Greenville is getting its first official dog bar.
KPE & SGE LLC has purchased 69 Rocky Slope Road with plans to open Unleashed Dog Bar before football season. Joe Teague of Joyner Commercial represented the buyer, and Grayson Burgess of the Burgess Company represented the seller, Claudia S. Alhassan.
The building is a 1,000-sqaure-foot brick duplex with an attached 1,000-square-foot warehouse. An additional 3,000–4,000 square feet of property will be used as an outdoor, fenced area where dogs will be allowed to go off leash. The front brick building will be used for an office and dog bathing area, and the warehouse will house the bar, where craft and domestic beer and wine will be served.
Many local breweries, bars, and restaurant patios are dog-friendly, but dogs must remain on their leashes. This will be the first bar in the Greenville area specifically designed so dogs don’t have to be restrained, as long as all parties follow the rules of conduct.
The owners are modeling Unleashed Dog Bar after Lucky Dog Bark and Brew in Charlotte, N.C., where dogs run free in a safe environment while their owners can enjoy 20 brews on tap.
