Hours: Open daily from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Start a book club but let your dog pick the book. All three Bookmans locations let you bring your pup as long as they are on a leash. Even if you don't have a dog, you'll most likely meet one at Bookmans with all the dog events they have. There's also free wifi and air conditioning for hanging out.

Enjoy a beer with friends and your pup on the patio. Tucson Hop Shop welcomes well behaved four-legged friends, they just ask that you keep them on a leash. Tucson Hop Shop always has something going on, they're always inviting food trucks, their tap list is pretty great and the scene is relaxing. Go after work, after a bike ride or whenever you have a free evening.
