Boo’s Ice House & Dog Bar
1314 10th Street Sarasota, FL 34236

One beautiful day, Boo’s Ice House & Dog Bar owners Mindy and Bobby were relaxing over cocktails and started chatting about opening up a dog park and bar. They had just been to one in another city and couldn’t believe how fun it was, even without Raven and Boo (their fur babies) joining them. That idea turned into an obsession, and five years later, they are thrilled to bring Boo’s Ice House & Dog Bar to their hometown in sunny Sarasota, Florida! Their mission now is to put a smile on the face of every person and dog that walks through our doors by providing a unique, dog-friendly community destination where dogs and people can socialize in a leash-free environment.
