As pet-obsessed as Denver can be, it's important to plan ahead when you bring Fido along for food and drink adventures about town. Almost two years ago, the city passed an ordinance allowing restaurant owners to turn portions of their patios into puppy-permitted spaces, with some restrictions. Now, as spring is heating up, humans and their four-legged friends come out of hibernation to enjoy Denver's pet-friendly patio spaces. So, if you and your four-legged friend find yourselves out and about, here's a list patios to pounce on.

The dog-friendly patios are listed here in alphabetical order. Don't see your go-to spot on the list? Kindly let us know in the comments section below.
