"Billing itself as 'Minnesota's only dog bar,' Unleashed Hounds and Hops, a new dog park-meets-beer hall opens today on the edge of downtown Minneapolis," reports Hannah Sayle.

"Adjacent to the Minneapolis Farmer's Market, the warehouse space is two-thirds off-leash play area for canine companions and one-third enclosed bar and eating area, where you can bring a leashed pup and watch the play area from behind sound-proof glass. Once the weather warms up, a large, outdoor enclosure will also be available for dogs to roam and romp," according to Sayle.
