Adrianne
This list is SO helpful! I'd love to also know which of these places are dog-friendly indoors as well! We just moved to Memphis and we've got a sweet pup we like to bring everywhere with us. We've been to Loflin Yard a few times and I love that we can bring him indoors with us and we'd love to know of some other places as well during these cold months!

Hi Adrianne! I did not realize that dogs were allowed inside bars/restaurants...so asked this question on Twitter and got some interesting responses, including several people who informed me that this is illegal in TN. You can read the full thread here: https://twitter.com/ilovememphis/status/1206645603222130689?s=20 Taprooms like Memphis Made, Wiseacre, and High Cotton have sort of indoor/outdoor spaces and seem to get away with it. I have definitely seen dogs inside The Cove bar on Broad. You can also bring your dog into Crosstown Concourse and Puck Food Hall since those are more public spaces that just happen to have bars and restaurants inside. Enjoy your pup and exploring these spots!
