Are these the kinds of drinking companions you crave? Then you're going to love Watering Bowl, the very dog-friendly bar that could finally open this weekend at 5411 Leetsdale Drive. But according to one reader, dog lovers might find another kind of love here.

Says Anthony:

People take their dogs into bars all the time in Denver. I see it everywhere and it's usually weird, single dudes trying to pick up girls and it almost always works.

Does it work? What are the most dog-friendly bars in Denver? And do you believe dogs should be allowed on restaurant patios -- whether or not as pickup accessories?

And before you head to Watering Bowl with your pooch, make sure to call 720-441-2695 -- permitting issues have caused numerous delays.
