Lygon Street's dog-friendly karaoke bar.

Benjy's has a dog-friendly karaoke courtyard. We repeat: dog-friendly karaoke. It's yet to be seen if this means doggos are encouraged to sing along, but it's the best regardless. If you've ever found yourself loitering on the northern end of Lygon Street with your diva pup and a song in your heart, your time has come.

The venue has a karaoke bar, live bands and musicians, an all-day kitchen (serving vegetarian and vegan fare) and — perhaps most importantly — a beer garden that welcomes all your four-legged friends. The interior is worth a little scream — think Barbie, disco balls and a colour scheme inspired by those candy necklaces you used to crunch in high school. Basically, it provides all the raw ingredients for a banger of a night out — especially if you dress your dog up as Mariah Carey.
