Just in time for a sunny Sunday in the forecast, Jack Daniels and DO617 have assembled a list of dog-friendly bars and patio eateries in and near Boston and Cambridge. Everybody – humans and dogs -- can get out together for a sociable meal in the open air. Here are some of Boston’s dog-friendly bars and patios.
The Automatic Food & Drink at 50 Hampshire Street in Cambridge -- This neighborhood pub has a nice, foliage-lined patio and old-fashioned picnic tables accompanied by a classic soundtrack. Belly up with your pup.

Bar Boulud at 776 Boylston Street (Back Bay) -- Bar Boulud, at the Mandarin Hotel, goes the extra miles by offering doggy menu and props for picture-taking fun.
Brendan Behan Pub at 378 Centre Street (Jamaica Plain) -- Brendan Behan Pub welcomes your dog indoors (just in case of rain, but we’re not thinking about that). The pub doesn’t serve food, but you are welcome to bring in a pizza from Captain Nemo’s (across the street).
