The Happy Dog returns Friday, June 25, 2021!

After over a year, we will be reopening to the public – initially with limited hours, and inevitably, back to our previous, normal schedule! Please visit our Facebook and Instagram pages for updates and details.

We sincerely appreciate your patience and look forward to spending the summer with you!

The Happy Dog is a neighborhood corner bar in the best sense of the term.

We’ve got hot dogs and beer, and lots of live music, from rock and country to punk and polka. The bartenders are friendly and the bar itself is open and inviting – a racetrack oval wood bar, with plenty of old chrome barstools. It’s not retro because it’s pretty much unchanged from the time the Socotch family built the place back in the late 40’s.
