Nestled in the heart of Erskineville, The Erko is definitely worth a visit for you and your furry friends. With a smoker out the back, this pub specialises in American BBQ dishes like smoked ribs, wings and veggies. Most importantly, they do have an entire wall filled with polaroids of dogs… if that doesn’t convince you to get down there, we’re not sure what will.

This art-deco-style pub built in 1936 welcomes all pups, big or small – just be prepared for them to be the centre of attention.
