Ice House & Dog Bar

Boo’s Ice House & Dog Bar

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

A unique, open-air, dog-friendly community destination in the Rosemary District of Sarasota, Florida where people and their dogs can put a smile on their faces by freely interacting in a leash-free environment while they socialize, grab a drink or a bite to eat.

If nothing makes you smile more than dogs, consider Boo’s Ice House & Dog Bar your second backyard, your new favorite neighborhood park, and maybe even your new home away from home. But here, it’s not just about the pups; it’s about you too! That’s why they offer tasty bites, cocktails, beer, and wine to make sure puppy parents can hang out and make friends while their fur babies make their own (and make everyone laugh too).

Hours: Tuesday through Thursday 12 p.m. – 9 p.m., 12 p.m. – 10 p.m., Saturday 11 a.m. – 10 p.m., Sunday 11 a.m. – 9 p.m.

Pete’s Ybor

Pete’s Ybor

Pete’s is all about fresh food, community, and family. They opened their doors in 2019 after falling in love with the St. Pete community.

They quickly grew out of the first location and opened a new shop in the grand central district.
