The dogs of SJQ: Calling all furry friends

  • Services
St James Quarter is the pawfect day out for you and your canine bestie! With a variety of dog friendly retailers and restaurants to choose from, you and your furry sidekick can plan the ultimate day out together.

John Lewis, & Other Stories, Carvela and H&M are all waiting to inspire you with the best fashion tips that even your dog will approve of. Need to finish off the look? Don’t worry, Superdrug, the Body Shop, Kiehls (and many more) are all on hand for those beauty and skincare necessities. The products may not be dog friendly, but the staff certainly are!

Lego and Hamleys are also encouraging your dogs to come along and play in their Edinburgh store. Hamleys rule is: if you can pick your dog up, they’re welcome to come in!

A day of exploring the Galleria can be tough work but don’t worry, we have you covered. Grab a bite or quench your thirst with your precious pet at Tortilla, Hotel Chocolat, Black Sheep Coffee, The Alchemist or Pho. Or, for a quick pick-me-up head to Starbucks to enjoy a coffee and a puppaccino with your pooch.

All the excitement at The Quarter can be thirsty work, so we also have water bowls on level 1-3 of the Galleria to ensure all doggy visitors are happy and hydrated.

In addition to the hospitable retailers in The Quarter, the Guest Services team are on hand to help with your pet queries. There are a variety of dog carriers available - including pet pushchairs and backpacks for smaller dogs - to ensure your pampered pooch travels through The Quarter in style. The carriers are available to book online or by dropping by the Guest Services desk on level 1 and the Guest Mobility unit on level B2 to meet one of our paw-some team.

Why not also take advantage of the Dropit service to ensure your hands are free to push the pet pushchair and give them regular treats of course.

At St James Quarter, no paws are left behind, so why not take a trip down and raise the WOOF with us? Stop for a bite to eat and browse the shops, we’ll make sure it’s the PAWFECT day out…
