Traveling with an animal companion? Though dogs are not allowed on the beach and must be licensed for dog parks, Santa Monica is famously pet-friendly, and these local establishments are happy to welcome furry friends.

Art’s Table

Art’s Table boasts more than 50 outdoor seats for accommodating guests and dogs of all sizes. Dog owners won’t want to miss the eatery’s monthly yappy hour, featuring food and drink specials and yummy treats for pooches.

Ashland Hill

Guests can always enjoy Ashland Hill’s delectable pub fare and craft brews with their canine companions at their sides. The restaurant includes a number of scrumptious pet meals during a monthly “yappy hour.”

At Paws & Effect Spa, dogs and cats are the center of attention—the spa pampers its guests with various grooming packages and glamour services, including “pawdicures,” brush-outs, blowouts and custom full-body haircuts, all of which are accompanied by soothing aromatherapy to keep animals relaxed.
