It used to be Yappy Hour at the Liberty Hotel, but the weekly summer event for Boston dog owners is now called Yappier Hour! This is the sixth year of a canine spin on happy hour and is typically held 5:30 until 8:00 pm each Wednesday throughout the summer and will continue into the fall (May-October) as long as weather permits. Just think cocktails and dogtails at the swank Liberty Hotel’s enclosed courtyard called The Yard. To think when this place was a city jail, residents used to get their exercise in this yard.
I know a lot of people will be excited for the 2015 Yappier Hour season at the Liberty Hotel. The first Yappy Hour for the season typically happens at the beginning of May as long as Boston’s weather cooperates. You can always check the Fido Loves Event Calendar for Boston Dogs or follow teh Liberty Hotel on Facebook or twitter.
The very pet friendly Liberty Hotel sets up an outside bar in “The Yard”, which is an enclosed courtyard for dogs and their owners. Drinks and appetizers were served among a unique mix of romping pooches and Bostonians. This is one of my favorite events for meeting other dog owners, enjoying a good cocktail and letting the dogs play in a beautiful setting. Many of the events are sponsored by local dog related businesses or charities. This event should simply be on your todo list.
The Liberty Hotel is an absolutely beautiful restoration of the old jail. Everyone I chatted with had only good things to say about the pet friendly hotel, the three bars – Clink, Alibi, Scampo and The Liberty Bar. The Liberty is located on the edge of Beacon Hill and the Esplanade, near Mass General Hospital. The enclosed space outside is called “The Yard” is a perfect setting for cocktails and conversation while your dog socializes.
