While your AVEN luxury apartment is a very dog friendly place to live, the same cannot be said about the rest of downtown Los Angeles. That especially goes for restaurants. However, there are a handful of parks and restaurants to wine and dine at with the pup near AVEN.

Dog Friendly Restaurants

Spring Street Bar

First up is Spring Street Bar. A great bar featuring craft beers and gourmet sandwiches, there is also a fabulous outdoor, dog friendly patio.

Zinc Cafe

Zinc Cafe also offers room for your AVEN pup. And, it should be noted that this spot has some great vegan and vegetarian options on their menu.

Additional Dog Friendly Bars

Thankfully there is more, and that includes:

DTLA Dog Parks

One luxury about living at AVEN is that we have a fantastic dog park on our California Deck. Plus, we have our very own public park right below us. The only downside is that dogs are not allowed at the South Park Commons. But, here is a list of a number of wonderful dog parks in the area.

Arts District Dog Park

Arts District Dog Park is up first over at 1004 E 4th St. This park is often packed so your four-legged friend has tons of opportunity to mingle.

LA Live Dog Park & Grand Hope Park

You also have a great option just blocks away at LA Live! Well maintained, one unique thing about this dog park is that it has wood chips giving it a much cleaner look. And don’t worry, they replace the wood chips every month or so. We also cannot forget about another neighboring park, Grand Hope Park.

Silver Lake Reservoir

Last up is Silver Lake Reservoir. While this is not in DTLA, it is still close by. Additionally, it includes two dog parks, one big and one small. There is also a basketball court if you have the kids tag along. Covered in grass overlooking the water, a picnic here is definitely an option as well.


There are tons of ways to have a blast with your pup at AVEN this year. And that includes our Yappy Hours on our Wooftop Deck. Have fun and stayed tuned on our social media to see when our next Yappy Hour is!
