Want to socialize Fido and get your caffeine fix at the same time?
Fetch, the long-awaited Old Fourth Ward dog park-bar-restaurant concept is set to open this weekend at 520 Daniel St., Curbed Atlanta first reported. The business will open for founding members on Friday and to the public on Saturday.
Fetch will start out by serving drinks from West Midtown roaster Firelight Coffee out of an Airstream trailer. Owner Stephen Ochs -- whose business partner is former Atlanta Falcons player Garrett Reynolds -- said he expects to have a liquor license within the next two weeks, after which custom cocktails, beer and wine will be available for purchase.
A restaurant and bar, Fetch Ice House, will follow this fall, serving what Ochs calls "high end bar food with a Texas twist."
The park, set to be open from 7:30 a.m.-10 p.m. will offer an area for smaller dogs and one for all dogs, two outdoor TVs and wifi throughout.
Fetch will also partner with dating app Bumble to offer a singles night the first Wednesday of every month.
Ochs and Reynolds hope to partner with local businesses, dog shelters and non-profits to raise money and awareness for local charities and organizations.
