Greater Palm Springs is head over heels in puppy love with our furry pals—especially when it comes to pet-friendly patio restaurants. From lush gardens to establishments with exclusive dog menus, these local patios give every dog a way to have its day in the oasis. Are you all ears yet? Then check out these pawsitively perfect patios for pooches.
After a ruff day of tail wagging, ball fetching, and face licking, what pup wouldn’t want to put his paws up and enjoy an ice-cold beer? Dogs that dig yappy hour shouldn’t miss the Pinzimini patio at The Westin Mission Hills in Rancho Mirage. Not only can they lap up a cold one (don’t worry – it’s dog-friendly and alcohol-free), but they can also dine on their very own bowl from the Patio Pooch menu. And if you really want to spoil your pal, go for the doggy dessert: a peanut butter and banana cookie.
Put the “wow” in bow-wow as you fall in puppy love at Melange at The Chateau at Lake La Quinta. This pooch-friendly patio sits right on the lake, offering incredible views of the water to enjoy with dinner. Treat your best friend to a bite from the restaurant’s very own dog-friendly menu as you watch night fall upon the desert, and don’t be surprised if Fido begs to come back!
