The stunning beaches of Adelaide are the pawfect place to unwind, rejuvenate and spend some quality time with your pup. After a big day on the sandy shores, it’s time to treat you and your pooch at some of Adelaide’s best dog friendly bars.

We have listed the best combinations of dog friendly beaches and dog friendly bars in Adelaide, South Australia. Are you ready to go From Beach To Bar with your dog?

FROM Henley Beach…

…TO Bacchus Bar

Distance: 5 minutes walk

The long stretch of fine sand known as Henley Beach draws swimmers, paddle-boarders and plenty of dog walkers. Henley is famous for its mellow, seaside feel and a vibrant food scene, and the beach is the pawfect place for your pup to stretch their legs, have a splash in the sea and meet other furry friends.

When their energy has all burnt up (and so has yours), walk a short 5 minutes to the waterfront wine bar, Bacchus Bar. With its very own ‘Pooch Park’, which includes water bowls, toys, plants and even leash clips, your furry friend will never want to leave! There are even dog friendly muffins for your pal to munch on while you relax and sip on some of Adelaide’s finest wines and enjoy the beach views.


FROM Glenelg Beach…

TO Grand Bar Hotel

Distance: 1 minute walk

Take a stroll along the jetty before a splash and a play on the popular Glenelg Beach. Your pup will love taking a dip in the warm water and the bustling vibes of the beach and nearby Glenelg Square.

Just a couple of paw steps from the beach, you’ll find the dog friendly Grand Bar Hotel. It’s the ideal pupstop, with water bowls for your pooch, and a range of craft beers and wines for you. The outdoor seating area offers plenty of cover and exceptional sunset views.
