Downtown's Newest Bar Features a "Dog Check"
The Los Angeles Brewing Company, set to open this evening, seems to have thought of everything for the downtown crowd: besides local brews, organic cocktails and upscale California comfort cuisine, there is a layout that incorporates Prohibition Era-tunnels, a bullet-riddled metal door and planned expansion that will include a downstairs cigar lounge. But we're really impressed with how Broadway's newest bar plans to cater to downtown's dog-owning residents—a redundant phrase if I've ever heard one. On its website, the bar promises "outdoor dog-sitting." Blogdowntown reports that the bar features a canine-only patio, so patrons can "check" their pooch while they dine inside.
Anything that ensures that no one—especially not the entitled pooches of TV stars—rubs their little doggy butts on the table is okay in our books.
