Centrally located at the historic Cloth Market, you’ll be able to enjoy the lifting of lockdown with food, drinks and music while being surrounded by lots of unbelievably cute dachshunds!

After a tough year, we’re taking inspiration from the free spirit and colourful character of the Swinging Sixties, looking to the future and celebrating the good times ahead. All our upcoming events will be full of joy, colour, flowers, sparkle and paw-sitivity!

Revolucion de Cuba is a beautiful, vibrant venue with their plush indoor restaurant with lots of space in-between tables and seating. Make it safer during these times! Their latin-inspired menu is to die for with delicious tapas, cuban brunch and lunch, their famous rum cocktails and lots more.

This is the ultimate feel-good event for all dachshunds, owners and dog lovers alike. We all know how much dachshunds just love to meet other dachshunds so why not treat them to their Best Day Ever.

An exciting day out, lots to sniff and explore on the journey there, a land full of treats and zoomies with fellow pugs AND whole lot of attention and fuss from our dog-loving guests. Its a dog’s dream day out!

If your sweet little dachshund has been by your side throughout this year, treat them to a visit to the Dachshund Cafe Summer of Love – they will absolutely love it! We have so many returning guests to our events because they have the time of their lives. We have a saying here… if the dogs are happy, everyone’s happy! So let’s get this party started…

You can bring any well-behaved dachshund (or just the right side of naughty!) – big or small, mixed or pedigree, puppy or golden oldie. We love all dachshunds so if your dog is a dachshund cross then you’re welcome!


You don’t need to own a dachshund to come and enjoy lots of doggy cuddles and licks. So whether you have previously had a dachshund and miss them so, or you long for your own… or just love love love dogs, this is the event for you.

Imagine being in a room full of off-lead adorable dachshunds all wanting lots of love and attention. There’s no happier place to be!

Our dog cafes have had rave reviews from the likes of Time Out, The Telegraph, Lad Bible and more… making it official, we host the biggest and the BEST experience for any dog lover! Its the perfect present for your dog-loving friend or partner. Just check out our video below and all our event videos to get excited for your visit.

We will be at Revolucion de Cuba on the Sunday 25th July and the breed specific Pug time slots will be at 11:15am and 3pm and are held in the main restaurant. After your session ends you’re welcome to continue the party with your new-found friends in the rooftop Santiago Bar (dogs just need to be put back on lead here).

Your tickets cover entry to this event only but your pug will get a free new and improved Pupuccino with biscuit topper worth £3.50. Plus, there’ll be lots to buy at the Doggy Bakery selling freshly baked Pupcakes, Dognuts, Dog-friendly Cookies and more. Plus, our brand new Pawesome Pick and Mix stall full of little treats that are big on flavour!

All well-behaved dachshunds are welcome, but there are some doggy do’s and dont’s:

  • Do bring your friendly, well socialised & vaccinated dachshunds
  • Do feel free to let your dachshund off lead once inside
  • Do keep a close watch over your dachshund as they remain your responsibility
  • Do toilet your dachshund beforehand and be prepared to clean up any accidents
  • Don’t bring aggressive dogs – if they harm another dog or person it will be your liability

For nervous dogs or older dachshunds we have brand new Chill Zone; a quieter place to sit where you can enjoy the experience at a calmer pace. Please note, we do not allocate seats so if you would like to sit here please arrive a little earlier to make sure you are ahead in the queue.

There’ll be lots of fun and colourful Summer of Love photo opportunities for the insta-savvy doggy! A competition will run all day and if you upload a winning social photo or video of your dog enjoying the café you’ll be in with a chance of winning a pawsome £15 Pets at Home gift voucher prize. Remember its good vibes only… so make your photos as joyful and fun as possible!

Our previous breed specific events have been extremely popular so we advise getting your tickets as soon as possible. We now sell tickets via a ticketing platform so you’ll be able to secure your tickets in just moments – hurrah, no more waiting!

Even though lockdown is lifting, we will be taking all appropriate safety measures and have worked closely with the venue to ensure that this dog event will be safe to go ahead. This includes:

  • Utilising a large indoor area with well spaced out seating plan
  • Multiple hand sanitising stations
  • Props to be sanitised and cleaned regularly
  • Reduced numbers per time slot to allow for more space
