Bar K  is reinventing the dog park experience by creating a joyful destination for people and dogs. Bar K’s unique space for dogs, combined with a bar and restaurant for people, makes for a brand new type of experience.

Starting as a pop-up idea that combined cocktails and canines, Bar K quickly became a cult sensation in Kansas City — with more than 700 dogs in attendance at its first event.

For dog owners who wish to bring their pet, Bar K is membership-based and currently growing by about 100 new members a month.   Bar K also offers daily passes for owners, and it’s entry is free for those without dogs to come eat, drink, work or dog watch.

“If you’re working from home and you have a dog, you can grab your laptop and come here,” Leib Dodell said. “We have Wi-Fi and coffee, and your dog can play while you work. We like to think of it as a great co-working space.”

With their rapid growth and success in Kansas City, the founders decided to bring the one-of-kind experience to other Midwest cities in the second half of 2021.

“We’re going to open in St. Louis in September and then Oklahoma City will be a couple months behind that,”
