Thanks for Sharing: Dog-Friendly Ballard Tips

After finally posting a Map of dog-friendly spots in the Seattle area, I was grateful to receive several tips on additional dog-friendly establishments for inclusion. Thank you to Eric, for sharing these three dog-friendly locations in Ballard:

King’s Hardware and Hazelwood are 100% dog friendly. Pono Ranch has a very dog friendly patio.

King’s Hardware
5225 Ballard Ave NW, Seattle
(206) 782-0027


Very popular Ballard bar. Full bar, pub fare, skeeball and outdoor patio. Reportedly dog-friendly inside and on the patio.

2311 NW Market St, Seattle
(206) 783-0478

Fancy Ballard Speak-Easy-esque lounge serving craft cocktails and no food. Unassuming but swanky ambience. Reportedly dog-friendly inside.

Pono Ranch
4502 Shilshole Ave NW, Seattle
(206) 258-2162


Popular outdoor area with desert backyard BBQ feel. Full bar and menu including breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner. Outdoor patio area very popular among dog-owners. Not dog-friendly inside.

    Chuck’s Hop Shop is also dog-friendly indoors. There are two locations, Greenwood and Central District. Both have over 3 dozen beers on tap and several hundred other brews in bottles/cans. Snacks are available for purchase inside (pretzels, peanuts, ice cream) and they usually have a food truck/cart right outside the front door.

    Kangaroo & Kiwi in Ballard (2026 NW Market St) is dog friendly in their beer garden and have seen picture of dogs in Ballard Coffee Works (2060 NW Market St) as well 🙂

      Thanks so much for sharing! I’m hoping to put together a post of Seattle area dog-friendly patios as summer seems to be coming early this year!
