PAW-fect Places In Newport Beach

July 24, 2018

You’re guaranteed to have a great day if your dog is in tow. Lucky for you, Newport Beach has a large selection of restaurants, hotels, and shopping centers that are dog-friendly. Below is a list of our top picks for you to enjoy with your pup by your side. As always, please be considerate and keep your dog on a leash, where applicable, and clean up after them, as necessary.

Fashion Island Hotel

Not only does this Newport Beach hotel allow dogs of all sizes, but they like to go the extra mile to personalize your experience. Call ahead and expect customized dog biscuits upon your arrival! This hotel also houses restaurants that will allow your pooch on their patio, including Oak Grill and its Fireside Patio. Please note that Fashion Island Hotel does charge a one-time fee of $150 to include your dog in a hotel stay.

Balboa Inn

If you prefer a sea breeze, stay at the historic oceanfront hotel Balboa Inn. This hotel is located right on the Balboa Peninsula and happily welcomes up to two pets of any size to join you during your stay. Plan on paying a fee of $50 per pet for the first night and $25 per pet for each additional night.

Lighthouse Bayview Café

If you and your pooch find yourself near Newport Beach Harbor, stop by Lighthouse Bayview Café for a beautiful view and a delicious meal. The dog-friendly café serves contemporary American cuisine seven days a week and sits adjacent to a 10-acre open park for your dog and you to run around and work off the breakfast beniegts we strongly encourage you to try.


A recent addition to the Newport Beach culinary scene is Zinqué, a European-inspired restaurant with a gorgeous dog-friendly waterfront patio. Stop by for breakfast, lunch, or dinner with your doggo and indulge in their small plates, wine selection, and charming views from the comfort of Zinqué’s heated patio. You can find this local favorite within Lido Marina VIllage.

Shopping at Fashion Island

One of Newport Beach’s iconic shopping centers is Fashion Island, an outdoor retail destination that features 100+ stores that allow your dog to shop alongside you. The upscale yet relaxed atmosphere attracts a wide range of breeds, allowing your dog to make some four-legged friends. It is the perfect place to spend your weekend and your money.

Charlie & Me

Both you and your dog are welcome at Charlie & Me, a posh pet store that carries everything from hip canine clothing to dog-related home décor. Best of all, Charlie & Me is located in Lido Marina Village, a fanciful outdoor plaza lined with specialty shops, clothing boutiques, and restaurants, which is a great place to walk a dog.
