  • Making Raleigh a more pet-friendly city

    We think it's time to bring an entirely new entertainment experience to Raleigh, one that dogs, dog owners, and dog lovers can all enjoy. Currently, the city does not have any off-leash dog friendly venues that cater to the needs of dog owners. Bark will be a hub for dog related events and happenings.

  • The Yard

    The yard area is a clean and regulated environment where member dogs can roam freely as if in a standard dog park. Bark's trained yard monitors will keep the peace and clean up after your dog so that you, your family, and your friends can enjoy the experience. We make it a priority to promote healthy pet ownership in the community. We'll feature special events like shelter dog meet-n-greets, canine competitions, and community classes.

  • The Bar

    The bar area is similar to a typical dog-friendly location in Raleigh. Dogs will be required to be leashed in this area. Our space will feature a full service bar with coffee, tea, local beer, and wine. Locally sourced food and snacks will be available from popular local eateries. Non-members will be welcome to use the patio and bar space.

Bark's Custom Check-in System

You must be a Bark Member to use the yard area at Bark. When you visit, you will need to sign in both your dog and yourself. Memberships are important to insure that your dog is safe to be around others and is up to date on his or her shots. We strive to maintain a regulated space that keeps all patrons safe. Trained yard staff will ensure that rules are enforced and the yard stays clean.
