And here they are, without much ado, the much-awaited listing of pet-friendly dining venues across Dubai where you can relax with your furry homies:
LDC Kitchen + Coffee, One JLT
The new LDC Kitchen + Coffee in One JLT is more than just your average all-day dining eatery. Enjoy a quirky menu that includes Fun Guy pizza, Hot Mess burger and Dutch Dutch, Baby pancakes or a simple, ethically sourced cuppa joe and fresh, home-made bakery items while on a doggy date with friends on the pet-friendly terrace. The outdoor area is adorned in twinkling lights and plenty of greenery for that urban jungle vibe, and even doggie bowls for the pooch when they need some hydration from soaking up all the sunshine. There’s even a dedicated kids section on the menu, so the whole family is catered for.
LDC Kitchen + Coffee at One JLT is open seven days a week from 7am to 12 midnight and until 1am during the weekends.

Aprons & Hammers Beach House, Palm West Beach
Sea, sun, sand, sangrias and seafood. It doesn’t get any better than this. Oh, but it does.
Palm West Beach’s recently opened waterfront restaurant and lounge, the all-new Aprons & Hammers Beach House, allows pets on the non-smoking terrace area as well as the non-smoking section of the beach. Catch up with friends over buckets and platters of your favourite seafood, while indulging in pitchers of your go-to drink and watch furry friends live their best lives with the wind in their fur and sand at their paws. No more FOMO for the pooch, and you can enjoy your time outdoors without feeling like you’ve left your best pal at home.
Head down for a pit-stop after a walk or spend a lazy afternoon on the sunbeds with a book in one hand and cuddling the dog in the other.
