It’s Not Yappy Hour, It’s Yappier Hour at The Liberty Hotel

It used to be Yappy Hour at the Liberty Hotel, but the weekly event for Boston dog owners starting Wednesday, May 8th is the beginning of the “Yappier Hour 2013 Season”.  This is the fifth year of a canine spin on Happy hour and will be held 5:30 until 8:00 pm each Wednesday through the summer and will continue into the fall 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 are excited for the 2013 Yappy Hour season at the Liberty Hotel. I just informed by the Liberty Hotel, Wednesday May 8th, 2013 will be the first Yappy Hour for the season as long as Boston’s weather cooperates. I will update this article as soon as I learn more about event sponsors and specific evenings.

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 great setting. There are a few additions to Yappier Hour this year as well.

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.
