Every Dog Has His Day at the New Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar

Find out how Lazy Dog got its canine-centric look.

When Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar first opened in Southern California in 2003, Chris Simms wanted to call it Rocky Mountain Lodge. The name seemed a bit stuffy, but he retained those ski lodge elements in his restaurant decor. Instead he named the restaurant for a dog he saw laying by a fireplace at a lodge in Jackson Hole, Wyo. He wanted everyone to feel as comfortable as a lazy dog in his restaurant. Now the restaurant features hound elements throughout. Bones for the door handles, statues of dogs and a photo of Simms’ beloved Tessa decorate the space. The patio here is even dog-friendly. Take a look at some of the canine elements at the new Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar at Downtown Summerlin.
