A restaurant with a designated dog park will soon open three locations around Denver.

Texas-based Mutts Canine Cantina is expanding to the Mile High City, bringing with it off-leash areas of 1 to 2 acres with each dog-friendly restaurant.

That means you can watch your dog play while you drink a margarita or beer on the patio.

“If you asked someone to describe me, it would fall along the lines of foodie and dog lover — that’s my M.O.,” Mutts Denver franchise owner Felice Halliday said in a press release. “I am confident that I speak for much of Denver in saying that we need a concept like Mutts … where you can drain your dog’s energy in 20 minutes while relaxing and having a cold beer after a hard day … .”

Dog owners pay for their pets to access the park, at $8.95 per day, $16.95 per month or $169.50 for a yearly membership in Texas.

The restaurant is free for humans to enter, and the menu consists of chicken sandwiches, burgers, fries, shakes and alcoholic beverages.

A dogs’ menu includes beef broth and peanut butter pupsicles and bite-sized beef “doggie dogs.”

Mutts already has locations in Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas, with more coming to Texas and now Denver. In its press release, Mutts didn’t reveal an opening timeline or any of the forthcoming Denver restaurants’ locations.
