Dog lovers can rejoice this December with two Christmas pop-up cafés right in the heart of Birmingham.

The first-ever ‘Barky Blinders Pop-Up Doggo Café’ invites dogs to get into the festive spirit and enjoy a specially made Christmas doggo dinner and a puppacino or pawroni, while their owners can enjoy tea, coffee, soft or alcoholic drinks from the bar, with food available to order. In addition, there will be a Barkery stall complete with lots of Christmas treats including donuts and woofins to buy.

All dogs are encouraged to show off their best Christmas or Peaky Blinders outfits for the Best Dressed competition, where there will be prizes given for the winners and plenty of opportunities for photographs.

This year the Barky Blinders event hosts a monitored Puppy Corner that will be away from the noise of the main area – a brilliant opportunity to socialise young dogs in a safe and fun environment. Please note that all puppies need to have received their full course of vaccinations in order to attend.

The two Barky Blinders events will take place at the Queens Arms on Newhall Street – Round 1 on Sunday 8th December and Round 2 on Sunday 15th December.

Entrance to the Round 1 event on 8th December is separated into three different time slots: 12.00pm, 1.45pm and 3.30pm. Time slots need to be booked in advance by emailing with numbers and humans that wish to attend.

Entrance to the Round 2 event on 15th December is separated into two different time slots: 1.30pm and 3.15pm. Please note that the Puppy Corner is available at 3.15pm. Time slots need to be booked in advance by emailing with numbers and humans that wish to attend.

Ticket prices are Adult: £7.00, Children £3.00, Children under 6: Free and most importantly doggo tickets are free! On-street parking is available in and around St. Paul’s Square on Sundays, but be aware that spaces are limited.
