Did you know the Chicago Athletic Association is pet friendly? It’s true — we love your four-legged furry friends. You’re allowed to travel with your pet and they can stay with you in your room (no size or weight limits, we just ask you limit it to two pets). While they’re not allowed in the restaurants or bars, you can chill out in the lobby Drawing Room all you want with them on leash.
And since you’re traveling with your dog, you likely want to take them around the city with you (let’s face it, they like checking out new scenes, too!). Many retail shops allow dogs to saunter through and many restaurants allow you to have your dog with you on the patio. You can’t have dogs in restaurants, generally, due to health codes. Here are some great patios around the city where you can chill out with your pooch.
