Happy Hour: Gone To The Dogs

The always pet-friendly Kimpton hotel group is offering dog owners another chance to socialize with pooch in tow.

The new Hotel Monaco Alexandria is hosting a Doggie Happy Hour every Tuesday and Thursday from 5 to 8 p.m. in the hotel’s courtyard. Dogs get complimentary gourmet treats and bowls of fresh water, while humans sip cocktails and snack on light bites from Jackson 20’s chef Jeff Armstrong.

The happy hour is scheduled to run from April to October, weather permitting.

Pictured above is Charlie, the hotel's "director of pet relations."

Nothing new in this - back before Kimpton turned this former Holiday Inn Select into a boutique spot, they ran the same Doggie Happy Hour here for more than a decade.

I think it was always Kimpton's intention to bring back the tradition, but renovations to the patio space took a while so some people were starting to wonder if it had been scrapped.
