonde Ale. This patio is the perfect place for you and Spot to people-watch.
Moose & Squirrel Artisan Village
Ice cream, sundaes, floats and dog-friendly. Need we say more? Another new resident of downtown Medicine Hat, Moose & Squirrel guests can enjoy their dog-friendly outdoor patio and treat themselves to some buttermilk and whole cream deliciousness (Dairy-free options also available). Located 5 minutes from Hwy 1, Moose and Squirrel Market is the perfect place for travellers to stop and stretch their legs.
