The second location of Old Fourth Ward dog park and bar Fetch Park opens Monday, January 10, at luxe retail complex Buckhead Village (formerly the Shops Buckhead).
Located on the corner of Buckhead Avenue and North Fulton Drive, Fetch-Buckhead features a similar layout to the Old Fourth Ward dog park and includes a large green space with mud-free turf, cooling stations for hot days, shaded seating areas, outdoor televisions, and a full bar inside an Airstream camper serving beer, wine, cocktails, and coffee.
Dog owners can either obtain monthly memberships or day passes for the park. Memberships start at $30 per month or $10 for a day pass. All dogs entering Fetch must be up-to-date on their vaccinations, which are kept on file, and be spayed or neutered.
Owned by Stephen Ochs, Fetch first opened on the corner of Daniel Street and DeKalb Avenue in the Old Fourth Ward over three years ago. A Nashville location of Fetch opened two years ago in the Germantown neighborhood. In addition to the Old Fourth Ward and Buckhead parks, locations in Alpharetta on Encore Parkway and at the Works in Underwood Hills are both expected to open this year. [Official]
