DOG lovers are in for a wintry treat at the new Wolf & Bear Dog Cafe which features a log cabin where canine, caffeine and even a little booze can be enjoyed in the company of “snowdogs”.
Wolf & Bear Dog Cafe, by the same owner of Bengal Brew Cat Cafe, officially opened last Thursday (Nov. 10) in Manhattan Parkview in Cubao, Quezon City. It is unique in the way the interiors evoke images of snow-capped mountain with wolfish and bearish dogs prowling below the log cabin.
Proprietor Don Michael Perez told MetroPets that he got the idea for his dog cafe's name after overhearing two strangers' spirited discussion about his white Alaskan malamutes, Sari and Ghost. Ghost particularly resembled a polar bear when it was younger, he said, and the strangers were arguing whether they're seeing a wolf or a bear.
Wolf & Bear dog cafe has its own entrance, but one can also use the adjoining door from Bengal Brew. In a small enclosed area between the two cafes was where we met Winter, a docile Newfoundland, stationed there with one staff to let people know that they are about to enter dogs' territory.
At the log cabin, highly spirited pugs, Jack Russells, Italian Greyhound, Shih Tzus and poodles kept the crowd busy. The cabin area is where people can have food and drinks and, perhaps, cocktails. Wolf & Bear dog cafe has a liquor license, Perez said.
