Let’s give a round of a-paws — the first dog bar in New England is officially open. The space at 48 Waters Ave. in Everett is the pawfect place for dogs + humans to have a doggone good time under one woof.
City Editor Jess and her dog Reyna went to the preview paw-ty — make sure you follow our Instagram to see how it went. Before you go sniff it out for yourself, here’s what you need to know about Park-9.
Pet parents must register their pooches + upload all required documents on Gingr. Dogs that have incomplete profiles will have to stay outside of the bar.
All dog breeds are welcome in the three areas — the indoor on-leash section and 5,000-sqft off-leash area, which extends to an outdoor fenced-in turf area. There will also be a dedicated space for small pups (under 25 pounds) at select times.
Park Rangers are stationed inside the off-leash area to help monitor off-leash play closely and break up any conflicts.
There are two bars for the thirsty humans to check out and a variety of cocktails, beers + wines to sip in both areas. Pro tip: Order The Bob Barker charity cocktail, which supports Sweet Paws Rescue. Don’t forget your dog while at the bar — order a dog brew or a treat like the “Good Dog Flight,” featuring a dog beer and a beer mug cookie.
There is free parking available on the street + a public parking lot at 1 Rivergreen Dr.
