The Dog’s Day:

Chicago’s 1st Pop-Pup Bar & Playplace for Dogs!

Photographer: Ashley Gear

Now Open through September 23rd!

One Tail at a Time and Emporium Pop-ups have teamed up to make every dog lover’s dream (and their dog’s dream!) a reality.

The LoganSquarist describes The Dog’s Day as “The party your dog wants to take you to,” and they’re 110% correct! While you sip your new favorite cocktail, like the “Bark Side of the Moon,” your dog can take in a giant fire hydrant, run through a dog house filled with stuffies, or dive snoot first into a ball pit full of tennis balls. Heck, you can even jump right in with ’em!

What else makes this pop-up dog friendly? It’s saving lives! Proceeds from the event will be donated to One Tail at a Time’s rescue, outreach, and advocacy programs so that more lives can keep being saved.

So you’re convinced, right?! GOOD! We can’t wait to see you (and maybe the furry family members in your life) now through September 23rd.

The Dog’s Day is located at 2367 N Milwaukee Ave. and open to the public daily (Tuesday-Sunday), with the exception of few special events where you’ll need a ticket to attend. For full details (including operating hours and event info), visit

The Dog’s Day is sponsored by (and couldn’t be possible without!) Few Spirits, Grounds & Hounds Coffee Co., New Belgium Brewing, and Fetch! Pet Care. Thank you Sponsors for your generous support, Emporium Pop-ups for inviting us to collaborate on such an important project, and to everyone coming out to enjoy Chicago’s very first Pop-PUP!
