Dubbed "your best friend's bar,” the Watering Bowl is a dog-friendly spot housed in the former Priddy Auction Galleries space on Leetsdale Drive. Although dogs aren’t actually allowed inside of the 13,000-square-foot bar, there are 7,000 additional square feet outside for a fenced-in private dog park. The Watering Bowl has a fully stocked regular bar and a wine bar on the main level, as well as another bar and two VIP lounges upstairs. There are a number of local craft beers available, including varieties from Breckenridge Brewery, Oskar Blues and Dry Dock. In keeping with the dog theme, drinks will be named after dogs or breeds, and areas of the bar are named after dogs, as well.
