~ built for dogs with humans in mind ~


"I created this concept after adopting my dog, Cash. I wanted to bring her everywhere with me but we were disappointed with the current dog park experience: lots of waste, closed randomly, and no shade or seating for the humans! The only other place we could go to together were these so-called "dog-friendly" restaurants. I like to call them "dog-tolerant" because they really aren't fun for our dogs and non-dog parents at these establishments are not thrilled to have a bunch of dogs there."

"I knew there had to be a better way to Dog Park and a more welcoming food and beverage concept for humans to go to with their dogs. That is when The Barking Lot PHX was born! We have been hosting off-leash events for dogs and humans to enjoy together for the past year and a half and we just secured our first permanent location!

We will be opening Arizona's first dog park/ bar & restaurant this year at 1490 E Weber Drive in Tempe!

Founding Memberships are now on sale and we would love for everyone to join our Day One Dogs community! Come relax, enjoy a coffee or beer while your dog plays in our HUGE off-leash park! We will even pick up your dog's dodo for you ;)"
