The idea for The Dog Bar came to J.P. Brewer while watching her dogs at the park, and she thought, “Wouldn’t this be great with a beer?”
The Dog Bar, at 2300 Central Ave. in St. Petersburg, is part bar, part dog park. Brewer first opened it in Charlotte, North Carolina, then decided to open a St. Petersburg location with Fred Meltzer last year.
An annual $40 membership fee and shot records are required for dogs. Look for Meltzer’s inseparable Great Danes: Pierce, who is blind, and Skylar, who is deaf. Together, Meltzer jokes, they “make one perfect dog.”
