Bar K Dog Bar is the ultimate stop for dogs and dog lovers in Kansas City. Bar K is a fully staffed dog park with a bar and grill, as well as an event space. You can visit the space as either a Guest or as a Member, and kids are welcomed as well as dogs. Along with the expansive outdoor dog park, there is an indoor off-leash play area and a separate dog park for smaller dogs.
